Re: How to fine tune my new .338 Edge?
I found out (the hard way) that after cleaning a lot, I need to check the bedding for cleaning residue. I would find my groups deteriorating and then I pulled the action and found cleaning fluid residue in it. I dreid everything and put it all back together with a torque wrench and groups improved dramtically. This is a Sendero in the HS stock (not bedded). I've been using 65 inch lbs per Rem recommendation. Other sources recommend 45 for pillar bedded stocks.
Also, I found I almost always got screamer first two shots followed by slightly wandering third shot. The stringing often went from 1 o'clock to 7 o'clock. I think it's probably the barrel getting a little warm fter the first two shots.
