I am working on a hunting load and have found an accurate load (for me) with 200 gn Accubond/75.2 gn H1000/CCI250. However, the first, cold bore shot seems to shoot 2-3 inches left. The remaining 4 shots end up making a 0.8"-1" group at 200 yds. With hunting season fast approaching I was wondering if any of you reloading gurus out there have an idea of what could be causing it or anything I can do to fix it. Since it is a hunting round cold bore accuracy is paramount. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Now for some background: The rifle is Savage 112 VLP in 300 win mag and has the varmint contour barrel so I haven't seen any stringing due to barrel heat yet (only 150 rds down the pipe). It's been 50 rds or so since I cleaned the barrel so it is definitely fouled, but I haven't seen a drop off in accuracy so I haven't felt the need to clean it. Also, I always dry fire practice before sending the first shot so I'm pretty confident that I am not the cause of THAT big of a flier. I usually know right away if I pull it that bad.
