new model 18-7 problem

Is .011 too much of a barrel cylinder gap for a .22lr?

Thank in advance

Sorry it took me so long to respond. When I put up the post, I had not shot my revolver. I just came back from the range (I had a day off).
It wasn't good. I'm no Brian Zins, but I could only get an inch and a half from 10 yards from the bench using both my hands and firing single action. As for leading, I think it is. I seeing silver-gray substance above the barrel front and a streak about 4 or 5 o'clock on the frame. Also, while I was firing I felt something hit my left cheek twice. It felt hot. What do you think?

I forgot to note, I was using Wolf target and fire 50 rounds.
