"The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be."
I have trouble shot many rifles for inaccuracy, and half of them had scope mounts that were loose on the receiver.
Q: My rifle is suddenly not shooting as accurately as it used to. Help!
shot out your barrel
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???

this literally answered almost every question I would have asked
Brilliant, this is a great post for a newbie here.
I think the standard caliber to consider for a starter in addition to the .308win is the 6.5Creedmore. I think the .223 and .22LR are good learners. I use those smaller shooters while waiting for the LD barrels to cool.
