Yes it shot good first 3 or 4 rounds, after that it had some flyers we let it cool for awhile and it just wasn't grouping at all.I have no helpful information but I guess this means the testing at mt pokt farm revealed some problems?
Danny, IF... you don't get better results soon, I would TRADE off that Rifle ASAP. Life is too short to mess with Finicky Rifles that have Problems like that. You might check the Barrel with a bore scope. I had a hi Dollar top of the line Remington 700 that I scoped and the rifling was a total mess. I rebareled it with a Lilja custom barrel.Browning xbolt 7mm rem mag I've tried 5 different powder 7 different bullets on the lands off the land's, cleaned shot it cleaned it I'd everything right installed a new trigger spring trigger is 2 1/2 lbs zero creap, checked scope mounts.
It will shoot first 6-7 shots pretty good then goes to he'll and rifling turn into copper gutters.
used a lead sled bought a bench rest front and rear bag.
I have, I used a lapping compound coated bullets. Usually takes around 4 - 6 shots, with bore cleaning after each shot. You can buy coated bullets from Midway or Midsouth Shooters. You don't really hear, that much, regarding fire lapping, or using a cleaning rod with patch coated with compound. I've used extra-fine #0000 steel wool to condition a rifle barrel, and it's about as good as the lapping compound or coated bullets.Anyone lapped a barrel? Specifically fire lapped one?
Thanks for the offer but I'm a few hrs away, almost done fire lapping I just have to shoot the last 10 rounds to add the final finish, I must say after cleaning 30 rounds I still had one land's at the end of the barrel holding copper bad still.David Tubb sells the Final Finish system for this type of issue. It works, but follow the directions to the letter, don't skip a step to try and do it faster. However, remember, this is a factory barrel and sometimes you get a POS. If you decide to try the fire lapping, you WILL void the warranty on this entire firearm..so go into it knowing that at that point, it's your rifle. I have a decent bore scope, if you're close to Richmond we can have a look at the bore and see whats going on.
