    I took my rifle out for the 1st time in 3 weeks, a remington 300 RUMin a sps model,When I last was at the gun range my groups were perfect center mass of target at 100 yards for my zero. Today right out the gate 2 inchs right of target. Adjusted back perfectly about fifteen rounds later rounds are impacting 1 ince right of center consistently. So Im at a loss. Scope adjusted beautifully From 100 y to 435 yards. I have put about 60 rounds tthrough it. I have leadsled loaded with close to about 40lbs of lead ingots . Has maybe the leadslead instigated something in the scope by being real ridged and not allowing much recoil?? Thanks for any insight.

    Right off, I have to state that I despise Caldwell Lead Sleds because toi defy Newton's Law of motion something eventually has to give. I believe you are on the right track.

    Closest I ever come to restraining any firearm is an MTM front rest (if there is no bipod) and a sandbag out back.

    Burris will stand behind it but I'd refrain from tying the firearm down. Use your shoulder as the recoil absorber.

    We have a group at the club who swear by sleds and those that swear at them. I'm of the latter.
