Be sure the scope is rock solid just a little flex will cause those results I have seen it too

I got an email from Rock River Arms that recommended Sierra Match King 175 grain. Seems like everyone is out of that right now (Midway, Bass Pro, Sportmans Warehouse). Will get on the waiting list. My dad has a bunch of reloading stuff and I may give that a try too.

This is something else I have worried about. I have a Sight Optics scope. I mean its not top of the line but its not a flea market scope either. I did research before buying and reciews were good. I know to really get oit there im gonna have to drop some more money. I have been looking at some Trijicon scopes I just not in a place to drop 3 or 4Gs.

The best scope in a poor mount is recipe for misery

Please don't take this personally but, have you ever shot for groups before? What's the best you've even done?

In my personal opinion, shooting is limited by the shooter's ability, then the gun, lastly the ammo.

Also when I'm referring to gun, that includes all hardware, like optics....ever think your optic and mount may not hold zero with a 308's recoil?

I don't take anything personal unless directed right at me. I have shot good groups with my AR and 30-30. Thats why this 308 has got me baffled. It was so bad I left the range went back home got my AR came back to the range just to make sure it wasn't me. I checked mounts to make sure they weren't coming loose, chked bipod to make sure it wasn't loose, made sure chk plates and eye relief with scope are good.

I was shooting off a Led Sled rest and am quite disappointed with the accuracy. Any suggestions on trouble shooting would be helpful.

1. regardless of ammo, there shoulda been some kind of
grouping, whether 2 or 3 rounds or more;
2. how long is the barrel?;
3. how far didju start your shootin from? (start @ 25 yds);
4. 50mm scope? make damn sure the bell is not touchin
rifle;
5. are your scope rings adequate size for that scope?;
6. make sure the scope ring screws are tight;
7. make sure the scope ring, base screws are tight;
8. make sure forearm DOES NOT have any undue play;
9. make sure your pistol grip HAS NO play in it;
10. make sure stock DOES NOT have any undue play;
11. didju follow, to a 'T,' the sight in procedure for the
BDC???
