Welcome aboard Johnny85. Enjoy shooting and learning about the art of the rifle with that 10/22. Shooting is a skill that must be attained through practice, and now you have the tools. The Lead Sled is intended to reduce the recoil perceived by the shooter of hard-kicking rifles. It does this by increasing the rifle's weight artificially by putting it into a cradle attached to a tray carrying bags of shot. The .22lr round generates almost no recoil at all so extra weight isn't needed. Was the Bushnell 3x9 from a blister-pack? Those are their cheapest promotional line and leave much to be desired. The ones in a box (closer to $100.00) have always worked well for me. It's all about breathing, trigger control, and how you hold the rifle. Clean the bore often, keep the action lubed, and try various good ammo. Watching the groups shrink on the target every range trip can be very satisfying.

As stated before, check the scope, also, I'm not trying to talk down, but make sure you know how to use the scope-paralax, etc. I'm just not too sure if this is your first gun, etc. My aunt is a dead on shot, but only after I taught her how to use the scope, trigger pull, etc. She had never shot a rifle before, everything else but a rifle, haha. Parallax on a cheaper scope can kill your accuracy quick!! I use a cheap Barska on mine, bUT I keep that in mind when shooting.

My 10/22 loves Aguila Elley primed 22lr. It's stinky and dirty, but it's the best shooting in mine. Some use CCI, winchester, etc. It's all up to the gun. Hypersonic sucked, haha. They are finicky lil animals

Oh, and also, just a tip, what sort of target are you using? When I first started I was ok, but on larger targets, like the silhouette targets, I was at about 3 inch groups, using my heavy varmint 223 Winchester 70, now I get sub MOA with same gun). An older gentleman gave me a sharpie, taught me to turn around the large targets and fill in about a 1 inch square box, I tightened up my groups almost instantly. If you aim at a large target, you get large groups, if you shoot at a tight target, you'll get tight groups. Again, just don't know how experienced you are. And could be simple as this.
