    I had an 85 in 30-06, same problem I took the stock off and filed away all the plastic the whole way so the barrel was totally free floating, my head was wrecked for weeks trying different brands/weights and different hand loads, eventually I got it to give acceptable groups but I never had confidence in the gun, I traded it for a blaser r93 and that is grouping any brand,any weight, I have to say I never really rated the r93 before I saw how accurate they are and I have never looked back. I know a few people who have had bother with the 85
    Hope this is of some help,

    Sorry I don't know what twist the finnlight is, do you know it or have you measured it? If its 1/14+ that could be your problem

    According to the website it 1-11 which leaves me stumped. I have alway found the .308 very forgiving and I'm a big sako fan.

    This is average group after stock mod, off bonnet of the jeep with a jacket rolled up,100m thumb tack, it's ok but I had lost faith at that stage.
