home Forums – The GUN Forum Firearms Rifles Sighting in my first practice .22 on a very windy day (only at 30 yards), and got the weirdest 5 round group I’ve ever seen. I know 30 yards isn’t long, but I was excited to try the rifle with an old weaver scope my dad had sitting around. Need to find a decent scope for 200 yard .22 shooting.

    They are all centered and at 30 yards, so I don’t think the wind was an issue. I’d shoot some 10 round groups just to get more data. May want to check and make sure your scope is mounted properly, especially if the 3 fliers were your last rounds.
