After 50 plus years of sending .22's down range, I'm wondering if I missed something!
John I compete 22lr prone and have sorted by weight, this can make less expensive ammo shoot much better ( reduces flyers). As you go up in quality of the ammo the % gain goes down. Currently shoot Eley ESP black box and Lapua with the right lot # without sorting can keep a 1/2 inch group at 100yds. Have fun in the search for the right lot # for your rifle.
