The only error I see here that is consistent after the first shot is that you are almost always low which could come from any number of causes. You are all over the place left and right though which tends to make me lean towards technique or ammo being the biggest problems.

Have you Run this ammo through a chrony to see what the ES is?

    it was a clean cold bore on the first pictures i posted. Time between shots was shoot, cycle shoot ect..

    Went out again and shot a few more rounds, It was cooler and less wind. almost dark..

    So the rifle sat for half the day and my first shot was a happy sight

    Well then that brings me back to where I was before. After a good cleaning, fire a fouler or two before shooting for "record" so to speak.

    After seeing the targets I agree with wild rose now . I can't see this sudden cold bore shot that is so bad after waiting 5 or 10 minuets . I see the same , variation in POI in lots of directions . You are not shooting all that bad but I don't think the rifle is at fault . I think you need to work on your technique a bit more and try different brands of ammo .

    Re: Cold Bore Improvment

    Just out of curiosity what magnification are you using at this range? Are you sure your parallax will even dial down that close?

    Bullet bumper, Yeah i need to try some better ammo for sure, and shoot off a bench for this kind of research. Im just out in the desert on a dirt road laying in the dirt lol.

    WildRose, I am using a swfa ss 16x mq. and it will focus down that low. And i do the bobble head parallax check lol
