Remington 141 .35
You know, the one with a spiral magazine and steel buttplate? I'm planning on using one this season. It was my Paps rifle. When I was younger, sighting in meant going to the local strip mine and shooting off the car hood at a box with about 3-4" circle on it about 40yds. If it was close, then it was "on". I killed a 1/2 dozen or so deer with it all at close ranges. As I got older, I bought other rifles of my own, and learned more about shooting and accuracy. Paps old .35 went in the back of the closet. I decided I wanted to carry it this season. New scope and mounts, everything is in working order and all screws are tight. Problem is that I can't seem to get it to do any better than a 6" group at 100yds. Tried a couple different bullets and brands, but nothing seems to do any better than anything else. Is this the best I can expect? I'll still carry it, but I'll obviously only take closer shots. Ideas or opinions?
If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
