BR-549 Posted November 7, 2011 Report Share Posted November 7, 2011 My buddy bought a new Savage .243 bolt action and put a Redfield 4-12/40mm scope on it. We took it out to sight it in and the first time he tried with two different cartridges, both at 100 gr. One was a cheap Serbia made sp, the other was a Hornady BTSP. I could not believe the difference between the two bullets. The cheapos shot closer to aim point than the Hornadys. There was about 8" between the two groups, so we couldn't figure out what the deal was until we looked close at the target. The Hornadys were wobbling, you could see the elongated hole in the paper. Our first thought was too heavy of a bullet. His rifle has 22" barrel with 1/9.25 twist. Went and bought some lighter rounds and tried the next day again..... then we got this action.4 shots, each walking down and left. They are numbered in this pic in order of fire. I say loose mounts but he swears up and down they were tight.. I dunno. Somethings moving. What do you guys think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
