What velocity do you get with those loads?

[/ QUOTE ]

I did not get a chance to Chrony the loads as it was after dark by the time I got the new scope on. I had to zero in the new scope by shining my headlight on the target.I guessed velocity to be around 2900 FPS. So I entered the info in my balistic program ,and loaded up the rest of the rounds for the match.Then the next morning, my first sighter was almost perfect elevation, but I had to put on 2 more min of windage.My third shot was for score and I haven't shot the gun since. I will get out and crony them as soon as I can. I have been crazy busy and haven't hardly shot my guns in a month.

Did you ever figure out the the problem?


[/ QUOTE ]

I am suspecting it was my scope,
but have not had a chance to verify, I changed loads,scope and re-torqued all screws.
I did not want to waste another day at the match, so I went over everything It could have been.
I was trying some new bullets and never could get them to shoot to my satisfaction,so I knew I was dealing with an inconsistant ammo problem, but I believe the 2 MOA was something mechanical, as it moved on me and then moved back the exact amount,But I'm open to any suggestions.
FWIW,

p.s I'll let you know when I put the scope to the test if it was in fact the problem.
