Was strong gusts of wind , hoping to get better results with a better scope and some calm weather, but all in all I’m definitely not disappointed.

They are good fun. I have one too. Like a lot of .22s its picky on ammo. Very varied results depending on choice. Good results for a brand new rifle. What ammo did you try?

Just cci standard for now mate,they seemed to drop of dramatically after that 75 metre mark tho. Have you had any luck with hyperverlociry ammo if so what was best?

CCI mini mags went alright, also Remington bulk ammo did well for the cost. Didn’t like Eley at all, or Highland.

I’ll go to the gun shop today n get a few types to try this arvo.
I’ve got mini mag at home but they didn’t impress me at all through my other 22’s not the accuracy tho they just seem to have no punch at all not sure if I got a dud batch or what? A lot of people like them!

Try some Eley Standard in it…Its the base of the Eley range …std. velocity should carry a bit further too!

My Ruger did pretty well with CCI standard. Sk rifle match and Eley subsonic HP were the best in mine. I did try Eley standard. But it was about the same as the CCI. I haven’t really check Ammo prices recently. I know most of it has gone. I did see CCI standard for $540 per 5000. At my my local. So I assume that’s probably the cheapest if your prepared to buy in bulk.
