There's no "you should get this" answer since there's other variables involved. It's not just "hey, put on a bull bbl and fancy trigger" and expect a match rifle.

Just from what's provided though, the Stinger isn't made to be a long range target cartridge. Think..there's a reason the good barrels have a Bentz or better chamber which doesn't allows them.
Hate to say it but the BC bbls, especially earlier ones, are not known for outstanding performance so expecting much out past 100yds is kinda setting a somewhat unrealistic expectation.

Can't see 150 yards anymore...even with my 2-7 Leupold!

I am not sure the 22LR cartridge is a 150 yard affair.......Think falling rainbow here.

Let us know how it goes!

About 1 1/2 times larger group than you get at 100 yards.
Or about 3 times the size of a 50 yard group.
Or about 6 times the size of a 25 yard group.

Assuming no wind and a machine rest that allows no movement of the gun.

The man crystalized my very thoughts!

I shoot both. Have I every pulled one from out my backside with a 1022 @ 150yds? Yeah! Could I do it repeatedly? Nope! That's why they make .22 Mags, .223,and 22-250.

IMHO 150 yards is more like .17 HMR range... Think bolt action, as well.

Still, MUCH le$$ expen$ive ammo than a 22-250!!!

Cheers!

A minute of angle is 1.6 inches at 150 yards and "minute of angle" centerfire rifles are considered to be pretty accurate. Given all of the variables in .22 LR ammunition, I'd think that 3 minutes of angle (4.8 inches at 150 yards) would be pretty darn good with non-match ammunition, but I don't have the experience to say that for certain.

It can be done - the .22 LR Stinger sighted at 150 yards will have a mid-range trajectory of 6.6 inches (at about 90 yards) and will arrive at the 150 yard mark in 0.32 seconds with a velocity of 945 fps and 62 ft-lbf of energy. It will be 6.6 inches below line of sight at 175 yards.
