Re: New 10/22 accuracy HELP!!

I do a lot of rimfire target shooting mainly benchrest and the biggest problem is not the rifle but the ammo. Finding what ammo your rifle shoots the best is one of the main problems.

You list that the barrel is free floating which is great and that you shoot bulk Remington ammo. I would suggest that you try a box of Federal 711B, Wolf Target or SK Standard Plus. They run about $5 per box but you can see a dramatic difference in your accuracy. I prefer the Federal 711B ammo for my 10/22 that shoots a group under 1/2 inch at 50 yards.

If you can find some try CCI VELOCITERS 36 gr well shot 1/2 groups at 25 yards with standard cheap 10/22 carbine.Federal Bulk pack will shoot quarter size groups 25 shots at 25 yards. Remingtion Golden bullets are junk in mine.

I agree, every rifle wants something different...try a bunch of different brands before you have more work done to the rifle.
Good luck!!
