glass beding

I have a model 700 sendero in 264 its shoots about .75 -1moa.The question i have is it will shoot the first 2 in or about the same hole and the third flies about 3/4 to 1 inch. It does this with diffrent powders and bullets. Just wonderingif glass beding will fix this problem I know it has the bedding block. I am hoping the glass will tighten every thing up a bit to help my accruacy. Or could the crown be bad?

    Bedding blocks are normally good but bedding them will almost always make them shoot
    better.

    I have never seen a bedding job that was done right hurt the accuracy/consistency of any
    rifle. and the reason for bedding in the first place is to improve shot to shot consistency.

    Go ahead and bed it it can only improve it.

    Honest answer that might sting.

    Double check your procedures on the bench. I know we are all red blooded American men which means by rights know how to:

    Drive faster
    Screw better
    Shoot straighter

    than anyone else on the planet. . .


    Be that as it may a careful evaluation of your bench game procedure just may improve that random flyer your having.

    FWIW I absolutely SUCK at bench shooting and I quite often have to resort to help/coaching from someone with more experience. Boyd Allen, a guy that frequents BR.com is a really good resource for this stuff.

    My only point in stating this is that I find too often a gun is thought to be the culprit when in fact the shooter is doing something.

    Good luck.

    I have a custom 257 wby that did the same thing. Someone suggested slowing down and putting "A MINIMUM" of 1 minute between shots. This practice took my groups from 3 rounds under a quarter to 3 rounds under a dime. My 257 was the worst for heating up, but shooting in this manner has decreased the groups for all my rifles.

    Good Luck

    Agree.

    I have a couple of .22s that I use for practice as I'm after technique more than accuracy. One of them isn't that accurate anyway but the rifle "feels like" my 7mm Wby so it's a cheap stand-in. Even with those I try to wait and to think for each shot. If I do that I'll be "practiced up" for my centerfires when I actually have to wait between shots to be sure the barrel is cool.
