IIRC a dime is about 7/8" and it looks like your group is a little larger than the dime center to center. Call it an even inch.joshheat25":2y27urt0 said:Just wondering how accurate is your 10/22 I went to the range and shot a group of 5 slightly larger than a dime from 50 yards. my gun is stock other than a scope and buttstock.
50 yards off bench

I've never shot any of that so can't comment on its accuracy, but 1" at 50 yards with almost ANY ammo is pretty darn good from a stock 10/22. You done good. :wink:joshheat25":snd8q7rx said:

Many have tried one or both of those things with great results. Others, not so much. I tried it with both of mine. Neither showed much difference with the barrel band removed. When free-floated, one shot a little better and the other measurably worse. The "worse" one went back to the factory-type bedding with band and the other one remained floated. But I'm planning to replace the stock on the floated one soon and I'm not going to bother re-floating it, as the difference was so small; it's not worth the effort.Chief 101":3mgcvohs said:How do I make a stock carbine shoot better. Can I remove the barrel band and freefloat the stock bbl? Has anybody tried that?
