Ok here's the short story.
First my setup is a Remington 700ML with Leupold bases and rings and BSA Classic 3-12x50 scope. I'm shooting #209 caps and 125grs of Triple 7 powder (actual powder not pellets) pushing a 245gr powerbelt aero-tip bullet. Ok now the gun was boresighted when the scope was put on.
Here's what happened when we tried to sight it in at the range:
1st shot- at 50 yds 8in low and 7in left- made adjustments
2nd shot-at 50 yds 3in low and 1in left- made adjustments
3rd shot- at 50 yds dead level but 3in to the left- made adjustments
4th shot- at 50 yds dead level but 6in left (think turned wrong way after last shot) made adjustments
5th shot- at 50 yds touching upper right of 1/2inch bullseye no adjustments
6th shot- at 100 yds not on paper no adjustments
7th shot- at 100 yds not on paper no adjustments
8th shot- back at 50 yds 2in low and 1in left no adjustments
9th shot- at 50yds 2in low and 1 1/2in right made adjustments
10th shot-at 100yds 6in low and 3in right made adjustments
11th shot- at 100 yds not on paper
After that I was about ready to throw it in the river. I have heard that these were'nt good ML's but it's what I have for now. I was also told by a buddy to try hornady sabots. He said his ML flung powerbelts all over the place. So any advice on getting this thing to sight with this or any projectile/powder combo or whether I should just go get another ML would be helpful. Thanks
