I'm guessing you are shooting what a .308?
If you get the same consistent problem at closer ranges I agree with this.

Also, not being a smarty pants but it says on the target 7mm RM.

    Scope is new, aint changing it. I corrected my first post to reflect the fact that I was in fact using a 7mm Rem Mag as the target says.

    My second taget is reverse of the first without the bullseye. Since its reversed I think I'm tipping the rifle in the sandbag on the second shot( studied it for an hour today). Third shot dropping could be me but I think I'll take a look at the bedding screws in the morn. Rifle is all factory and is not a floater bbl. Thanks.

    It's ok to be a smarty pants as long as you smile.

    I was just looking at holes, not reading the fine print HA!

    I'm curious to learn if it's consistently off in the same direction and relatively the same distance. If so, it really makes me think it's a bedding/float issue.

    I've also seen a LOT of Tascos that had a loose reticle which would jump around a good bit but in a predictable manner which is why I made the scope suggestion.
