my 243 cal. I got really to shoot

I had this gun for about a year or so and it shot A.O.K. but never gave me outstanding group but decent.
I was thinking in selling it and maybe go with the t/c venture or the marlin XS7 to replace it.I would say it is a finny Keen barrel always with a clean bore it will throw flyer's about 6" over center.
I tried a few weeks back not to clean the bore after a range session:I would worked out great the flyer's are ending but the group were around 2" at the 100yd target.I was talking with a shooting Buddie that lent me his neck sizer die only and it did correct the problem.I was out yesterday and 5 shots croup just under 1/2".
I did save a few bucks no need for another rifle this one is a keeper.I must of went threw 100.00 bucks in powder and bullet I am lucky I do reload .

Re: my 243 cal. I got really to shoot

NICE,I've always wondered if the neck sizer dies made much differance sounds like they might be worth the investment.
By the way what loads are you shooting? I just got a 24" fluted barrel last year for christmas,the only loads I had time to work up so far over the summer were 58 grain Vmax's I just bought some 100 grain hornaday sp today gonna try to work up a load for it for Deer season. Good luck with your NICE setup
