Re: vertical stringing groups

Have you changed component in the load?
Was the load used, used before with consistant results over several series of groups?
Was the other rifle shooting the same cartridge too, or a different cartridge altogether?
Has this gun ever shown a tendency to do this before?

I suspect a primer change or load reduction could cure it at this point though.

I had some verticle stringing in my 300 Ultra recently I worked out somehow. By somehow I mean I changed about three different things at once regaurding the load and one of them got rid of it.

I had cases prepped already with different primers and so I used them just for the hell of it. Now I still have to go back and find what was causing it, but at least it's gone.

Re: vertical stringing groups

Inconsistant ignition, untuned load, inferior factory recoil lug, bedding, pressure on barrel from forend inconsistant from heating or rest pressure, inconsistant pressure on shoulder and hold, flinching, jerking the trigger, action screws loosening or wrong torque, scope base or ring movement, bolt misalignment causing contact on lower lug only, etc.

All can contribute, just a process of elimination. I'm not sure what the most common one would be, but there's probably many that fit that statement based on the fact that alot of them are present in factory rifles from the get go.

What's the components being used? More specific help or experiences might be had if we knew more.

Re: vertical stringing groups

Jared

couple things. conditions or load dev

1. tail or head wind conditions during group being shot.

2. come up or down .2 grain on powder

3. come of seating depth by .05

Try those if it was not conditions.
