    sighting

    I have a tikka t3 with burris eliminator 3. sighted it in 3 months ago, went back today and was 1.5 inches high from the first sighting in. The only thing I have done is removed the stock/cleaned and been transported in boot of car with no case. Could have any of these put that out..?

    This is from today.. new to this sorry. so the diamond in the centre is 20mm square, Every other box is the same, done at 100 yards is this acceptable or should the holes be tighter in the diamond together ?

    They all killed the deer.
    Tighter is better but not entirely nessacary.

    I'd move it three clicks left. But at 100 it's dead deer.

    If you are new to shooting then probably this is most of it.
    If you are unsure get someone who regularly shoots their own rifle into one ragged hole to shoot yours.

    sighting

    Were they fired in any sequence? Fired to allow the barrel to not get too hot?
    Experience is the only teacher mate, some of these grumpy assholes have shot thousands of rounds and Its the first shot that counts.

    How did it group three months ago? I would have thought it should be a much smaller group, my cheap ruger American is less than an inch at 100

    Sent from my workbench
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    Would suggest trying different ammo if you wanted it more accurate than that.
