Recently I bought a Rem 700 SPS Tactical in .223 to hunt fox. My question has to do with types of ammo and bullet weight.
The gun has a 20 in heavy barrel on it and I was shooting Wolf 62 grain rounds. I know that isn't the best ammo but my groups at 100 yards are hoooorrible! Theres no rhyme or reason to where it shoots next. One shot itll be close to dead on, the next off by an inch or more in any direction. Im shooting from a bipod and also just a bench rest. Im not the best shot by any means but I can group shots better then this with my 300 mag! So theres no reason I shouldnt be able to do the same/better with this thing.
Its got a 1 in 9 twist I believe. What do you guys thinks the problem? Taking out all weather factors. You think its ammo?? I heard people say something about the barrel not being free floating anymore once you put it on the bipod but still.........you think it would make that much a difference??
If its ammo thats the culprit what grain would someone use in this size gun. I dont wanna go out buyin all sorts of ammo if none of them are any better then the other, whats why I figured Id ask first.
