I was introduce to shooting .22 cal. from the bench several years ago. I'am hooked. That is all that I shoot anymore. I have been shooting for 30 plus years. Pistols and rifles. How small of a group is possible with a .22 at that range. There are a load of variables to address and consider. 3 rifles and scopes, hundreds or even thousands of rounds of ammo, modifications equipment, and lots of talking, reading, research and testing. And I'am not satisfied as of yet. Various types of ammo and still testing. The best 20 shot group to date is around 3.5". I cannot thank this and various other forums and sites for all of the what seems to be end less supply of great information. I hope I did not take over any ones thread, it was not my intent. If you have not tried shooting benchrest .22 cal. out to 200 yards to make the smallest group, give it a try. It sounded kind of dumb at the time but, as I said, I'am hooked. john out.
