    Here's the first five Wolf Match Extra through the barrel of my TRR-SR yesterday at 50 yards on a 2 inch round target:

    Under 1/2 an inch.

    I've been getting similar results with CCI CB Shorts at 25 yards but they aren't that consistent at 50. My Mark II FV shoots the same with Wolf Match Extra.

    Sorry I missed this. I have a Burris Fulfield II 6-20 x 50 on it. Overkill, but I had it laying around.

    The TRR-SR is still shooting well. Works great suppressed too. ;)

    That is still some scattered placement.You need another brand of ammo. One hole groups are what you want,not one inch all around the target.
    Most better 22lrs should be able to group as PBinWA's photo shows.

    It took me eight years to get my wife to pull the trigger on a rifle. But we were visiting Vegas last week and had the rifle line to ourselves at the CCSP probably due to the cold weather. She put 15 rounds into a bit under 2 inches with CCI std velocity. She asked if it was ok and I told her it was friggin awesome shooting for a beginner.

    My wife is extra sensitive to recoil and noise, but the combination of 22lr subsonic, a silencer and ear muffs made the difference.

    Man, this is 100yd! Cut him some slack! 36 to 40gr boolits at transonic speeds! :) Yes, with match ammo he should get tighter groups, but, heck! I think this demonstrates the rifle's capabilities quite clearly. Got my attention.

    Give my wife 100 rounds and she will make a 2 inch one hole group at 100 yards with her plinking ammo. :)
