Re: 300 win mag
[ QUOTE ]
I'm scratching my head alot, these days trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I can drive tacks at 100 yds best I ve I ever done with this rifle. I'm proud of it,but at 200 yds I have a 2in. group and at 300 yds I have a good 5 in group. I have increased powder and decrease powder. I tried seating deeper. Currently I'm using IMR 4350 @70 grains of powder.using Rem cor lokts and horandy 180 grain. bullets seated at 3.402. Does anyone have Idea what I should do?
[/ QUOTE ] Terry Miller, Sounds like an equipment problem more than a loading problem. I would proceed as follows. Go back to your one hundred yard target (do not change loads). Do not do anything untill you fire a group, 5 shots. Then square the target, move the scope adjustment and shoot all four corners. Do not move the rifle from your rest and bags. Change only the scope adjustment! This is of upmost inportance! If you can square the target by changing only the crosswires then you have proved the scope, the mounting system the whole package. Now if this doesn't prove to be the case then you need to first suspect the scope. It can be an erector tube problem. You must not take any other steps before you prove to yourself that your equipment is right. If the equipment is ok, then start worring in another direction. Please do this test first and then get back to us. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
