I had my dmq level one today went to do the shooting part of it with my .223 cz 527 ebony edition guns about 5 years old with a t8 moderator about 2 years old, as i say i went to do the 100 yards to check my zero gun was hiting all over the place one shot on the target others were flying everywhere about 2 foot away from original point of aim!! could not get a group! i reload my own ammo last time i checked the zero 3 weeks ago it was fine nice 1 inch groups at 100 yards! so anyways i thought maybe its my reloads that are the problem maybe ive made a total arse of this batch! so i went home loaded another 12 bullets using the scale instead of the powder tipper and got the exact measurement and took these to my range still shooting all over the bit and i dont mean within a few inches i mean about a foot out !!! this is not on! help??????????? i checked that my barrel was free floating using the 10 pound not and its free all the way down to the action , i also took the moderator off this made no difference to my groupings!!! i checked all my mounts etc were all tight! the guns lucky if its shot 800 rounds thorugh it surely the barrels not worn out ? also i went to rod it for the first time 3 weeks ago and the rod broke with the brush half way down the barrel so managed to get it out using set of pliers on the rod could the brass brush of damaged the barrel? also today at the range i noticed my scope eye pieces was wobly so tightend it when i did this and looked thorugh it the picture was very dark fired 3 shots and it came back to normal and was still shooting all over the bit? could my scope be ****ed? the scope was a 150 quid new job all i could affford at the time how do i know if my scopes knacked? Also one or two of my home loads sounded different i.e the bang sounded louder ? soooo frustrating as my home loads have always been pretty bang on could my mod be knackered how can i tell if it is?
My plan of action is to fire some factory amo with mod and without mod see if it groups if not then im gonna get my mates scope give it a try and see if i can group some shots !
has anyone had any experience of damaged rifleign in the barrel? what does it look like on the target?
sorry this is so long winded but this is cracking me up this little rifle is my pride and joy! any ideas and help would be appreciated cheers
ohh afore anyone says it ITS NOT MY SHOOTING! LOL as the instructor gave me his 308 and i had 6 shots all grouping within the inch at 100 yards
