Finally gave in to the dreaded "Rimfire Benchrest" disease.

The Mossberg 144 shared a birthday with me in 1949.

Learned a lot today.

1. Don't shoot late in the day due to wind.

2. Wind can REALLY affect accuracy with subsonic bullets.

3. The Mossy likes Wolf Match Target.

4. Making tight little groups is fun and quite the challenge.

While is seems logical that a subsonic .22 bullet would be affected more by the wind, actually the opposite is true. This is a pretty good article on .22 ammo.

Thanks, good read.

Subsonic affected less, but the wind still moves them around when I'm trying to get them all in one hole. :)

When you mention the 22 target rifle I thought the groups were with peep sights until I saw the rifle pic later. Those guns were designed for iron sights. Nice groups.
Thank you.
It does have peep sights, but they've been upgraded to a Mossberg S-331 rear and a Lyman front.

doc540..... do you know when your rifle was made? I find myself looking for the older guns now. my newest colt revolver was made in 1977 my oldest is 1957. new guns don't do it for me anymore. nice rifle you have and it shoots good to.
1949-1953
