Hello, I am brand new to this forum and am looking for some opinion to those more experienced than I am. I have an R1 in 30.06, and it is well sighted in and hit 1 to 1 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards. Love it. But, I just bought a new R1 in .300 Win Mag and can't seem to get tight groups. I tried Fed. Coreloct, the Winchester Power Point (if I recall) and some cheaper ammo., all 180 gr. I get 5 to 7 inches high for a few shots, bring my scope down, and then low or back high. I have put perhaps 60 to 80 rounds through it, cleaned and cleaned and still no consistency. The first shot is always high, then I hit close to zero, then the floaters again. The inaccurate shots always vary up and down. I have a new gunsmith installed brake on it. Is this a break in issue, shall I got o 165 gr., shall I keep shopping around for better ammo fit? It seems like the longer I shoot, the worse it gets--is this a hot barrel? Any advice appreciateg--thank you!
Has anyone thought of mounting a short picatinny rail to the end of the forearm stock to allow you to mount a removable AR style bipod? I'm wondering if there's enough room inside there to allow you to through bolt the rail, and how long a rail/how spaced the holes should be to handle the shock of a 300 win mag without cracking the forearm. My only other thought is to buy another forearm (possibly the wood one) and permanently mount the bipod to that one so that I'm not forced to always have it on the gun. Thanks!
