I cannot tell how to improve your groups.
Because your shooting is better then mine at those distances. :wink:
Were you shooting in a rested position or a sitting position or a prone position or standing offhand :?:

i was shooting in the seated position the first 75 foot sound than the rested position for the 100 and the other 75 foot round (the one with better grouping) and the prone position for the 120, 150 and 200 foot shots

Nice shooting. 8)
To improve your groups, try some different brands and types of pellets. You would be amazed at the difference that a simple change in pellet can make - even a differing size of the same pellet - ie - a 5.51 mm pellet compared to a 5.52 mm pellet. For ranges beyond 25 yards, stick with round nose style pellets.
