thom2-how fast are you shooting? My omega will open up about 2" on a warm barrel.Usually the 3rd shot. just shoot one time from a clean cold barrel-that is all you will ever need for hunting

Hey Charlie,
There's probably 2 to 3minutes between shots. Just time enough to check the target, swab the barrel, reload and position myself for the next shot. The barrel is warm, but not hot.

I'm doing a little more shot test today. I'll let you know the results.

Just warm is enough to put a shot out of the group for mine. I do not really mind because my 1st shot is always dead on.

Shot again this afternoon.
The first shot (clean cold barrel) was 1" to the left. Next 4 shots 1/2" group. 5 shot group 1 1/4 inch.

Nothing wrong with that group size.Looks like heat was not the problem. If it were my rifle I would zero to the clean cold barrel. I think you will have no problems. Good Hunting
