Silencers and accuracy.

Went to the range today after was seemed ot have been ages.

Only the 50m range was free so I settled down to shoot the CZ 452.

I prefer to shoot with my silencer on (it is made by the club owner). Two reasons: kinder on the ears and when we have club competitions, they usually shoot with silencers.

So this time:
Snowing, chilly, (-1, -2 Celsius), very mild breeze. I put a target up, had some shots. Nothing. No hits on a 100 yard target sheet. Removed the slincer and I went to 1.5 to 2 MOA groups almost bang on my point of aim (no, I am not very good with a rifle yet...)

However, about 5 weeks ago, I was on the 100 yard range and I was also using the silencer. That time there was no discernable affect on accuracy.

Both times the silencer was screwed on correctly, and as far as I could tell, the disassembly cap was also screwed in properly. It has also worked perfectly well on my MkIII

So, what went wrong this time?
You cannot wake someone who is pretending to sleep. Stop pretending. Wake up.
