Sako TRG-S Bedding / Recoil Lug Fix ?

Has anyone managed to get the original stock work properly ?

Mine has a problem with 300 grainers, after the first shot the POI drifts to the left so grouping is pain, it needs at least half an hour to "settle down" back to where it really is.

It is the lug / bedding thing, not heat,moly or my shooting. After a few rounds POI will slightly drift back,too,impossible to group five rounds well. The lug is hidden in plastic, that plastic must be "giving" somehow after the first round or whatever this is.

I´ll be busy this week but IMHO this is a warranty thing, I´ll let you know what Sako folks say. I will drive to the friggin´ factory with my German Shepherd if needed.

Any DIY fixes? Sorry for doubling this question now... it´s in "Basics" as well with pics... couldn´t help.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
