My buddy just told me his brother is selling his stw. Don't you know I called him immediately. Hope it's a sendero. Now on to the picture
New savage 6.5x 284. First three shotS.... Using HSM ammo. No clue the powder but 140 gr Berger. Funny thing, and I mention it due to the wealth of knowledge here with all you guys, if I shot one cleaned with 8 patches or so and shot again, they came out like the picture. If I shot 3 in a row, 6-8 inch spread.
Interesting. I hope it's due to barrel break in but I guess I will have to see
Mario, I re read your post, which I replied to last nite, and yeah, I do think that the barrel break in IS an issue, but I can't wrap my head around a 6-8 inch spread on a 3 shot string. Does your rifle have the Accu Stock? I am told that they are very torque sensitive. I am not trying to alarm you, as it probably is JUST the barrel break in, and factory ammo, but the HSM ammo is usually about as good as it gets, besides A- Square. You will know better when you put some hand loads through it!
