[/ QUOTE ]First, you gotta find out why it went there. There are no fliers in the accuracy game. Every bullet went through the target exactly where it was supposed to based on how the round was shaped (cartridge dimensions), loaded (positioned in the chamber), shot (how the rifle was held during the time the sear released the firing pin and when the bullet left the barrel) and aimed (where the sights were aligned on the target when the bullet left the barrel). Somewhere in each of these four areas, something went a bit astray. Unless one knows which one, it's kinda hard to tell why it went there.

Sorry, but I don't have an answer. We both need more data on that "flier" to compare against the others; then we'd know why it went there.
