Problems with my new 700 Varmint
I'm new to the forum, but there seems to be good info here so i thought that i'd post my question. I bought a new 700 ADL Varmint. I can not for the life of me get it shoot a group. Both my brother and I have tried, we are experienced shooters, so I'm sure it's the rifle. I have tried two different scopes, two sets of mounts, check the tightness on all mount screws and the bottom bolts also, they all seem to be set right. A little about what the rifle is doing... When the scopes first go on, I fire a round and make the necessary adjustment. The second round will go in the expected area of the adjustment. But the following next few rounds move up and right (up to 5" at 100 yds). After going down to the 100 yard mark and looking closer at the target and then returning (rifle has cooled), the strike of the round goes back down towards the original intended area and moves back up and right on the following shots. So my thoughts are that it has something to do with the cheap stock. But i'm not certain and would love some feedback. If i am correct, how is Remington about fixing this problem. I know the adl is not best rifle they make, but it is the same barreled action just on a cheaper stock. 5 MOA is certainly not acceptable and I'm sure they realize that. Any comments would be appreciated, let me know if you need some more info to help my diagnose this, i'd be happy to provide it.
