I do have a box of winchester 333 bulk I will try out, and I was probably firing every 30 seconds but it was cold out so that could have been the problem I'm in Ohio. I also adjusted the trigger last night to make it even lighter so I will test that out soon to see how it goes. And the 1inch groups with the 795 were during the summer time and I got the xt-22 this Christmas so weather could be a factor. I will try all of the ideas posted next time its nice out and I will post the results.

Often times the ammo that one rifle likes is not what other rifles like. Trying different ammo often will fix that problem.

Hi I bought me the marlin xt 22 lr with the heavy barrel
And it shoots and groups like a dream , and I'm shooting the federal
Bulk packs , I can easily get a group of half a inch at 50 yards
,, unless its the heavy barrel that makes such a difference vs the normal one ,,.

The rifle might just need a little break in time, put a few hundred rounds through it and it should settle down. I have a Marlin 795 that shot pretty bad brand new, but after 200 rounds down range the accuracy got much better. Every rifle is different and needs to be tweaked in it's own special way.

I'm with underdog on this one. Both me and my girlfriend have both been able to hit a gopher sized target out to around 100 yards or so with her XT-22. That's been done over and over on different days.

Default Xt-22

I had one for about 6 months, I tried a lot of different things and I could not get it to shoot very well, it would shoot 5 tight shots then a flyer for 2 or 3 that were about 2" out, was not happy, I love bolts with tube feeds, so I took my 10/22 and put one of those Vourqeest? hammer and release kits in it, WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!, now my 10/22 trigger is so light that my groups have tightened up really nice, it is in my gun collection now and the XT-22 is gone!

Maybe a 2 inch group is the best you can shoot at 50 yards. It's nothing to hang your head down about. Most shooters can't shoot a 2" group at 50 yards without a bipod or sandbag.
