As promised, here are some pics from today's range session. I was shooting at the 100 yard berm on a rather windy day.
Most of the holes on the white aren't mine. Seriously.

I was shooting from the prone position on a rather uncomfortable cardboard mat. Maybe next time I'll wear some elbow pads.

A view from the shooting line.

I hope the wind was blowing about a hundred miles an hour. It looks like you must have had some complete misses too.

you have got to have some kind of scope mounting issue... That group is unacceptable... In any rifle, and yes, even if the wind was blowing 100 mph as mentioned above. Here is the reason it wasn't only the wind. There is a TON of vertical inconsistencies as well as horizontal inconsistencies. Check your scope mounting setup, then check your scope, etc. There is NO reason for that gun not to shoot into at least the 10 ring with factory loads.

Actually I ran a ballistics calculator

at 100 yards, a 100mph wind would only move the bullet (3250fps55gr.305bc) about 13.5" yes, that is a lot at 100 yards, but like I said above, if that were the case there would be majorly horizontal strings, not just a clusterf*ck like that.
