2.3 inch group with Federal Gold Math at 100 yards. Mel was right unfortunately. I was hoping for .25 MOA :lol:mele said:
I had bags. I will try to make pics. 4.5 years of military college did not make me a good rifle shooter, so hopefully I will get better.caver101 said:Can you post a close up pic of the action? sorry to hear about the 2.3" group....... :? Better luck next time. What position did you shoot from? Do you have a rifle vise, sand bags.....anything like that?
With your average shooter and hunting ammo from a bench rest not a ransom rest you should be looking for 1.5 to 3 MOA groups. I worked at the Outdoor World sporting shop in the Ft. Lauderdale area for a few years and we sold quite a few of these to customers who came back to buy more ammo with a big grin on there face. Im sure you will like it as well.car5car said:
Once it is "broken in" and the barrel is settled in your groups should go down a little. Same goes with practice, your groups should go down a bit. Dont forget to clean it real good, you can have the best barrel in the world and if its dirty its not going to shoot good. Copper solvent is a must after EVERY shoot. You wouldnt beleive how many people i had to explain to at my job in a gun store in florida what copper solvent is and why its used.car5car said:2.3 inch group with Federal Gold Math at 100 yards.

Great! Thanks! It gives me hope! I am a beginner I'll get better.alahighrollerscc said:Ok, I found one in a pawnshop for 175$ with a scope. The scope is a northwest territory 3-9x32. Using some mil sup ammo I had it shooting a 1.2 group at 100 yards. That was without a bench, laying on the ground. The rifle looks brand new, I think I heard someone mention that when the bolt was closed it still moved, well mine doesn't. I figure after I get some match ammo and something to steady myself I should be under 1". What ya'll think?
I'll try to soon, I couldn't find the digi cam when I posted last. I am very impressed by this rifle. It has a pad on the stock from the factory, that is so good you wouldn't think it was an 30-06.car5car said:I couldn't attach pics of my Mossberg action
