Re: Anybody using the Lazzeroni calibers????
I have shot 19 rounds out of mine...quite disappointing actually. 3" to 4" groups at 100yds!!!!!! I spoke with a gunsmith that had the same problem with his Sako in 8mm Mag, and a new recoil lug fixed his problem. The TRG-S's recoil lug (or lack thereof) is pathetic. I just finished bedding the action from the tang to about the first 3/4" of the bbl. I also had a muzzle brake installed, and I'm crossing my fingers, hoping that at least the bedding will fix my problem. It is one thing for you to consider. I might have got a lemon, and yours may shoot like a dream, much like my best friend's...but if it wont group, take your action out of the stock and look at the itty bitty recoil tab that's supposed to prevent movement in the stock. If there are shiny spots before and after that recoil tab, your action is moving in the stock. Either get ahold of Rod at Accrabond Laminates, (email@example.com) or find a gunsmith to glass bed your action. Here is a copy of his email to me, explaining his solution:
"The fix is not terribly expensive. Call Dan at 406-755-4867. We'll fabricate a cubic recoil lug that is press fit into the slot on the underside of the receiver. We then drill out the recoil tab in the receiver and hog out a bunch of plastic around the hole. Epoxy is poured into the hole and the new recoil block is bedded. No other part of the bedding is touched. Cost = $100.
A side benefit is you around now ready for stocking in wood or other stock if you want. All you need is bottom metal. My TRG has been ULTRA reliable with this fix."
