Default How accurate COULD a Ruger 10/22 be?

Go here and scroll down to the third post.
Post your July 25 yd. RFBR 10 Shot Match Scores here... - RimfireCentral.com Forums

m\Midwest Swiss has been shooting in the RFC On-Line-Matches for several years. Those two scores of his shot on the 10 bull USBR target are about as good as any I have seen using a 10/22 with a 9 power scope. Of course the 10/22 can't lay claim to those scores alone. The guy doing the steering had a big part of where those holes printed on the paper too.

If you would like to try that 10 bull USBR target, go here:
10 Bull Benchrest Scope Sight Rookie matches - 25 & 50 yd (post scores here) - RimfireCentral.com Forums
You can print out the target in black or green from the 2nd or 3rd Sticky.
The 4th sticky shows you how to score the USBR target.

Wan'a see how your 10/22 does compared to the 10/22 that belongs to Midwest Swiss?

Download the target . . . and DO IT.

I had to invest a few bucks and labor to achieve the accuracy stated in a couple of posts. I do not question the voracity of your statements but I must say that you have fired some rare 10-22s. The l'il rifle is able, on an average, to get around 1 1/2"-2" @ 50 yards.

To achieve this accuracy with the usually atrocious trigger of a 10-22 is good shooting with some concentration. Ammunition definitely plays an important role in the accuracy game. I find the regular velocity CCI Mini Mag and my built up 10-22 gets along very well. 'Course, the 8X32X44 helps a lot.
