I just find it hard to believe. Even with a capable rifle, a 9 power scope would make shooting that sized group on a regular basis difficult IMO. Now add bulk ammo and no rest to the equation, and it seems even more unlikely. I know I couldn't do it, on a regular basis that is.

Show a video starting with you standing at an fresh target followed by you walking back to the bench to shoot and then you walking back to the target to show the group all in one continuous take and I'll be the first to apologize and bow to your exceptional marksmanship.
You're not the first one that's been skeptical. I've showed other folks targets before and they didn't believe it either. I figured I would get it on video this time and now I'm gonna have to do it again.

I don't have a bit of problem doing another video. My wife told me whenever I was fixing to do this last one that we should have started it from the stapling of the target. Now she has one more thing to tell me "see, I told you so!" I'll get back down there again this upcoming Saturday (weather permiting) and get another video posted. This rifle will do it all day long. It would be a lot easier with a trigger job though.

The next video, I'll start by putting the target up, then walking back to the table, loading the ammo out of a brand new brick of 555 and then lettin' her rip. Then we will walk back down to the target and show the results all in one take. That way there will be no doubt.

Thanks Will. I'm gonna get another video up at the end of the week, but I'm gonna do it with the same setup to show it wasn't staged.

I'm glad you didn't get offended. My comment wasn't intended to do so. I'm looking forward to seeing the next video...I'm sure it will prove that not only is your rifle a heck of a shooter but that there's plenty of guys out there that can outshoot me easily...not to say I can't shoot one inch groups at 50 yards, in fact I can shoot half that size on a regular basis...however my rifle is a complete KIDD 10/22 with 25 power scope(that makes it just a bit easier)

I have a standard 10/22 with only a trigger job I did to get the pull down to 3lbs. It will sandbag at 100 yards using Winchester 40gr Hyperspeed ammo, on a windless day, into a 2 inch group all day long.

You can do a lot to smooth out the trigger by stoning the sear, trigger sides and shortening the trigger return spring. Before you start be sure you are capable of doing this kind of work.
I also have this model rifle but it doesn't shoot that well but still get 1- 1 1/2 inch groups at 50.
You might want to go to; rimfirecentral.com
They have a lot of info on improving trigge s with out spending a lot of cash.
I would notice the position of the barrel screw before you take it out so you can re-torque it to the same position after take down. Keep using the same ammo as it looks like your rifle really likes it.

Nah, I wasn't offended. I can see where someone else might have gotten offended, but I get that all the time when I tell someone (or in this case show 'em) what my stock 10/22 will do. I'm used to it. I don't mind doing another video at all. It's a challenge and it's pretty fun to boot!

I know there probably is some folks that would try to fool somebody by shooting a target and then setting it up to make it look like he or she shot it at a longer distance, but I'm not gonna waste my time trying to pull the wool over someone's eyes. That's one thing about me, if I tell you or show you something, you can take it to the bank.

I've done the tricks (pressure bedding, headspacing the bolt, recrowning, trigger job, ect) to my WWS K10/22 22" and I routinely get 1" 50yard groups. The best group I've ever gotten was with Wolf MT, a .67" group.

That's the one! Nice choice. Now, see what kind of groups you can get out of it.

Very nice group.
I have one of those exact models on order.
Can't wait to see if it's equally accurate.

Now I want one. I am also looking for a SS International and ordered a SS Carbine. Do they make a SS Charger? Look for a new Charger post and address that issue there.
