    Q: My rifle is suddenly not shooting as accurately as it used to. Help!
    A:
    screws.
    Cheap scopes
    barrel crown
    clean it
    shot out your barrel
    I have trouble shot many rifles for inaccuracy, and half of them had scope mounts that were loose on the receiver.

    The ring to scope tightness can easily be checked.
    The ring to mount tightness can easily be checked.
    The mount to receiver tightness requires taking the scope and rings off the rifle.

    A characteristic symptom is different groups on the same target. Two hole together over here followed by two holes together way over here is typical.

    A fix is to tighten the screws.
    They might get loose again.
    Cleaning the oil from the screws and screw holes and then applying Loctite 242 to the threads and glass bedding between the mount and the receiver is better.
    Fixturing dual Weaver mounts to be co planar and co linear requires some effort when glass bedding. A scope with rings can be used as the fixture, with the mount to receiver screws loose. This will also preclude the lapping of rings, and make musical chairs of scopes with rings moving from rifle to rifle with no bind and being on the paper.

    Opening The Bolt

    What about commenting on the number of degrees different actions open at?

    If I remember correctly Weatherby rifles open up within 60 degrees or so. Is

    this a valid addition to the FAQ thread???
