I guess the first question would be, how much vertical your getting and at what distance? My immediate answer would be the same 338-378's, but it could also be shooter error with bench technique, breathing etc.

As Brent said also it could be a million things but you only gave a little information to go on.

Re: vertical stringing groups

the gun shoots .1's and .2's @ 100 on a regualr basis.these groups would be that good except they go about .5 to .6 vertical but are still in the .2 range horizontal.not to toot my own horn but I dont think its me,I shot both my bench guns that day and the other shot the way it should be shooting,but this one did the vertical thing and has never done it in the past yr that I have had the gun.I think its in the load,I was shooting 30.5grns of H322 with lupua cases and 70nbts.

Re: vertical stringing groups

Did you change the primers? New lot of powder or bullets? First thing I would do is to go up/down in the loads. Just been my own experience is that vertical is too mild a load. But your load sounds like a max load. So I would try to back off on the charge first.

I used to have pretty good luck with Varget when I had my 6BR.

Just some of my initial thoughts.

Re: vertical stringing groups

If I remember right is was 31-32 grains. I used remington cases and Federal 210M primers with Berger 70 gr bullets. Not sure what starting or max is.
