OK, I'm willing to admit it might be me. I am having accuracy issues with most handis above 223. My 223 and down, all shoot great. My 243 up, I cant get good groups out of. I dont think its a flinching issue because I can shoot my bolt rifles upto 300 ultra just fine, heres my standard, 1.5" is accepatble and 1" makes me happy, these are assumming I can do it fairly consistantly. I am no competative shooter just a hunter and plinker. As some of you know I have been fighting 2 243's and a 270 alot so heres what I did. I traded them for a brand new 243 standard with new rings and scope. I cleaned it real good and shot it. about 2"-2.5" group I o-ringed the forestock. no signifigant change. than I lapped the barrel, and had a gunsmith do the trigger for me its now a very crisp 2.25lbs with no creep or overtravel. I havent shot this yet. Heres my question is trigger follow through more important on a handi than on a bolt gun? if so how do you shoot a handi differantly? are there any other things I should do differantlt on a handi to get good results?
