Having just purchased a Anschutz 1515-1516 .22 WMR. I am struggling to get acceptable groups. When I bought this rifle it had open sights. I had the barrel cut down to 18 in and target crowned, I then fitted a good quailty scope (Very carefully) and set the action screws to 25in/lbs. With various brands of bullet,the best I can get are groups over 2 MOA at fifty metres. When I look at a target it looks more like I have used a four-ten!!. The barrel is not free floating, should I do this?
I know that the .22wmr is not a target rifle but is MOA achieveable? r am I wasting my time? With my Finnfire P94s I can easily shoot sub MOA. Any advise would be very helpful.
