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!

I have read about the accustocks and I forgot the problem but I'm sure I can find it. I'll try the free float thing and see if it is ok. I'll tell u, the first shot after cleaning was always right on!!!! It was just the follow up 2 shots that flew.
