My mate has a new 7mm remi mag. It seemed to be grouping ok with Federal. Then it wasnt. We used it yesterday and could barely get an 8 inch group. This was after mounts were tightened, stock on and off and the bore cleaned out.
Today he bought some RWS ammo and got nearer a 2.5 inch group although one shot from 9 was about 2 inch wide of centre. This still doesnt seem tight enough and yet it seems to suggest the ammo was a problem.
The real problem comes next, the price of ammo. The federal were £33, the RWS £48
Question 1 (and 1.5) - can you expect an 8" group from bad ammo and shooting from prone is 2" ok?
Question 2 - anyone know of other makes of 7mm ammo that isnt £48??
