New Member with a SS Tikka 22-250 Lite and Redfeild 3x9x50
My first post here and i am sure not my last so i live in The Arctic Iqaluit,Nunavut,Canada
and i have bought a used Tikka 22-250 SS Lite and purchased a new Redfeild 3x9x50 scope with Burris Grand slam rings,and weaver 2 PC bases.My question is when sighting in my rifle at 100yards i shoot a fowling shot and it goes where it wants too? and then let barrel cool a couple Min's and i can shoot 2 bullets touching each other but than the 3rd shot will either miss the target all together or be 5 inches left right or up and down no particular pattern? i have checked the rings are tight and bases as well action screws are tight,checked the barrel for straightness it isn't bent from what i can tell looking at rifling and a light the rifling looks concentric now i have cleaned it and cleaned it it is very shiny almost looking brand new in barrel i have taken the gun apart and noticed the recoil lug is a little damaged but surly not from recoil? maybe over tightening the screws? please help it doesent matter what i do trying to hit bullseye at 100yards dead on so that i can set it for 3.5inch above bull for hunting here mostly seal hunting out of a boat i need help very frustrating chasing bullets. I will post pics of targets later and of the recoil lug. Also do my sighting in with no wind maybe 3 or 4 km an hr.Thanks for any help
