Took my wife's rifle out to see how some factory ammo would shoot. It's a bergara b14 hunter in 30-06. Shot the barnes vor-tx 168 gr. 1st 3 shot group .777 moa. Let barrel cool for over an hour while shooting other guns. Brought it back out and dialed the scope to zero. Leopold vx3i 4.5-14 30mm cds. 2nd group .931 moa again 3 shots. Barrel was very hot after 3 shots as its 100 degrees outside. I needed to come over just about .5" so I did and decided to take another shot to make sure it was on for hunting and the shot was 1" high and so I shot 1 more and it was right there with the last one .7" to the right. My question is is it normal to shoot high with a hot barrel? I didn't shoot another just because it was too hot. Anyways these bullets shoot well. Way better then my handloads so far lol. I was tired of trying and we're to close to season.
