I thought I'd try some different ammo in my 983S 22 Mag. I have tried just about every 30 & 34 grain ammo on the market in this rifle and all I got for my trouble were shotgun pattern groups. This rifle really prefers the 40gr stuff, or so I thought until I tried some Hornady 30gr V-Max. Wow! What a difference! I had one 3 shot group at 100 yards that was under 1" with 2 of those touching each other. A head shot on a rabbit at 100 yards is reality now! I don't have a chrono, but it gets down range noticabley faster than any of the 40gr stuff I had been using. I'm going to order some more real soon!

Every gun is different. My 883 didn't care for any of the 30 Gr. bullets I tried including the Hornady V-Max but has a strong preference for the Federal Game Shok 50 Gr. #757.

However, I sure can't argue with a 1" 3 shot group at 100 yds. I hope to do that well 'some day'. In the meantime, the rifle can outshoot me.
