Confused


I typically shoot tighter groups with my 9mm or 45 ACP than I do with my cheap .22lr plinking ammo. So I worry less about 22lr groups and more about my centerfire groups. Does that explain it better?

Are you shooting this at 3 yards? At a pretty large target? I can't for the life of me imagine ammo is an issue at that distance. But I'm willing to be educated as I don't normally shoot at that range.

If you mean me, I shoot at 7-15 yards.
