Re: a cause for horizontal stringing
looking at his group, the 4 shots i looked at were in almost a perfect horizontal line no more than a 1/2" vertical, but it printed one shot 3/4 of an inch left of center, then 1/2" right of center, then the 3rd shot almost went thru the same hole of the second shot, then the 4th was about 1/2" left of center just a thin strip of paper between it and the 1st shot.
he was shooting off a bipod and rear sand bags, i know the guy and he shoots very well.
it was a new remington 700 in 300 rum.
he was shooting reloads of 98 grains reloader 25 and oal was at mag length, with 180 gr nab's, new brass, and fed 215 primers.
we chatted for a bit, and i told him i had a virigin 300 rum also, and i haven't shot it much and was going to used sst's...
is the bipod to blame ?
he wanted to shoot it like field conditions, when hunting, so hence the bipod he uses all the time.
it's in a laminated stock, free floated barrel and pillar, and glass beded action.
trigger was about 3 lbs., best i could judge from trying it, i was thinking maybe trigger jerk.
he said he has about 30 rounds, down the tube, and broke it in properly, but this is the first groups for accuracy he's tried.
