IMO they arent good enough for pics because I have a somewhat high standard in 100yd accuracy. 3/4" is the most I'll tolerate in any rifle I own. Anyway, the best group I got was about 1.5" with a 50gr NBT over 24.0 H335 in my 16" RRA. I guess for a black rifle 1.5" is pretty good but I know I can get better groups from this rifle.

I would try heavier bullets, my Dad's 22-250 would not shoot 50 gr bullets worth a flip, but it would shoot 55 gr bullets into tiny bughole groups.

Is it a 1/9 twist or a 1/7? the smk's may not stabilize very well from a 1/9.
