You'll save yourself a lot of time and frustration if you get a scope level that attaches to your scope. I played this game just how your playing it, Went I finally broke down and got the Vortex scope level it all stopped, except for the rifles I don't have a scope level on, I still do it with those but atleast I know now what and why.

Which way are you dialing for a left to right wind on the windage turret? I have watched countless guys dial with windage turret the same direction that the wind was blowing, thus exasterbating the wind. There are a hundred things that shooters do wrong during the course of shooting. Several of them are responsible for impacts being to the right of center with a right hand shooter. Good luck.

What are the issues that pull the groups right with a right hand shooter?

Truthfully I thought I had fixed my pull to the right when I changed my trigger squeeze and grip. On my 308 my right pull stopped. But this is the first time shooting the .243 with my new trigger control method. Maybe I need to come up with something else with this gun.

Re: Is it the Wind or Something I'm Doing?

The more I sit and ponder this I think I should just zero the gun at 300. Since testing at 100 yards using the exact same technique/shooting form, and doing the vertical line test at 0, +10, +20 and +30 inches of elevation and the groups stayed on the line. Could this be the 95 gr Berger not being settled in at 100 yards??

I'm burning/waisting lots bullets and powder when they are hard to come by these days.

Try wind flags. There is a lot going on in the bullet path where I shoot. Frustrating...you bet!!!
