Still no more accurate.
I just cleaned my gun after 500 rounds to see if the copper equilibrium theory was bs and added a bipod instead of using front sand bags. Lumley recoil lug, have tried all kinds of loads with my 130gr sst. Bought a proper torque driver and torqued everything to spec. My groups are still erratic. 1″ isn't bad but sometimes they are 1 1/2″ at 100 yards. That's still a dead deer/moose at 300 but I'm just wondering if there are other easy things I can do to improve accuracy, yet keep the rifle light.
I read somewhere here that somebody torqued the (plastic) bottom metal to 50 in.lbs. Should I do this or do I risk cracking the plastic?
I was watching a guy with a heavier 700 shoot on the same bench as mine yesterday. Hi gun barely moved when he shot it. Is my .270win lite too lite??? It does jump quite a bit as I loose sight of target every time I shoot.
Someone also mentioned just seating the bullet to factory spec instead of getting as close to the lands as possible so I've reseated all my rounds to see if that makes a difference.
Any tips greatly appreciated.
