I travelled up to the camp to hunt turkey (no turkeys harmed today) this morning and to site in a new Rem 260 that I picked up over the winter. Rifle is a Sako 85 Hunter with laminated stock and topped with a Swaro 3-10x by 42mm scope.
Rifle was brand new and unfired. First shot at 30 yards was 2.5 inches left and 2 inches high from where I wanted it. Made an initial adjustment on the scope and fired 6 more rounds at 30 yards. Shooting was done from a standing position off of shooting sticks. Made a minor adjustment based on the 6 shot group and moved out to 100 yards.
Fired one 3 shot group at 100 yards off of the sticks. I site all my rifles off of sticks as this is a more realistic hunting scenario (for me) than a bench/bags and as I don't target shoot much (except with the 22LR) I don't see any point in using a bench/bags unless I am trying to troubleshot (pardon the pun) a problem.
Results of the 3 shot 100 yard group (8th, 9th, and 10th round ever fired from this rifle):
Grouping was just over 0.5 inch. Pretty sure this one is a keeper. I packed it up at that point as I didn't see any need to waste any more ammo. Ammo was Nosler Trophy Grade shooting 125 grain partitions. I have a 100 rounds (now 90) of these cartridges and the plan is to hunt with them and than use the brass to reload in the future.
