Default Blackdiamond..

Using 2 plugs or 100gr of pirodex and a 240gr XTP Hornady's groops well at 50 and then @ 100 and 150 moves right about 6"-10" respectively. Tried 150 gr and same result. Think I get better performance out of strait powder (pirodex FFG)but didn't get to revert to it tonight. Iron sights (R) is cranked far left to compensate but almost like its spiraling funny? Will go back Tuesday to retry but need for NH hunt this coming weekend. 5-7MPH crosswind at time, would that push that that far?

Are the groups good at 100 and 150, but just printing to the right?? Are you sure you aren't slightly right at 50 yards?

black diamonds have a heavy trigger pull. you might just be pulling it to the right. this would cause the difference at 100 and not 50 yds. i have a old hawken that did the same thing. when someone else shot the smoke pole it did not do it. have someone else shoot the rifle.

AT 50 YRDS SIGHT IN DEAD ON ABOVE THE BULLSEYE AT 2.75" THIS WOULD PUT YOU DEAD ON AT 100YDS.
