MY stock 10-22 with 4X Leupold will shoot TEN SHOT at 50 yards with most ammo into about 3 inches. For some crazy reason CCI stingers and Wolf Match will go into 2 inches.

I can get 3/4 -1 inch groups with Eley Tenex, and RWS R-50. Unforyunately, those Eley and RWS rounds cost 5-6 times as much S NORMAL AMMO.

I have come to accept that it's a 50 yard max rifle, and I bought Stingers by the case of 5000 when they were available and cheap.

Most of my other .22s do as well with Remington "Golden Bullet" ammo as anything else other than the high dollar stuff.

Sorry about that, used Savage Mark II at 25 yards indoor. No one is ever at the range have the place to myself that's why I go two to three times a week!

I have had good luck using foam rubber in the forestock. The foam rubber seems to tighten the 10/22 up. You might not notice a difference at 25 yards but you might at 50 yards.

I got very lucky with my latest 10/22,, it is the stainless, fiber stocked version. It shot well for me with iron sights right out of the box, and after being scoped, I was very surprised how well it shoots,,, not quite as well as my Marlin 39,, but close. My wood stocked ones as stated before, did require some tinkering and ammo trials,, mine favors Winchesters and CCI's.

the above ammo posts are right on, but being relatively new tends to have me thinking that your shooting position and fundamentals may not be tuned yet for range and bench shooting. it takes training and practice.

did you disassemble and clean the rifle before going out the first time? seriously, break the rifle down and wipe down all surfaces and lightly oil then re-assemble. no need to pull the barrel but double check the barrel screw for tightness. you never know if the rifle may have manufacturing debris inside it.

so to summarize, double check your fundamentals, double check the cleanliness of the rifle, verify no loose hardware, get above average ammunition and not any bulk (loose) pack ammunition. get the ones that are in trays for this test.
Start with 100 rds from the same package, run up to 50 rds to warm up the rifle then shoot 3-5 shot groups from a good supported firing position

suggestion.... ask the range if they have a sled for rifles. basically it's a heavy rack that you fasten your rifle in to. then you shoot your groups. lots of ranges have them, some loan them out for free. that depends on the range that you are going to. it will take you out of the equation and indicate what the rifle can accomplish.

lastly, once you have finished the above with one batch of ammunition then, try another brand/type. by this time you should get a feel for what performs in the tighter groups for your particular rifle.

hope some of this helps

Both of my 10/22s were very accurate out of the box up to about 60 yds, then the accuracy drops off due to me more than the gun. That is using winchester ammunition.
