Re: model 88

What size groups? Not holding zero could be a scope issue. Bedding generally is a factor on these rifles, but basically its moving farther than I would expect from bad groups.

Re: model 88

part of the problem could be keeping the rifle steady since it takes both hands
to pull the trigger on 88s.
