Thread: 30-06 Grouping

    30-06 Grouping

    Afternoon gents
    my boss has got a new rifle(30-06) and with mod fitted the grouping is pants but without the mod it groups really well, any ideas as to why this is.
    Using 150grain Norma ammo

    What rifle is it (in what stock as well)?
    is it poss that the weight of the barrel is causing the barrel to touch the forend?

    I would think it would be a fair guess to say that either the barrel or the moderator aren't threaded correctly.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Rifle is a Steyr pro hunter, mod is a roedale precision

    Stock contacting the barrel would be my number1 guess, seem to remember reports of this with plastic stocked steyr rifles before?

    although as has been suggested could be a bad threading job

    harmonics!!! Try the same with a few different loads failing that go back to the drawing board and do some load development

    I would expect better accuracy with mod unless it is clipping the mod on the way through

    1. screw cut off center
    2. crown uneven
    3. weight up front effects harmonics
    4. shoot 3 if home loaded and 5 if factory
