At least I got one gun that can hit what I aim at :D Of coarse it won't happen next time cause I switched scope's.It now wears my Elite 4200 4-16x, it deserves a nice scope.The H&R has been Demoted :D It Ain't wearing nothing :D

That's too bad about the poor quality of your H&R and their refusal to fix it correctly. I think Mr. Marlin will like his new set of eyes. It's always nice to have good glass on anything. I can't tell you the years in my youth I fought that old Tasco on my .22-250. But hey I didn't know better. You better buy smaller DOT's now that you can hit them! :D

It's funny how the 20XTP's shoot low rightLow would be normal, but to right seems odd.I'm going to have to try CCI's 20 Game Points.It does.y like the 17 TNT's very well either.The Savage shot all the Ammo great.Thats O.K. though because the V-Max is the right Squirrel Medicine anyway :D

I've heard the Remington stuff shoots well in the Marlin's. I don't know why they all wouldn't, it's made in the same factory on the same machines. It may break in after a while too and do better with others. I don't understand the left or right point of impact change either. But both my Contender pistol and my Savage both do that too. :D

Hey Sterling,What a great set of groupings. I like the last group. Awesome! Like Shooter said, you either need to get smaller dots, or is this about the time you list it in the classifieds? :lol: db
