    was setting here looking at all my old targets on the wall. There is one thats bugs me the most it is the best one. I t was at 60 Y -10 or -15 dam cold . First thing how long would you wait between shots to call it a cold bore?

    It depends on barrel diameter, barrel material, caliber and indavidual barrel sensitivity and how cold it is.

    well it is a factory rem. 721 in .06 and I just put new scope on it. I was sighting it in. I was doing 3 shot groups and waiting 3 to 5 min between sets. Once I got it close I tryed realy hard form bla bla. 3 just off the 10 mark. Set 1 1/8" from eatch other set 2 4 shots all in the same hole was I happy. Yes I know it was only 60 yards. Later on that year summer went shotting and at a 100 Y it was all over the place. This has buged me.
