I am also thinking that any ammo change might be worth a try .
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.
