    For reference, CCI SV does MOA or a little less in the same rifle, which is really pretty respectable.

    Cci standard is usually over an inches 50 in both of my precision .22's. green tag is not any better.

    I did figure out how to get fairly respectable groups with standard velocity. Just shoot 50 rounds of quality match ammo (lapua, eley, etc) and the next 5 rounds or so of standard velocity will shoot substantially better.

    Over the holiday I actually tore this whole gun down (Nylon 66 Mohawk C10).

    What a lot of pieces!

    Got this gun out of a great uncle's estate, he was a Trapper and used to carry it with him on trapping runs.

    Took apart everything and cleaned meticulously. Steel-wooled the rust off all the metal parts. Very light oil on all the metal pieces, careful not to do too much. I read a lot about not oiling these guns, they are designed to not need oiling.

    Had to watch some YouTube videos to get it back together but it's working great now.

    I just shot 40 rounds through it stacking them in tight on top of each other on top of the bull at 25 yd shooting off a bench.

    I like it a lot! Sweet little gun!



    Thank you for your time.
