Luke, With my .243 barrel on my Striker I get groups of under 1" at 100 yards with IMR 8208XBR I'm still working on the load and I'm sure I can get it down to under 1/2" with an older Sierra 75gr
HP with .3gr under max loud taken from the Hodgdon load data online site. Like I said I'm still working with the load. My barrel is a take off from a 200 Stevens cut down to 16.5". I have a Nikon Monarch 3 4-16x42 sf mildot redicle Rifle scope. Watch out using a rifle scope you ha e to get your site picture then slowly move your head back to keep from getting bit by the scope. It's weird at first but you get used to it pretty quick. I am hitting a 10" x 13" gong at 300 yds. every shot with a 5 to 10 cross wind. I have a 10" groundhog painted on it and be's been riddled. Have your friend check the.crown and make sure it's not damaged.
Your buddy should be getting way better then 2 to 3". Stikers (not stryker) shoot very good normally. I'm using a bipod and a sand bag in the rear off a bench. My trigger has been lightened and smoothed just a little. Even with my .308 barrel I was shooting moa using both Varget and 8208xbr. I still pretty new with the Striker myself but everyone that shoots them alot are getting good tight groups with them.. Have him try the Imr8208XBR and see what he thinks. Let me know how it works for him. Hope this all helps him. I love my striker! I KNOW it can shoot better then I can. LOL If you get out by the dunes stop in for coffee. I can pm you my ph.# and directions to my place.
