    Hey folks. Well, I have the 10/22 built and fine scope on it. At 50 yards, it ain't no problem to get sub 1/2 inch groups. But when I stretch it out to 300, hard to keep it inside five inches on a calm day!
    I also have a CZ 455 that will shoot MOA at 300, but I believe this 10/22 will do that or maybe better....with the right ammo.
    You know to "handload" a .22 rimfire, you try as many brands, bullet weights, velocities, etc. as your checkbook and time will allow. Best that I tried at 50 is rather expensive; the Wolf Match Extra. I only have about 14 rounds left and will find a quiet day to try them at 300. Tried my sub-sonic Fiocchi and Normas, and may re-visit them again. Tried Reminton/Eley Club, Eley Standard, and some others with not much success.
    Which brings me to the question for you: please share your successes using your 10/22 at 300. I'd like to know what ammo you found worked for you and how they grouped. Be honest about the group sizes,ok? ;):rolleyes: Also, describe your setup,please.

    Seems it would be hard to find a load that would shoot excellent at 50 and good at 300....unless it was in a bolt gun...
    The actions of the semi would have a definite affect on the power of the bullet leaving the barrel.....
    Is this not correct.....

    Agreed, and I won't get as accurate with the 10/22 as my 455. But, I still search for better ammo for 300 and longer. I think it's out there and I believe the semi can do better than I am getting now.
