Find the box that shot good and note it's lot number. See if you can find any more of that lot number as it should give the same or similar results. Other lot numbers may or may not give you the same results. Consistency in production costs money, it is what is different between a box of Thundertirds and a box of 10X or R50. If you really want to chase the rabbit you'll need to start testing and then buying same lots of 10X and similar.Has anyone had success with Blazer 22lr? I had the best group ever with it at 100y, then total garbage for the rest of the 2x boxes I had.
I have a lightweight anschutz hunting gun. Before that had accurized 10/22's. I tried many of the expensive target ammos but hated the smell of some of the powders! For me a 22 needs to smell like cci from my childhood days!
I have had acceptable consistent accuracy with good ole cci round noses and thats what I use because I like the plastic boxes. I dont care for paper boxes in the field and in my truck.
WIND is much more the enemy than accuracy for any particular better quality ammo.
Also - Contrary to conventional centerfire ballistics, lower velocity rimfire loads are less susceptible to wind than the faster ones.
This article attempts to provide an explanation of the effect. Simply put, when the high velocity ammo crosses the sound barrier(approx 1100-1300FPS) the bullet is destabilized amd the effects of wind more pronounced. For a target shooter trying for 1/4” accuracy a 50 yards the effects can be noticable. My own experience has been mixed, with less influence of this effect at the longer ranges, with higher velocity cartridges often offering advantages in the degree of drop(elevation)I would like to hear why a lower velocity load is less susceptible to wind.
