I`ve just come back from zeroing my newly aquired styre .270 which is about 20 yrs old and which i got from york guns last week.
On it have put a 6x42 hungarian s/b and plan to put a stainless p.e.s. + bypod.
When i put it together i just bore sighted it in the garden and went on my merry way to check what kind of grouping i was getting. First of all i paced out to about 50 yards and laid down resting with a sand bag under the stock, first 2 shots were 4" low and 1" to the right, not bad i didn`t think, so then did the appropriate adjustments and placed another 2 shots and low and behold they went straight within 1" of the bull. Going back to 100 paces i then placed another couple of rounds onto the target and within a total of 7 shots i am really pleased with the group i have got which is now shooting 1" high at 100 paces. To top it off the ammo that i am using is called prvi partisan at 130 grains, these bullets are by far the cheapest bullets on the market and have served me well, even when i was contracting, i also use these in my .243. Who else is using an old styre, and what do you think.? Wadashot.
