Was out this morning and im realizing i need a new bench setup my ghetto one works fine for just plinking. But trying to sight in and test ammo it isnt up to snuff. Getting 2 inch groups at 60 isnt that good. Those 2 wild ones are me not being steady enough. Hunting wise it'll be fine.My membership to my hunting club starts before squirrel and im just doing ground hogs till the and a 2 inch groups out to 75 or so is fine for them. You can see what the gun wants to do with the 3 in the middle. Forgot to add those are 3 inch circles for the target.

Oh now that i have my phone back from my dads house after i stopped by for lunch. I can put my shooting setup on here. I need a better scope on it already. Just really want more magnification but my budget cant pull more than 200 at most if i squeeze my wallet.

Your rifle should be putting the holes no more than a cloverleaf group at that distance. Seriously.

My HMR will and does put them through the same hole ( witnessed by a gunsmith ) at 100 meters. I have the heavy blued barrel.

How is your trigger set, heavy? If so, adjust in to the lightest touch you can, for starters.

You should consider the bore is not broken in yet.

 I don't know about your scope. I have a BSA 6X-24X on my Savage 93. It's not expensive but serves me well.

I know it isnt broken in yet. And its not the rifle doing that its me and my crappy rest. I was looking at bsa but i dont know about the quality but the price is about right. I might be able to squeeze a bipod into my budget this week if i can find a ok one at an ok price.

  O0 Yeah on crappy rest killing your groups, fuzz! I bought that BSA scope at wallyworld for $120 and found out later much better deals online.  :shock: :sad:

I don't have a pod on that rifle, would not fit my needs for squirrel hunting. And it would add weight to an already heavy rifle. I think you would be better off putting that pod money towards a scope. I must say I am very happy with the BSA scope.

The accuracy of the HMR is absolutely amazing.

My .17 WSM BMAG is a light carry, less than 4 1/2 pounds with the Tupperware stock. I have a 6.5X-20X on it.

Have you been out again with that great rifle?
