    Huh?

    If you can't group, then you can't hit. (Except, of course, with the occasional intervention of lady luck.)

    I tightened the action screws on the rifle, (while doing so, dissasembled.)
    Reassembled, cranked the action screws down, cleaned the bore really good, CLP, and this copper remover stuff my stepdad has for it (don't know what it's called, part of the label was missing).

    Please, try shooting some groups at 100 yds. If you're shooting the same group size at 100 yards, we're talking a whole different rifle. Yes, it's possible that your 100 yard groups will be 4x your 25 yd groups or more. But I seriously doubt it. Any "percieved" 25 yard probs may be magnified or diminished at 100 yards. Don't forget that every rifle will have a favorite load and one it hates.

    A Buddy and his Dad bought consecutive serial numbered M700 rifles in .27o Win. One shot Federals (130s) like they were laser beams, and the other hummed with Winchester 150s.
    I'd still like to know how your rifle shoots at 100 yards.

    with multiple different types and grains of ammo. And possibly with someone else behind the trigger, someone you know car really shoot.

    Also, what did you mean by "cranked the action screws down"? How tight exactly?

    Sorry, been away from this postfor a little bit.
    Got everything sorted out now, this rifle shoots pretty decently. Last range trip I had the rifle down to an inch at 150 yards with the addition of a better scope. Still have to take pictures of the groupings because I accidentally left my target board at my buddies where I shoot. He lives about 30 miles out and I have no vehicle right now.

    skinewmexico,
    I don't know of any sniper that would use a rifle that would only shoot 6moa at 100y. That is a 6 inch group. Move out to a safe distance, say 500y, and you are now dealing with a 30 inch group. A sniper is most likely looking at a group of 5 -6 inches at 500y. They don't shoot to injure.
