Grouping the .22
The other day I sighted in my .22, and today I thought I would shoot a box of 50 shells In a target and see what kind of pattern I got. So I put up a target at 60 yards, and set up a shooting bench. There was about a 15 mph side wind so the bullets drifted left. The target is about 4 inches across. Not bad for a rifle that all I paid is 90 dollars for. I didn't know that a .22 could group like that. I wander what kind of group I could shoot if I put more money in to a .22?
Click on the image to enlarge, then you can see the target just to the right of the tree at the edge of the grass on a blue piece of foam that I staple targets to.
