so i have this remington 700 .17 remington that was given to me by my grandfather for my birthday about 10 years ago, well ive killed alot of things with that gun but lately it has taken a turn for the worst. so i took it out to shoot some rock chucks with my dad this summer but was surprised when it was shooting close to a foot high, we thought maybe someone dropped it so we tried to sight it in but to no avail, we took off the old 2.5x7 weaver and put on a brand new leupold 3x9 vxII but still no results.we then decided there must be a ding in the barrel somewhere. but i did some thinking, could i have burned the barrel out? my reloads are the same recipe that have been shot out of it for 20 years, but they are moving the 25 grain bullet in exess of 4000 fps.... opinions on whats going on?
