I have to share this to all those who are having issues with their Steyr Pro hunter and finding you can just about get your group on paper at 200m.
I lost faith in my new Steyr which i recently purchased, fitting it with a Bushnell scope and Third Eye Tactical Spartan mod. I could just about get on paper at 100m with a huge scattering of shots.
I shot the Steyr Aug when serving in Forces for of 5 years and had so much faith in this manufacturer as my former personal weapon was formidable even when covered in mud, in artic climates or African conditions. I just refused to believe my pro hunter was any different.
After going through £60 worth of 155 grain Hornady ammo and the group not getting any better I went to my Rfd and told him my case. He gave me 168 grain ammo and advised me to start my zeroing all over again..........
Now what can I say....the rifle is FORMIDABLE!
I shot the first few at 35 yds and within 4 shots could have hit a 50p piece.....moved to 100yds and again the grouping was as tight as a duck's arse.
Then I got into a bit of a messing mood and moved to 300............fired four shots, waited 5mins and fired again and the accuracy had me laughing my head off when I got up to the target.
I don't know what it is but the difference between 155 Hornady and the new Hornady 168grain ammo is like black and white. So if you are having accuracy difficulties don't despair, try a new ammo and you may be surprised with the result!
