Rem 700 Accuracy Problems
First post here, but have been reading on this forum a bunch. I found this site very valuable in the past about buying scopes, bullets, etc, etc.
With that said I have a Rem 700 5R in 300 win with a 26 inch barrel that I am having a tough time getting to group. I am shooting factory loads and have spent hundreds of dollars trying to get something to hold a decent group. If I was smart enough I would post a pic of an avg group, but I can tell you this gun is the least accurate gun I own, and I own a bunch! I have the same exact gun in 308 with 20 inch threaded barrel that will hit the same hole every shot. I am not expecting the same accuracy out of my 300 as the 308, but I could have went to Wal-Mart and bought a gun that would shoot better than this 300 does. The best ammo I have found at this point is HSM 210 grain Berger and I have tried just about everything out there at this point. Trust me I understand that reloads are much more accurate, but at this point in time I do not have time to reload. I bought the gun to hunt in the Midwest with and most of my shots are inside 500 yards. All of my shooting at this point has been at 100 yards. I have a place where I can shoot 500 yards, but I haven’t dare tried this thing at anything over 100 yet in fear I might hit someone in the next county. The “adjustable” trigger is let all the way out and pulls at just over 4#’s…. The same trigger in my 308 will go down to 3#’s. Both of my guns have the same scope (Luepy Mark 4 6.5X20 50mm) and same rings, bases and everything.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
