    Thanks, schutzen. I took the rifle to the range today and could not repeat that first tight group. I looked at the fore-end but didn't have anything to shim it with at the range. I was focusing on my 512 with suppressor for rabbit hunting. I could only get it to group with round nose Geco Rifle ammo. And it grouped! I'll try shimming both rifles and see how that works out. I'll probably have a look at the 511 too sometime.

    hard plastic shims cut from 35mm film containers work well because it does not compress when under tension -

    "Film"? What is this "film"?

    I imagine if film containers are lacking, a few strips cut from a fired shotgun shell would serve. 20-28 gauge, the radius would even be close.
    WWJMBD?

    Is the mightiness of the pen still relevant after we roll the writing paper into cartridges for a Sharps?

    I just happen to have one of those 'film' containers.

    I took the 510 to the range again. I managed one or two reasonable groups. Then I tried out the Fiocchi Z's in it. After that, the groups just opened up so I've scrubbed the bore and will try again next session. I actually put on the scope to make sure it wasn't my aiming. Apparently not.

    make sure that all play is removed from barrel at front of stock + there is upward tension on barrel - yes they are very ammo sensitive - i have several that achieve better accuracy with cheap bulk ammo then with expensive match grade - when switching ammo always clean barrel + fire 9 or 10 fouling shots before testing for accuracy - any rimfire ammo shortage problems there ?

    No 22 ammo shortages. Shortages of powder though.

    I rescued my 510 from the safe, finally. I'll keep it in the shop within easy reach. Just shooting from the bench bagless let me keep most of my shots on a 2" square at 40 yards.
    A better shot would tighten that group up, but hey, I'm having fun.

    Fun is what it's all about. I was thinking about what to do with my 511. Originally, it was intended for my son but he is no longer with us so more recently I thought of using it as an open sight rifle - the 510 has passed it's open sight days. I've come to realize that older eyes don't work quite as well as they did when they were new. So, the idea is to see (excuse the pun) what I can do with open sights. So that's what I am going to do. Thinking back, I realize too, that those tiny pebbles I could hit with an open sighted 512 were actually closer than I thought. But I was impressed with it. I also wonder about the ammo I had available to me (cheap ammo, that is). I'm thinking it was actually pretty good stuff. Well, I'm hoping to get the range on Sunday with my 510 and maybe I'll take the 511 too. It's been a while.
