Need help in interpreting this first range report. Stock 10/22 (bolt buffer only)+ weaver 3x9 33 AO scope. About 500 rounds of cheap ammo so far. At 75 feet (25 yrd) using a 50 ft target (its all I had). On a single sandbag only. 4 rows of shots using 4 seperate and increasingly more expensive ammo. First target is 10 shot warm up (5 shots from me+ 5 shots from my son) the following two targets in the row are 5 shot groups (each of us had a target)
Row 1 bulk Federal camps $1 box
Row 2 rem targets standar velocity $2.49/box
Row 3 cci mini-mags $3 box
Row4 rem Target Eley $6 box.
My first impression is its not the "tack-Driver" I thought it was going to be...Maybe I am expecting to much? Also not much of a difference from feds and the rem targets despite 2 1/5 times the cost. Slight (??significant??) improvement to the cci and more with the eley. Overall to this novice shooter I am a little diappointed. Would love some comments about the above!
Is this kind of distribution what I can expect from a stock gun? Is a single sand bag enough? I suppose that at 50 yrds the distribution will worsen...The eley seemed the best but not the 1/4" club material for sure. Is this my technique or the gun...(I already think I know the answer) What should a decent shooter expect under these conditions???HELP
At 25 yds and from a novice shooter that aint bad,you really only need 2 things now, patience and practice
Ive been shooting for 43 years and only do about that well at 100 yds with a rifle I know very well.
