Re: Horizontal Stringing

I was shooting 5 sets of 99.5 GR WC872 powder and incrementing the seating depth by 0.005 with each set. Several sets of five went quite horizontal.

    You might try switching powders. I couldn't get wc872 to shoot all that well. Changed to 5010 and group sizes were cut in halve. just a thought!

    Make shure the barrel is free floating. Make shure you arent putting to much pressure on the stock/barrel when you shoot.

    Re: Horizontal Stringing

    Barrel (28 inch, plus 2 more inches for muzzle brake) is fully floated.

    What kind of pressure on the stock/barrel are you talking about?

    I was pulling the stock toward my shoulder firmly.

    Sky king (my pilot buddy i shoot with) told me horizonal strings are often a trigger control issue, he says dont let trigger finger touch wood or fiberglass only the trigger. Try it out and let me know if it worked it helped me . ebb

    Re: Horizontal Stringing

    stock pressure= you may be pulling down hard enough that the fore end contacts the barrel on some shots and not others. also you may have parallax and if you change the position of your shoulder or face that could cause the horizontal string.--if non of these or the other things work out i would send the scope back or at least call them and see if they have ever had this problem--if nothing else try it on a rifle of known accuracy and try to shoot a square by clicking the scope.
