Re: first rifle I payed for, how to improve
timney are easy to install. The problem with a 223 it is a little small for your goal distance(800-1000). A fast twist barrel is required to send a larger projectile downrange. The largest 22cal projectile will be easily overcome with the slightest wind change.
