    You want to tune with your best lot, to do otherwise would be total frustration. with 200 rds. you should be able to find a tune, in which you can work with and fine tune.
    the ARA sighter is to give reference on the size of that group, shot with SKRM

    Jesse, I agree and share your standard for prone/bipod/rear bag. Off a bench, if the system is capable of 0.25”-0.5” groups routinely at 100 in ideal conditions, and will “follow the wind” appropriately, it is a delight, and a wonderful tool for learning the art. Seymour

    The competition card is based on an upscaled 50 Benchrest target set, but we shoot at 100 yards with 10 rounds to score. This was with RWS R50 for a SEB Neo machine rest.

    The other target shows 2x 5 shot groups at 100 yards (not meters as it states on the target). This was with Lapua Center-X, bipod, no rear bag.

    The biggest thing that makes a difference for my rig is controlling torque on the stock to action interface, and the damping if the surface the rifle rests on.

    I owned an Anschutz 64 sporter that was a reliable 1” shooter with its favorite ammo. Why oh why did I sell it???

    There are a few good threads talking about rimfire @ 100 yards over on the Snipers Hide in the rimfire section. I kinda manage one thread with a LOT of data on the subject called the 6X5, but there are a few others as well. I started a 5X10 thread but there wasn’t much interest in it, I guess there are not many people looking to shoot 50 consecutive rounds at 100 yards with a 22lr. I shot this target for that thread, 50 consecutive rounds including the cold bore (noted in the top left target), 5 groups of 10 rounds shot prone off a bipod and a TAB rear bag. It was shot by my Anschutz with a Benchmark barrel and Eley Match.


    Here is the set up I used to shoot this target. The wind was not too bad that day, and I was mostly able to stay on top of it. I am sure the rifle can do better with a proper rest and a good shooter, but I thought it may be an example of what I was talking about in my earlier post in this thread.

    I also compete, once sometimes twice a month in Smallbore F Class matches using the required A-50/51 and A-33 metric targets and routinely score 1190+ with an X count > 60!

    Your Tikka T1X is up to the task. On occasion I use Lapua Polar Biathlon ammo in mine for more serious competition work. With consistent forward pressure to drive the gun, It'll do 1" or better consistently. I've found that the loading is extremely important due to the amount of time it takes for a 22lr bullet to leave the barrel. You can free recoil a HP because the dwell time in the barrel is so low. On the other hand, I believe that the recoil begins to act on the rifle before the 22lr bullet exits the barrel. If you have a good lot of good ammo and control the rifle properly, I'm sure that Tikka will deliver.
