The comment still applies.....a clean, cold bore shot will be different with every weapon.
This ain’t toos, we don’t bust others’ balls for straying off topic especially when the post is relevant to the topic
If you are using the same ammo or handloads, and it is a hunting rifle it’s worth noting were the cold bore shot goes. Might mean the difference between meat in the freezer and hamburgers on the way home.
I just want to point out that on every factory rifle I have ever owned the cold bore shot especially the first one or 2 or 3 on a clean factory rifle tube does have a different POI that follow on shots some more that others. This does not have to be the case on a custom rifle. I have many sporters including my competition BR 1k rifles that the first shot on a clean cold bore are insignificant. So much so that when hunting I do not worry about having a fouling shot or a cold bore. It all has to do with the hand loaded ammunition and how the rifle has been set up or built. The point is that it does not have to be that way. Of course there is a significant cost difference in a factory rifle and one that is built from the ground up to be this way. Here is a picture of one of my sporters that at 300 yards my sight in zero distance the difference at that range is about .4 which to me is no big deal.
Im thinking the barrel heating up after the first round makes the group print higher.
This is from a fouled bore and off a rest.
I will get one in the bullseye,then 7 about 2'' higher into a group of 1''.
Trying to get them all into the same group.
