      .22 LR Accuracy

      Has anyone experienced more flyers or larger groups with a new batch of go-to ammo? My standard for the cheap Marlin is a .30 cal hole at 50yds now struggle to get a "dime". Thinking of running a brush and patch through the barrel (once--nylon brush--Micro Groove rifling) but don't want to worsen the situation.

      Thoughts?

      Uncle Steve defines minnows as any small fish racing around to relax.

      You can't build a wall high enough to stop a vaccine.

      --the significance of the passage of time? RIGHT? So when you think about it; there is great significance in the passage of time and there's SUCH great significance in the passage of time

      Imagine, if you will, a world where every tweet and meme must be fact checked, but not a ballot.

      LB sounds like fun to me. My hunting buddy is a swat sniper. Bow hunting we both had our custom 308 Wins in camp. I have more apples than I know what to do with so we impaled apples on the teeth of an old dump rake in the vacant yard we camped in. There was an old white refrigerator standing behind the rake and flies were crawling on it. As we shot apples we were spraying the old fridge with apple sauce. The fridge was setting at 103 yards and although flies are not exactly big game they were more than the two of us could pass up. We burned up a couple dozen rounds each in the next hour. Yes some flies died. We took turns shooting and spotting. On 60X it was fly one moment and hole the next. Sometimes a leg or two remained behind. We tried repeating it the following year, but their was either no flies or they didn't like my apples.

      I reset the trigger on that rifle yesterday. I didn't think it a good idea walking with a rifle with an 11 ounce trigger. It tool me two hours to get it like I liked it which was smooth at 2 lb 12 Oz. It had a little rough spot when I increased the sear engagement so I had to cut a very narrow strip od 2000 grit Emory to slide through the small trigger hole and pull out as the bolt drop put slight pressure on the sear. After a dozen passes the little gritty spot was gone.

      I broke out my marlin 22 auto tube feed, hadn't had it out in a long long time, 17 shots without reloading pure death on squirrels during squirrel season of course.

      Try a Bug Asault. The grandkids love them. A teaspoon of salt gives dozens of shots. Wasps are tough you have to be about 18 inches from the. They don't like those salt grains penetrating them.

      Yes the cheap price ammo is bad need to find match or better grade good luck. Thank god I stocked up many years ago, brother in law taught shooting class he could buy ammo for all the guns for target practice and competition and I have a shit load, for many calibers.

      I have some match stored away. In the past CCI standard grouped just as well in the same POI. What's your opinion of a bore brushing?

      I have been shooting lots of 22lr CCI standard velocity I like it and it groups nicely. For the price this is a great ammo.
      Clean the gun if the groups are not any better I will buy all the standard velocity you have.
