    new blaser

    I have a guest who comes stalking with me who has just bought himself a new Blaser in .270. He is using winchester ammo 130 grain and it is very inconsistent. He is a good enough shot however cannot seem to get much of a group with it. Any suggestions.

    Change brand of ammo, all Blasers are shot at the factory with Norma ammuntion, so try Norma and see if that improves things.

    Try a different make Federal, Norna, etc , it's trial + error till you get one that suits the rifle.

    Atb, Buck.

    My Blaser .243 works extremely well with federal 95grn and not at all well with Sako 100grn, so as others have said experiment with different brands and bullet weights

    Suggest a Sako 85 ?

    Get him to try fedral or remington core loct. Both 130 grn. Are you sure he hasnt been dicking about with the screws the lock the barrel in place. I have only used the aforementioned ammo and the rifle is straight from box, with a mod and clover leafs at 100 yds no bother.

    Agree on changing the brand of ammo. I also suggest that you have a shot with the rifle too and see if you get the same results as your guest does. Although it's a quality bit of kit, are all the bits done up tight correctly? If your guest is testing the rifle with your assistance, do a blind test so that he doesn't know what brand he is shooting (ie you load the rifle and then let the guest get down behind it).

    Regards JCS

    Check the mod is tight if one is used.
