The CCI SV's are so inconsistent I wouldn't put much stock in any results achieved with them which is why I suggest the ammo change.

I've shot many, many different rifles over the years from pawn shop rack guns to the very finest weapons our military could produce.

I always found the same recipie works best for all which is to never shoot for accuracy and consistency without a few fouling shots unless you are one of those guys who plans to clean between each shot.

Even .22lr Match Ammo is designed for 100yds or less here and most .22lr matches are shot at less than 50yds.

Re: Cold Bore Improvment

I did some cleaning on the gun to night, I mopped it with hoppe's 9 and brushed the phuck out of it with a nylon brush. and did a 2 passes with the bronze brush. then ran some easly fitting patches followed by some tight fitting. i was getting lead slivers and little chunks of black stuff out. I repeated this process a few times. I should get a chance to go shoot it tomorrow. I think this is the cleanest this rifle bore has ever been in its life.

Re: Cold Bore Improvment

Once 'pon a time I knew a fellow, a smallbore outdoor champion that won more 1600 aggregate championships than the law oughta allow. When asked one day how often he cleaned his .22 match rifle....he replied..."I don't!" At that time he stated he had over 80,000 rounds fired through it!!

FWIW!!
