Does the rifle have an issue, or is it just a 2 MOA gun?
Rifle is a CZ-527 Carbine in 7.62x39 with a Burris 2-7x32 Timberline compact scope. Ammo is Hornady 123Gr ZMAX . (pics of the setup coming soon)
So I have run EVERY soft point 'hunting' ammo that I could find, and this is the best I could get. From a solid rest, with the set trigger, I could put 2 rounds close, and the 3rd shot would open it up to right at 2 inches. And it was always the 3rd shot that opened the group.
So, do I just call it good? The problem is, sometimes, there is that long shot... Do I put on my Captain Ahab hat and start chasing 1MOA?
1) Call it good. Keep it for short range hunting.
2) The 2 close shots, with one spread out makes me think it could be barrel bedding. As the barrel gets a bit of heat, it opens the group. Float the barrel and see what happens.
3) See if a smith can crown the muzzle a hair and calm the groups down.
4) Rebarrel to .50 Beowulf :D
