Quick fix for the Norinco

With regard to Jim Nash’s question in Top Shots (Shooter, April 2019) I have a near identical Norinco JW23 and had the same sighting-in problems. I tried several combinations of ammunition and scopes etc and was ready to junk the lot until a wise old head at Eagle Park said “why not try standard speed ammo”.

The result? Six shots, six bulls. It relates to the rifling twist in the pipe. Now, ¾^ groups are no problem at 75m and bunny head shots at 100m are the norm.  Remember, this one shoots much better with a clean barrel.
