I got a tactical solutions barrel for my 10/22 afew years ago and when i got the barrel it wood shoot one hole groups at 50 . whenever it gets dirty the groups wood open up then i wood clean it and it wood go back to normal . well now no matter how i clean it i still cant get better than a 3 inch group at about 30 yards on a good day. any ideas on what wrong?

My experience with 22s seem to be just the opposite .. I need to put 50+ down the bore after cleaning to get the best groups ... seems like all I have ever owned performed like this ... try putting some down the tube and then see what she will do ...

Never actually seen a 22lr barrel "wear out" using normal lead bullets -- lead is not ruff on a barrel .. a lot softer than copper jackets ... While it will probably happen in time and use, I would bet that you would never put enough rounds through it to "wear it out" ...

Maybe there are different thoughts for other out there ...

Did you change ammo?

as the barrel aged i have had to switch brands . i shoot the brick ammo from walmart and i used to work fine . my first 22 was a marlin papoose and i shoot the barrel to as smooth as a shotgun barrel.

Guess I would have lost that bet!!!!!!! :lol:

A brick a week would probably do it over time!!

The throat will wear after many hundred thousand rounds. What you do is cut off the back of the barrel and re-chamber.

Tactical Solutions barrels are made of aluminum, correct? Not sure if that has something to do with it, but it is softer than steel. It would get a good workout with your shooting regiment.

Over on RimfireCentral.com they are saying that Green Mountain replacement barrels are junk lately.

At one time they were good, but the company has changed, from what they say.

I say this just in case you opt for a new barrel...

the barrel is aluminum with a insert . the gun is lighter than it was with a factory pencil barrel and factory stock . its great for long squirril hunts . its so light that if somone jerks the trigger they hit about a foot high

I believe I'd run some lead remover down the barrel with some patches and let em sit over night. Then come back with some brushing. Also check your muzzle crown for dings.
