last year i didn't have anything like this that was noticeable and before last year i wasn't shooting the gun well enough to be able to tell.
i was thinking that there must be a stress or contact point. maybe i'll pull the action out and open up the barrel channel a little more. i finished this stock myself a few years back and while it passes the dollar bill test the channel is pretty close to the barrel.
That's why I never shoot with a clean bore when it counts. Too much changes with the first few fouling shots.
Try this. Before doing anything take it back out and set it up again and see what happens.
If it's still shooting well you have your answer.
My guess is it's either the difference in a clean and fouled bore or you are jerking/flinching a bit and didn't realize it.
The up and right stringing is very common with right handed shooters when you flinch/jerk.
