Can't explain the large groups, but my Vari-XIII had a similar wandering zero problem. Sent it back to Leopold. So far the repaired scope is good, but I'll never trust the brand as much again.

Never trust a bow under 40 (inches).

BTM,
I didn't have large groups. POI changed after I cleaned the rifle. I was using shooting sticks and not a solid rest so I didn't expect 1 MOA groups. What I got from the whole thing was confirmation on things I've read in a few different publications regarding rifles shooting high once you clean them. I've suspected that this was true, and this experience confirmed it. I was surprise that it took 4 shots to get it back to were it was shooting before I cleaned it.

I hate to disappoint you but generalizing that all rifles shoot high after cleaning is totally wrong.Some rifles will shoot high ,some low some right, some left and some will not change point of impact whether fouled or clean.I hunt with clean barrels as testing has shown that my rifles do not change their point of impact or group size after I have cleaned and dry swabbed them.Your cleaning methods as well as the individual firearm will determine what effect cleaning has on your particular gun.

SJ, thanks for response. Always done that.

I also agree that not all guns fire worse or higher after being cleaned...the old anti of the spoiler round is a myth with most of my rifles.

Not to say some guns are like that, but I think you mentioned you never dry patched the barrel after the oil patch...which is likely the reason for POI change.

stubblejumper,
thanks for the input. I'll keep track of how my other rifles perform in the future. I guess the bottomline for the recreational shooter like myself is always check your rifle before the season starts and you'll avoid any surprises when it comes time to make the shot.
