Hey everyone. After months of handloading (first timer) and trying to put together a good rifle I have finnally got my gun to shoot some good groups. I have a Savage LRH in 300 win mag topped with a vortex 6.5-20 x 50 with egw base and burris tactical rings. After 100 rounds down th barrel and many different loads I was dumbfounded at why this rifle couldnt shoot. I let my friend take my gun and try some handloading himself. He found many problems. First the scope was not mounted right and he thought the paralex was messed up. Also, the trigger was not resetting after every shot. Long story short, I called Savage and Vortex and they sent me replacement parts asap and I was impressed with the customer service. My buddy took my gun to his gunsmith aling with my new parts and scope. The gunsmith installed everything and I was back on track. Took the gun to the range with my berger 210 gr and to my amazement I shot a great group. Next day I went to 200 with the same loads and shot 1.5 inch to 1.75 inch groups with atleast 20 mph wind. After months of problems I finnaly got my gun to shoot! I just wanted to share my story and let everyone know that there can be so many things causing issues and to check every little thing. I assumed the scope was mounted perfect and never checked like many people recomended. Check everything! I have a hunt in a few weeks and cant wait to take this rig and harvest an elk. I have one question. If i get a good muzzle velocity from a chrono can I expect the G7 drop chart to be accurate. I was looking at a video from vortex and they said to test the drop chart to "validate trajectory". On the video the guy was 6 inches low from what the drop chart said and I couldnt believe how off it was. I will try to validate the drop chart but if I dont can I count on the drop chart to be accurate for my hunt. Thanks everyone!
