Well got to the range today. I was shooting the 22-250 Hornady Custom series 60g soft points. I don't know if I was unconcious while doing this or what was going on. But all in all it was a very repeatable round. Accuracy was the best I have seen with factory ammo of any kind. After the barrel warmed up 30 shots or so into it. The groups started to open up a bit, either beacause I was having too much fun or because the gun was warm. Either way I am pleased.
This is at 200 yards, slight breeze, drizzle, off sandbags.
Is this acceptable or can it be better?

you can probably do a ton better with a lot of trigger time, at least it works for me.

keep shooting till you never loose sight of target even when firing, when I shoot my .46-65 Shiloh Sharps after the smoke clears I am still looking at target

That is acceptable but you can always be better. Just keep shooting.

Well alot has to do with me too. Not having something to sit on while shooting from a bench is kind of a pain. I really need to start handloading instead of fooling with factory ammo. But for me, this is a step in the right direction! I was tickled to see this group with factory ammo today.

I have not tried any 55g bullets through it yet. Just some V-Max 50's and these soft point 60's. Of the two, the 60's are more accurate. I need to find some good 55's and see what those do I suppose.
