Hello! I was wondering anyone else has had accuracy problems with the Savage MK2?

I have been up antil recently been able to shoot within a 1" group for 10 rounds and now I am barely able to maintain a a basic 4" grouping with flyers and everything, really hoping to get my riffle back to what it was, has only one got any suggestions.

Currently running Whinchester Bushman 37.5/1290 Fps was maintaining within a 1" grouping but now it's all over the shop, any help will be appreciated. I have tried other ammunition and brands and still the same crappy results

Please help!!

What are you doing to clean the barrel? I had similar issues and after I cleaned the lead out of the barrel my groups went back to being good again.

Simple stuff first. Check to see everything is screwed down tight. Perhaps your scope has lost it's marbles ?

One inch; at what distance ?

JB Bore Bright paste might help smooth it out.

Check your scope mounts. Then clean it. Then if it`s still screwy, try a different scope.

If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

It's probably because you're on the other side of the Earth and your bullets are trying to fall off the planet!!    Big Grin

These emos are on my iPad. It's a face with sunglasses on.

Evidently they don't show up very well on your pc.

My pc has much better ones.

90% of the time all I get is hollow boxes...  When they do show they are microscopic in size...

Yeah, I had lots of problems with feeding and accuracy from the two I tried. First one made a couple trips back, then had to wait on a production run to get a replacement. Replacement made a trip back. Replacement was sold off after the last trip to Savage.

Anyhow, if it's floated and clean of both chamber and bore, the only thing left is to experiment with action screw tension. I like Kroil for cleaning rimfires. Best of luck!
