Tikka300wsm accuracy problem
I am having problems getting my recently purchased T-3 stainless lite 300wsm rifle to group at 100 yds. the groups can be over 4". I have tried over 20 boxes of factory ammunition from 130gr 165gr to 180gr from both winchester and federal in various types, cheap to the most expensive i could find. I started with weaver mounts and a leuopold vx-3 4-14 ao scope and then tried the factory rings and also a second vx-3 scope with out much difference in results. Ive tried shooting a "clean Barrel" and a "dirty barrel". I "broke in" the barrel cleaning after every shot for the first 50 rounds then went 5 shots for another 50 rounds. I waited for the barrel to cool between shots and am using a "lead Sled" to help hold the rifle steady and reduce recoil.
I noticed the stock has 2 points of contact with the barrel aprox 4" from the reciever(I noticed this when i had the stock off to set the trigger pull, the stock left 2 "marks" on the barrel) . The stock seems to be molded that way from the factory. Is it designed that way? or should those Bumps be removed?
Im sorry for such a long post but I figure the more information I could offer you the better chance of finding a solution to the problem.
I also checked the reciever screws to make sure they were tight.
any help would be greatly appreciated........i got a kansas whitetail hunt in 4 weeks and i was hoping to you this rifle
