I would try to get the best groups possible at 100 yards and then try at 300+ to see how they

At those distances (300+ yards) every thing comes into play. (Wind,mirage,position,light
and aiming point).

300 yards with any rim fire is like 600 yards with a center fire (Tough).

Ok, ya I'll try that. We were also thinking of re-loading. Although we don't know how that'd go. We aren't even sure if you can find rim-fire shells with a fresh primer in it, let alone 22. Cal bullets.
