Savage 110

Hi my name is Tom Kudla (age 17) and I bought my first rifle (Savage 110 .270 WIN)about a month ago. I like to shoot at the range and shoot about 40 rounds a sitting. After a couple of shots my groups open up alot. It does not have the heavy barrel. Is this due to the heating up of the barrel? If so would adding a heavy barrel help at all? Thanks, Tom Kudla

    Do your groups come back with just letting the gun cool or do you have to clean it before it gets better?

    Hi Red Wulf, Your problem could easily be either the lack of cleaning or the barrel heating.You will have to eliminate the variables through testing or the problem may make you crazy. Cleaning the gun every 15 rounds or so should eliminate the cleaning possibility. Any you can shoot a few groups letting the gun cool down between shots.Then compare the results to how the gun shoots when hot.I would try those things first then if you still have not identified the problem we can move on from there.But I'm guessing one of these factors or both of them combined is your problem.

    I made a mistake the rifle is the Savage 111 not the 110. I just cleaned it for the first time and have not yet shot it again. So the factor could have been the temperature? Tom
