I went out to the shooting range today and started out shooting very well. My first 6 shots were all 1-2 inches from the bullseye. All of a sudden my shots weren't even hitting the target anymore. I was wondering if anyone knew any possible causes for this. My rifle is a Tikka .270 caliber with a simmons whitetail expedition 3x9 power.

Very nice rifle for that inexpensive of a scope. Check all of Your mounting screws to be sure they are tight first. Then if you have a bore sighter check that the reticle responds to the turrets. This will assure that the reticle has not disconnected from the recoil.

Yea while I was cleaning it I noticed that one of the mounting screws was loose. I've had this problem before and found a wrench that fit it and I tightened the hell out of it. Don't know how they became loose again.

Can you use BLUE Loc Tite on the mounting screw to keep it from backing out??
