I bought a Lyman Deerstalker last year and spent a lot of time at the range getting used to it. I wanted to ask advice before i hunt with it this year. It consistently hits left on the first shot. I usually clean it every 3 shots at the range. the 2nd and 3rd are usually more centered. I think it may be a breaching issue because if it was fouling i probably wouldnt be so consistently left. It could also be shooter error but i am left handed and usually hit right. Any suggestions are appreciated..thanks
It isn't unusual for a gun to shoot the first cold clean shot off a bit. A clean bore offers different resistance to the PRB sliding through the bore. Barrels do change point of aim slightly as they heat up from firing. The only thing you can do is shoot the gun cold & clean, letting it cool off between shots and loading. Or, use Kentucky windage.
