That looks like a fun gun to shoot. Never owned a .22-250 but thought about it a lot.
Actually enjoyed casting bullets with a guy who let me shoot his .45 1911 that had been tricked up for competition.

You still have a really steady hand.

C'mon! You're supposed to lie through your teeth and tell me you were standing.
At the very least, your firearm is shooting well with the loads you feed it.

Right handed are we? I Notice the grouping to the left. Maybe a little flinch going on? My groups end up in the same spot due to yep the old high and to the left flinch when the bang happens. How far were you from your target?

What is the ULTIMATE RESULT of hitting the bullseye?

A blind bull!

Fig have you tried the opposite approach. Instead of adjusting to the right and down,align the cross hairs on the center of your grouping. Of course you would have to set up a new target and start from scratch.

Group size is what matters. You can always shift the sights to move the group.
Shotguns, you carve the stock from the pattern board group.

I've used both methods...

This pertickyoulier scope... has 1/4"  adjustment @ 100 yds....

 

The target is actually for a .177 pellet gun at 25'

Mebee 2 clicks in both directions.. ;0)

I bought this rifle...buggered...
Someone tried to drill n tap fer a scope mount..
N actually drilled right into the chamber... :0/..

So.. I got it cheap...
Repaired the chamber..
N then cut it to .. 22-250...

Best I can get with a 55 grain jacketed bullet is 3400 fps..
I get primer cratering dew to a sloppy firing pin fit...

But that is just fine by me if it shoots strait.. ;0)

As beautifully crafted as a pocket watch, precision ammo and firearms are works of art. Your target reminds me of the Jimmy Steward movie, Winchester 73.

There is no flinching with a 3/4 inch group. That's a good shooter and a good rifle.

I once did some reloads for a .45 Ruger Blackhawk.
A writer, Ross Seyfried, came up with the idea of using 300gr hardcast bullets, after some kind of incident, with a Cape Buffalo. Those were hot loads, and I think at the time, a Ruger Blackhawk was the only handgun that had a strong enough frame that could safely shoot loads that hot.
I was impressed with the story, so I purchased a .45 Ruger Blackhawk.
I ordered a large quantity of the bullets he wrote about, and my brother and I made some reloads like Seyfried described.
Recoil was very heavy, much more than a .44 Mag.
But the terminal ballistics was incredible.
We tested it with wet newspaper, tied together in long bundles. Don't remember how long, but it was long. Never recovered a bullet. They penetrated the length of the bundle.
I recall shooting it a lot. Once shot a large wild hog, broadside. The hog then charged me, or accidentally simply ran in my direction.
I shot it though, stopping it about 30 feet from where I was at.
The 300gr bullet definitely did it's job.

That was back in 1992. Had 2 daughters and one on the way. Now they are grown and the oldest is about the same age I was.
I'm a grandpa now. 8 grandkids and one on the way. I look forward to deer season every single day. Took the oldest grandson hunting last year.

Still have the Blackhawk but I have not shot it in years. Next time I do shoot it, just going to use factory ammo. I'd be an old man sitting in the Drs waiting room the next day, if I tried those monster stopping reloads again.

Leslie, I loved reading Seyfried's articles back in the day. He changed the concept of what could be done with a gun small enough to wear on your belt. But I did not share his love of recoil and had no desire for nerve damage to my hand, so I was just an armchair admirer.

Seyfried was good !

I enjoyed Jeff Cooper's writing as well, I would sometimes laugh at some of his stuff.
I believe he once quoted someone from a time previous to his, just to give an idea of how some of his old-timer's were, "there's not many problems a man can't fix, with $700 and a 30-06."
I mean, it rhymes and everything. I'll bet you will always remember that quote. It is out there !
Maybe that's how things were at one time.

Grouping like that isn't resulting from a flinch, someone just needs to adjust his scope a little I'd bet.

Nice shooting Tex

You should remedy that Brian, lovely calibre to shoot - nice and flat too.  My first centrefire rifle was a 22-250 but when I got into deer hunting I weighed it in as it's not a legal round for all of the species of deer in the UK.  I wish I'd kept hold of it.

I have a Remington 700BDL in .30-'06. Widest range of factory ammo in North America.
Tried from 150gr up to 220gr. Rem factory 165 were the best.

I don't live where there's small game at long range like back on the Cdn prairies.
Visibility in the forest understorey here might be 6 feet in some places!
Quite the temperate jungle. From the road, you can't see into the forest.

In the front and out the rear?

So, you literally DID rip him a new one.
