Hey Benelli fans!
Long time sbe 2 shooter when I was 16 (14 years ago) I got an sbe 2 and an R1 in .300 win for moose.
Over the years I have purchased many other bolt actions and become fairly proficient with rifles (usually no issue shooting moa at 100 yards off a bag).
That brings me to my R1, I have booked an elk hunt in BC this fall and my R1 HATES 180 grain bullets I’ve tried cheap blue box, Nosler partition, Barnes, accubonds and I can’t get this thing to group better then 4” at 100 yards, I put 150’s in it and I’m back to 1-1.5” groups.
Anyone else experience this with the R1 .300 mag? I can’t figure it out and don’t want to keep spending tons of money on boxes of 20 bullets to shoot 3 in a 4-5” group.
I guess shooting 150’s isn’t the end of the world but I would prefer 180’s.
