Took a little trial and error, but that's kinda fun anyway.


Went to the range this afternoon and shot this 15 round group.

No real fliers in the group, the first shot was a little high, dialed it down a smidge and it was all good. 


I did also take the .17 HM2 out and played with it some. It shoots nice and flat, but my groups weren't good with the Eley ammo. "3 inches at 100 yards" Going to try a couple of other rounds and will report what it likes the best when I find out myself.

I love to see honest targets with a couple that just happened to get away.
 
Honesty is key to integrity and solid shooting as a platform.  I hate seeing 10-15 shot groups in which it is only 1 6 shot or 7 shot hole.
 
The couple that went a little "off" make it a perfect target.
 
I like the aguila a little smelly but mostly accurate, the S&K has done good for me...

Thanks Lap. Appreciate the recognition of range honesty. 

Each of has their own goals shooting. I bought that .22 for $199 at Bass Pro, got the simmons scope off the sample list for <$60, mounted it with some rings I already had laying around and shot what I consider a good group at 50 yards with $3.30 a box ammo. "to me $3.30 a box is pricey, but I'm cheap like that" I'm thinking I pretty much maximized my quality for the money spent. 

It's not the best of gear or ammo, or groups, but it made me smile all the same. Big Smile

shootin .22 is about the most fun day I ever have anymore you can shoot all day never tire and never have to worry about how much you spent compared to other cartridges even value box $10 for 500 is fun presenting its own challenge for the ones that are not exactly the same as the last.
Hitting any group you can place a dollar bill over from any range is a good day...  I just am not that thrilled with the 100yrd-200yrd quarter group shot pictures,  it is more impressive to do it with a .22...
