Default Trouble with hornady?

Preface: I shoot hornady custom 165sst's in my 300 win., love them, picked up a tikka stnls/laminate in 25-06, put a zeiss on the 300, transferred the leupold to the tikka, bought a few boxes of the superformance sst 117 gr. for the 25-06, after a barrel/scope rough line up at 50 yds, shot twice to get in the x ring at 100 yds, moved out to 200, could not get a 3 shot group closer than 2.75 inches. after several groups, shot it once more at 100, it was perfectly centered and 1.8 in high. I may have to try another brand of ammo, any suggestions as to a fix, it's a beautiful gun that I really want to use. ???????

Funny you say that. I bought some 30-06 165gr SST hornady's today to sight in my new ziess and I was not too impressed with the accuracy. I am going to clean my gun and shoot again tomorrow with a cooler barrel.

Don't shoot we'll in my 7-08. I tried Barnes ttsx and the almost stack at 100. Federal fusions shoot much better than the hornadys also.

Every rifle is different. I have two identical 30-06 bolt guns. They don't like the same ammo at all... not even close. I have to put different color tape on the ammo and rifles.... When I go to the range or hunting I have to make sure I match the "colors"....LOL

When at the range "testing" you must start each group with a cold barrel. Also you need to make sure the barrel is cleaned every 20 shots or so. Otherwise you're going to get one result with it fouled and another with it clean.

And..... in the real world of "hunting" how the rifle "groups" isn't near as important as putting the first shot out of a "cold" barrel into the same 1-2" area every time.

And.... as the outside temperature changes your point of impact with that first shot is also going to change so you need to sight your rifle in as close to the same weather conditions that you'll be hunting in as possible
