My SAvage 10 FP LE2B Verticle stringing

When I take my Savage 10 FP in 308 out the first 3 shots when the barrel is cold will form a verticle group of 1.5". Then once the barrel is warm it will shoot nice groups around 1/2" to 3/4". Does anyone have any suggestion for me? I live in Saskatchewan so the barrel is cold very often.

Re: My SAvage 10 FP LE2B Verticle stringing

6mm, Does this happen even with a fouled barrel? or just a cold clean barrel?

If it's with a cold clean barrel, you prabably need a little fouling in the bore to get the rifle to "settle in" If thats the case just take the gun and foul the barrel before hunting or target shooting.

If it happens with the 1st 3 cold shots, whether the barrel is clean or dirty, than I would look towards barrel contact on the stock, or action screws slightly under tourqed.

If thats not it I suggest you wrap the barrel with heat tape. That way you will have a portable hand warmer. at least as portable as the length of your extension cord.

sorry I couldn't help it.

This happens with a fouled barrel and the stock does not touch the barrel at all. I will check the torque of the bolts though.
