my 22 is a jc higgins (marlin 80) from the late 40's to early 50's. I am shooting wolf subsonic to get groups like that and a Simmons 22mag 3-9 scope. The reason I ask is because I am unsure of myself and I dont have another shooter around whom I have confidence. I have a sported Mauser 30-06 (FN) that I plan to try my abilities with at the 100 mark. I am currently shooting a rem 7600 30-06, my first shot is normally within the bull ring but after that the rifle heat walks so bad im not sure what im doing.
My point is that its very easy for me to blame the rifle (at any range) and blow mega bucks before it becomes evident that its me that cant shoot..
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
