Seems like every time my 30-30 seems to be a little bit off of it's normal performance, I get another shooter to test it and he always shoots a couple of 5 shot groups in the ones. Then they always say something like " it's not the gun, it's you". The first time I ever shot in Raton, I had not fired a round in competition for 8 years. It was test and tune Friday, and I could not shoot a group to save my life. I had already told Mike Cordes that the gun really shoots, but seems to be a problem now, so he asked me to load five rounds for him. He easily shot a nice mid one group, and said the gun seems fine to him. That weekend I placed second in the HV grand.
