Help me out if you can.
Morning all. I have a Ruger rear tang safty 74' in 7mm. I started having issues with shooting consistant. I know the gun nor myself is a tack driver. Before I was quite please with 1-11/2 groups at 100 yrds. Last year, When sighting in to make sure I was ok, I would get first shot good, followed by a second shot in either 4-6 inches left, right, up, down. Now if I let it cool completely, one would be ok followed by same issue. This fall I glass bedded and free floated it. checked crown, bolt lugs everything looked ok. replace scope, bases, rings everything. Took it out yesterday same issue. I have changed ammo, and now pretty much eveything I can think of? Is there anything I (inexpensive) I can do? or should I just get rid of it? I would like to avoid spending much money due to the fact that a new gun price and cost to fix this will become parallel quickly. All thoughts and inputs welcome. Thanks in advance.
Go Team 2!!
