270wsm shoots 12 inch pattern when barrel hot
Hey Tikka people
I have a question about my 270wsm laminated stock. Seems after 6 to 8 rounds on a bench, the barrel is too hot to touch and the pattern widens out to 12 inches. ( that is shooting 3 in a row and then walking down the 200 yds to check the grouping, so it is not back to back shots). Cooling the thing down, the next day it corrects the problem. Not a problem when hunting needing 1 or 2 rounds but trying to mount a scope which is requiring me to shoot more rounds. So, factory load with 4 different weights, speeds, and manufacturers. All do the same. Been re bedded by a custom shop and do not expect trouble there. The scope and mounts are double checked Zeiss with tikka optilock. all tight and never loosen up. I have swapped out the scope with a known accurate scope, no change. I have shot about 60 rounds over a week trying to get figure this thing out.Anyone else s run hot like this?
