Well that would bring me back to the rifle having a problem and being extremely picky about ammo it will shoot under 3/4 moa. The only 5 shot groups this gun has fired that are below 3/4 minute were shot with a different scope on it.?
The rifle really should shoot, and I've already had it back to the smith to check bedding. All checked out ok. Tried 5 bullets, different seating depths, two primers. Two powders, no reason it shouldn't shoot one hole groups by now. Even blind luck should've stumbled across something that would shoot sub 1/2 minute.
Nesika action, pillar bedded into a heavy resin filled wood stock. Heavy straight taper Krieger barrel, 12 twist 22-250, fully floated from the action forward. Jewel trigger set at 10 oz. 1913 rail on top. Barrel is not loose, action and base screws are tight. The barrel didn't move a dial indicator any at all when the action screws were loosened alternately.
If it's the rifle, I am guessing that it's chamber/bore alignment, action/barrel alignment, or bad barrel/bad crown.? The throat hasn't lengthened much yet. Testing with another scope is in the plans at the moment, unless there's any other suggestions.
One thing I found interesting with this particular action, is there is no recoil lug. The lug is the heavy tang at the rear of the action. Anyone got a rifle like that?
