    Have you checked the scope mount or tried a different scope?

    So according to your first post you've only ran one powder in the rifle (H1000).....

    I think the problem is blatantly obvious ;)

    Low ES and SD don't mean anything if it won't shoot the powder. Just because the speeds are close on loads doesn't mean they have to be accurate.

    I start with multiple powders loaded up initially, then eventually narrow it down to one powder by process of elimination using only the powders that show promise with group size, group shape, speed consistency, and POI. It all matters in the accuracy equation. Don't know how many times I've seen powders give amazing speed ES, but would never put a group on the target that was worth a shit. Sometimes certain powders just will not shoot in a rifle no matter how hard you try.

    Seen posts like this so many times I didn't even really want to say anything. When the authors finally try different powders they are amazed at how accurate the rifle has become...

    Guys,

    I'm new to the forum and was reading this post. If it was stated, I completely missed any mention of what the twist was for the rifle in question....
