Re: cold bore shot

It depends on barrel diameter, barrel material, caliber and indavidual barrel sensitivity and how cold it is.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: cold bore shot

well it is a factory rem. 721 in .06 and I just put new scope on it. I was sighting it in. I was doing 3 shot groups and waiting 3 to 5 min between sets. Once I got it close I tryed realy hard form bla bla. 3 just off the 10 mark. Set 1 1/8" from eatch other set 2 4 shots all in the same hole was I happy. Yes I know it was only 60 yards. Later on that year summer went shotting and at a 100 Y it was all over the place. This has buged me.
