Far and away your biggest 'modification' is going to be the ammunition you use. I've got a Mk II too and often put rounds through one hole at 50y BR with Mini Mags . At 100y, not so much. I've gotten 1.5" groups at 100y BR with Mini Mags, but not with any regularity. Most are over 2". My groups fall apart at around 70y.

They didn't have any sub sonic ammo at my local & chain shops, and even the Stingers go transsonic over 50y, so I going to mail order something.

I just put a Mueller 8-32x44 scope on it because the dime sized dots I shoot at were covered up by the previous scope's BDC dots. Side benefit, don't really need the spotting scope.

Here's a link to 22lr ammo results at 50, 75 & 100 yards. It shows what's possible with a high end rifle with just the brand of ammo as the variable.

As far as modifications to the rifle itself, I'd go to a competition and talk to some people, perhaps the 'winners', and see what they found made the biggest differences.

Thanks for this. I was unaware of their website and checked it out.

Here's the specific link to their rimfire page. http://www.odcmp.com/Competitions/Rimfire.htm

Here's a link to their 52 page Rimfire Sporter Competition Book download. http://www.odcmp.com/Comm/Rimfire.pdf

It looks like it has LOTS of general & 22lr marksmanship information.

savageshooter1997, I appreciate your quest for friendly competition. Check around at your local range and you'll find some matches to shoot in. I shot in Smallbore silhouette matches for years and what started out as fun quickly soured. I started out with a Rem 513T. My very first match, I won my class. The regulars cried, pissed and moaned. About the stock, the weight, the scope mounts, the wind, the sun. I'm far from the best shot ever and just wanted to have fun. After years of putting up with it, I just stopped going.

If your gun can shoot the 1 hole groups you might stand a chance in the hunter class. Having the right equipment is what structured matches are all about in my opinion. Have fun.

As far as putting a bipod and a sling on, I found a good bipod for mine that had a built in swivel for a sling. It wasn't very expensive, I just can't remember where I got it from or what brand it is. I would have to guess that there are probably several bipods out there that will already have the swivel like you want so you won't have to drill through your stock

Thats where i got my experience with a bipod! Me and my cousin made a cheezy "Sniper hide" on my granmas roof to guard her saud from the coons! It was so much fun!

Ill post pics if u dont see what im trying to say
