Rifle won't shoot... did I get a dud?
I recently aquired an H&R single shot in .25-06, which I was excited about because I've always wanted a gun in that caliber. Before I ever shot it, I had a smith install a muzzle break, and he was kind enough to re-crown it for me while he was at it. The gun was already equipped with the Choate stock and forearm, the forearm having been free-floated already.
Two scopes and four flavors of factory ammo later, I still can't hold a decent group to save my life. From what I've read, those H&R single shots are hit or miss as far as accuracy, and I'm starting to think I may have the latter one.
Is there anything mechanical I can look at that may remedy this? Should I look at having someone whip me up some handloads? Should I keep trying, or should I cut my losses and bury it in the safe?
