Shot a brace of Fox last week, left and a right in the evening light making the most of the moon and snow. Both body shots as they faced me, 100yrds or there abouts. Both dropped to the shot. Much to my shock, when I approached the animals, both were shot through the head, clean between the eyes. It seems that on my way off the Hill from my last Hind stalking trip the scope must have taken a knock.
Much distressed but thankful that a far worse incident had not happened, off I went to the rage expecting a simple couple of shots and a couple of clicks down, job done.
25 shots later and I still canít get a decent grouping. All my shots are surrounding the bull in a circle 3 inches wide with not one entering within it.
I checked and double checked everything, scope rings, moderator is not loose, bipod is not loose, bipod on, bipod off, is the barrel floating properly.
Naturally I assume its me, so I change positions and take great care as ever but still not a single round within my 3 inch bull.
Sako 75 varmint .243 with mod and Swarovski scope and good mounts Normally, both the rifle and I are very capable out to 300 yards and feel totally confident with it.
I just donít understand it, and I canít narrow down what the issue is. I have put the rifle away in the cupboard as I donít feel happy with it and cant be sure the bullet will go where I want it too.
Iím wandering if the barrel is finally shot out?
