I followed instructions n gave it a good scrubbing. After done that had a look down barrel n oh oh some spots I hadn't seen before. Not a lot just a couple. I'm wondering now will it be worth putting some rounds through to confirm that the barrel might have a issue or not? I haven't looked at the bedding yet to see if any issues there but most things from now I'd imagine are going to be a confirmation at a gunsmiths possible re-bedding n at best chopping re-crown and since I'm there threading. I'd say that will depend on where if/any pits are in the barrel n how much I'd have to chop.

I would look to the bedding first. Have you taken the stock off it???. One of the most common problems we come across is seeds and rubbish that are gathered over the years between stock and action or barrel. If the rifle gets wet they swell and cause quite large shooting errors, also if the wood get saturated and dries it will often have a twisting action on the stock causing poor accuracy.

I have just had to re-bed my Sako as the constant wetting and drying of the stock over the years had caused the stock to twist. A worn out barrel is one thing but some light pitting is not a great cause for alarm.[/quote]
I've never had the stock of in the time I've had it so will have a look. Being plastic it shouldn't have warped but will be checking barrel channel. I won't be able to shoot until weekend anyway so it'll give me a chance to have a look.

Being plastic it quite possibly has never been right. Fortunatly it us an easy fix.

I would use better targets to get a consistent aiming point. scale them up ie same target but twice size of 100m @ 200m

I use these ones

Update.....

Cleaned barrel...left a dash of lube in while not using...
Took stock off, barrel is free floated. Cleaned some crud out but not half a forest or anything like that.
Bought some ammo today.
Dry patch through to take lube off... Looking at patch might need to do another scrubbing as a bit dirty. Took out to range a bit breezy (same as last time really). Tried to be consistent shooting position (prone off bipod, hand under butt) and results
