    .22 hv rounds

    Anybody shooting high velocity rimfire rounds with decent accuracy I remember trying them years ago in my old anshutz and acurracy was terrible ... The rifle I have at min is a cz 452 I'd be interested to know if anybody's getting decent accuracy from a hv rpund in this rifle before buying some ,

    I have a match 54 with a scope on it. At 50 yards it groups half inch with win subs but put general cheap hv through it and it's awful. Eley HV is actually pretty good by the standard of the competition but I'm lucky is I can get sub inch with it.

    I sometimes use eley hv in my 452. Usually good for head shooting 100 - 140 meters.

    I have never found HV to be very good on accuracy. The super HVs like Stinger and Yellow Jacket were worse than 'normal' HV.

    RWS high velocity is brilliant in my CZ, genuine 1" groups at 100 yards.

    Norman CCI Stinger and Remington Hornet have always been unbelievably bad in all .22 rifles that I have tried them in.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Give CCI segmented a try around 1100 fps pretty quick, really accurate in my old 452 and the quad, they are all I use now. Sub .50 of an inch at 60 yds in the quad.

    Generally .22lr rifles are very fussy on ammunition and you might have to just take a few different boxes of 50 and try to you find one that your barrel likes.

    I prefer, conditions allowing, to take a slightly longer shot with a subsonic brand that I've tested and found accurate at a given range rather than have maybe 350fps more terminal velocity and a higher chance of hitting outside the intended kill zone.

    Know your round and where to aim for different distances, use a rangefinder if you do want to reach out further but most of all, know your limitations.

    (My apologies for sounding like a grumpy headmaster-I am genuinely offering advice not criticism)
