I have the dumbest question.

It goes like this..my Rem .308 in dednuts at 100 yards..but at 200 yards its to the left 2 inches.
I am using 168 Hornadays and every mixed make of bullet I have. I have a cold barrel.

If its a dumb question forive me.

Re: I have the dumbest question.

Every time I shoot with a cold barrel after its dead on but after the 3re shot its off.
but I let it cool down and I am back to zero even after I notice it s I go back to 100 and I an in the 10..
No wind...it low area flat pines on both sides. the scope is turned rt 10 clicks back 20 than 10 back to zero and still on but beyond its off.

Re: I have the dumbest question.

I would think your scope is a bit canted. What does your rig consist of?

Re: I have the dumbest question.

What group size are you getting at 100?
Try sighting at 300 and then see where you are at 100.

Re: I have the dumbest question.

My groups are under 1 inch @100 and most are around .75...I have checked and re-checed and others who I shoot with are saying its dead on and not canted. I have spun that scope rt and left and it always comes back to zero. every time.
