open sights refers to the second pic I put up and that is a .22 r/f not my TX200

tbh mate. I didn't think groups like that could be shot with open sights at 50m. well played.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.

when I first started shooting back in the 70's we used falling plates 12" x 12" at 100 meter's and I would drop one every shot with an SLR (the 7.62 x 51 round would go straight through it so they didn't last long)
Some times it it good to back to basics just to appreciate what a scope can do for you. I'm not sure where the pic is at the moment but I have one of a target at 100 meters where I used a 260 rem recently with a scope, 10 shots could be covered by a 2p, I hadn't sighted it in so I aimed at the bull no corrections and just put a grouping together

very creditable shooting.

It is good to go back to basics periodically.
