I have a SS BDL 300 Win Mag. that I would like to use for LRH this year but have problems with control out in the field. From bags I can group Ĺ inch fairly consistently shooting Sierra 180ís - which Iím pleased with. The problem is Iíve really got to pull the rifle into me and down to maintain that group, if I loosen up my grip much the groups start to open up and I get fliers. When I chronyíd and developed a drop chart for this round I ended up missing my target half the time because I donít hold the rifle the same way out in the field.
Iíve never used a muzzle brake
but have been entertaining the idea of installing one in the hope that I can shoot more reliably from sticks or a bag. I like the rifle a lot but is it too light for long range accuracy?
My other idea is to buy a PSS in 300 Win Mag that keeps catching my attention at a local gun shop. I have other heavy barreled target rifles and I know theyíre a lot more stable (longer and heavier), but I donít relish the idea of lugging a 12 or more pounds of rifle around the mountains.
