I don't want to start a new thread so apologies if this is not in the right place.

FYI I've been through 320/550 rounds of Winchester 550 without a single mechanical malfunction. Granted all rounds don't shoot the same but my factory new 10/22 has no prolems with them. On a couple of threads this is listed as the WORST ammuntitioin but for me so far so good.
cheers

I've also had great performance from them. I will buy them if I see them. I will also use Remington Golden Bullets and Federal bulk without any problem. Glad to hear yours is doing well!

I'm not sure what all was done to the newest (to me) one I picked up, but I had it out last weekend, and she was putting 5 shot groups all touching at 50yds. I know she has had some barrel work, but it is a stock barrel, it has a timney trigger, the bolt looks untouched (but I will be sending it out), and it wears a standard carbine stock and barrel band. I was impressed....this one is a keeper for sure.

I can tell the chamber has been modded since it won't extract federal bulk very well, but the fiocchi I had with me worked well and was responsible for the great groups. Just wait til I get it tuned and dialed in...hehehehe.

Oh, it has a winchester 3-9 scope on it as well.
What kind of mod's can you do to a stock barrel for accuracy? That's about the only part I haven't modified on my wife's. W/all stock parts I: polished all a mating surfaces; lightened hammer & trigger springs; shortened the sear; can't remember what else, I've had it apart so many times. I thought if I could tighten the gap between the bullet & the rifling may improve accuracy. I'm not sure as to the best way to do it, or if it will help.

Yes the factory bolt and barrel both can be made a lot better but not a diy project...

They "re-chamber" the factory barrel for tighter fit and also precision grind the bolt of optimal head-spacing...the factory makes them a tad sloppy for two reasons...one is tighter tolerances drive costs way up...the way machinist achieve tight tolerances is by slowing down machines...tedious inspections...secondary and sometimes a third attempt to get tight...additionally...precision cut chambers and head spaces make the gun more ammo picky...not what you want for a low cost semi auto 22 made for general purpose and not competition type accuracy...

Another diy project that may or may not yield results is Bedding...trial and error...

Finding the right ammo the shoots best groups in your particular gun helps a lot...

Try CCI Mini Mags in HV and CCI SV and probably best overall for accuracy vs cost in most 1022s is Wolf MT...

Q bolt and barrel service can accurize your factory parts...

Brimstone Gunsmithing can do a fabulous job on your factory trigger group for $35...

If you cover that cap with a cross hair you cannot see it its too small so if you cannot see it squeeze. First two shots were low one click and the next three fell right in. Father and Brother almost fell over. Kid brother is pissed as his 10-22 wont do this.
