    What twist does it have and what weight projectiles are you using? I have seen Long Range rifles that take more than 100 yards to stabilize heavy bullets and then seen them spiral into tighter groups. I know this may not sound logical, but it happens. I would first try making sure that the twist and projectile are a correct match up. My 1:12 twist .308 Palma rifle shots Super Groups with 155s at 1,000 yards and with 175 it just wont group. Then I would try it at longer yardages and see what happens. I have also seen plenty of one hole groups at 100 yards that turn to 3 inch groups at 200.

    I agree with rkittine. Both of long range rifles that I have seem to shoot better groups the further you go. Say like 200 yards and on. I would also recommend to use a led sled or some solid base. I am sure there is a lot of flinching going on, it was when I was shooting.

    SEB NEO LARGE.jpgA really good rest as well as a solid bench is needed too. I have seen people shoot off wooden benches, that appear solid, but move without you realizing it. It only takes a tiny movement at the rifle to be multiplied like crazy at the target.

    Just put together my new SEB NEO rest today. That and a quality, correctly filed rear bag will make a huge difference.

    Makes me glad I did not seek any of the magnum rifles in the Long Range series... but also has me nervous for the 30-06 I will take possession of today.
