    There are many things that effect accuracy in a 22. Most( I said most, not all ) 22s are rather generic today and so is most of the ammo used.
    But what happens when you change one part of generic. The answer improved accuracy.
    I have heard time and time again how accurate dad's old 22 was. And there is some truth to this. For example that old Cooey dad had could shoot the flies of a wall at 50 yards. And why not, after all, the bore on some of those old 22s is actully .002-.003 tighter than todays barrels. This was done for two reasons. The first was to compensate for crappy ammo and the second to give the rifle a bit more accuracy. Many target rifles ( european target rifles have under sized bores. Most notably is Valmit barrels)
    The second is that cheap Norinco JW ,what ever , has a target chamber. This gives it a bit more accuracy but also causes jamming.
    The list goes on and on.
    I never had jamming issues with my Norinco JW 15 with any ammo, but it sure does like Eley green. Puts them all in the same hole.

    It was quite interesting at our fall cross-country shoot a week ago last Saturday, most are using high velocity ammo, with the attitude that more velocity is better, and are not fairing all that well with shot placement. Us old guys who take the time to bench-rest test a lot of different ammos with little or no concern for price per box have learned that various rifles shoot better with different ammo, and usually take home the top prizes every time. Even the same rifle, side by side may shoot better with different ammo than exactly the same make and model of rifle.

    Testing with a bench rest, indoors is good scientific method; it eliminates as many variables as possible, and outlines other deficiencies, such as trigger pull which you may or may not be able to fix. Once you have the rifle shooting as accuracy as you can with the ammo it likes, you can then do any fine sight adjustments to bring impact to the point of aim.

    After that, you can't blame the rifle, the sights, the ammo; it is all up to you. Do your part and the rifle will do it's job, every time!

    Or maybe I'm just not that good.

    Either way I needed to bulk up an order to free shipping level someplace and they have the things on sale so I bought a few thousand...
    blazer is good stuff, I bought a few boxes back when the lgs had them for $19/brick when everyone was up to $30+

    The new pronature store in NB opening this month is supposed to have [email protected] $9/Brick! Yes. $9/500rds for their grand opening.
    No idea what brand, but damn! I have never seen that price for a brick anywhere in my 10yrs of gunning.
    Was talking to the guy who owns it, hoping he would come to the PEI gun show, he's a really nice fellow.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken
