    At first site I did not like the look of the Stock or the way the rifle feels as I brought it to bear on the target.
    None the less I decided to keep it and was excited to shoot it with my older brother at his gun club. I shot this rifle once before today but did not document the evidence so it is really moot. I was shooting better that day but can only tell you that not prove it.
    Today I did not shoot so well and the results are plain to see. With the Remington rounds I was all over and placed 6 shots randomly just above the bulls eye. I did manage to get a much smaller grouping with the Federal Rounds and then went out to 200 yards and a Gong. I was amazed that I shot better at 200 than 100 for some reason 10 rounds 5 more of each and made the bell ring 9 out of 10 times

    On the left is an Image of the Target that I shot the Remington Factory loads on the Right is the Federal Ammunition Target.
    Again I’m well aware my shooting technique is atrocious and I think the Rifle shoots better than I do as indicated by the three shot pattern on the target on the right. Hopefully with more practice I can show you three shot groups that are much tighter.

    I've been moderately interested in the 4x4 lately. So with Remington Core-Lokt 100 gr., and the rifle in that clamp, those 6 shots were that spread out? I might be cooling on the 4x4. :uhoh: Of course, I know nothing about using clamps like that. Any chance it isn't secure enough, or anything like that?

    That is all my crappy shooting technique. look at the Federal image and notice I settled down after the first two shots and managed that three round group.
    My nephew got a better group the first time out with it but I have no pics, he put 3 inside a dime with the same gun with both types of ammo.

    Core-Lokt isn't known for tight groups

    did you see the targets? i'm skeptical.

    A member here tested about 6 factory ammo types in his .30-06 Savage a while ago and the Remington Core-Lokt gave much better groups than stuff that was much more expensive.

    Here is the thread...looks to me like the only round that bested the Core-Lockts were Match ammo

    I was with him when he shot them. He was always a good shot but Marine Corps training made him a really good shot.
