Default 22 High standard

I got a new to me Highstandard Victor Hamden CT in realy good condition. I cleaned the barrel realy well and took it to the range. I bagged it and started shooting to see where it shoots. The first 20 rnds grouped like a shot gun , could have been me but after the fist 20 rnds the goups tightened up. I have had this happen with other 22s right after cleaning.
Why is this with 22s? they dont seem to like a clean barrel. or is it that I'm just settleling in to a more acurate mode of shooting after the first 20 or so shots?
This only realy seems aparent after a good cleaning though.
Thanks F.K.

I have heard others say the same thing about 22 but i have no idea what makes them do this.

You can take my gun's but you have to take the bullets first.

When I took my hunters safety class a very long time ago, my instructor was a competitive RF shooter. He told us not to clean the bbls on our .22 rifles more than once a year. Chamber, yes. Action, yes. Bbl, no.

I leave my .22's alone for the most part.

Weird. I clean all my guns the same 22's or not. Never had an accuracy problem from a clean barrel.

it's because the coatings the use for 22lr, or so goes my guess. Kinda like shooting Moly coated bullets.
