    Bedding whats that like?

    have you had the rifle out of the stock?

    One rifle I had did that for a bit, Bedded it and it was fine

    Scope mounts etc worth a check too

    Loosen the action screws sit the rifle vertical so the recoil lug is against the stock bed and re-tighten would be my first move

    Does this statement mean the groups were good, ie no first shot fliers, when your mate shot the rifle?

    Zimmer yes, his first spot on, is there any reason why someone pulls left rather than right
    No never had anything apart, have shot a couple of animals no problem last few months and way back when i shot paper last it was fine

    As you said it was alright for your mate i would suspect its something you are doing, but to be sure give it to someone else for a shot.
