Hi Don,

where do you hunt in the US? Do you hunt only with modern guns or also traditional with ML?

Hi... I was gone for a while, ..yes, the Rifle shoots the first shot up,...and right... then settles down for the next shots... Will oil in the Bbl. cause this?? I have notice this "flyer" effect in other rifles while trying to work up a load.. Bob

LoL I noticed noone answered you. YES oil in the barrel will cause a flier. Always run a dry patch before you shoot to clean any excess oil out. And in answer to an unasked question you have, some rifles do perform better after a fouling shot even if there was no oil present. Mostly its from barrles with a bit more wear on them so the "fouler" tightens it up a tad.

Hi... I just got back from Wyoming... I finally got a shot on the last day of the hunt and took a large doe mule deer.... 261 (measured) yards...one shot..high shoulder.... she didn't move from that spot... it was a 140 Sierra with R-22 powder... groups about 1.5" at 200 yds....
I hope to have a chance next year to use it again... Bob thanks to all for the input.....
