Re: Accuracy Problem
The scope I have is a Leupold Vari-X III, 4.5->14X40. I did check the scope and it appears to be tight, i.e. not loose to the touch or anything like that. To clean my rifle, I use a combination of Bronze brush, bronze cleaning jag and Kleen-Bore's No. 10 Copper Cutter. Before I panic completely, I'm going to have my friend (ex Canadian Army Sniper) shoot it and if he gets good groups with it then I'll know it's me.
My shooting setup for sighting in is a Harris bipod attached to the front stock, and a sandbag under the butt. This way it's really steady. I pull the rifle into my shoulder with my right hand, and my left hand is under the butt just ahead of the sandbag.
I know that I probably have to do a lot more shooting, since one can't expect to shoot well without much practice, but I wasn't expecting to shoot this badly.
Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.
