I had my Savage 10 PC barrel chopped down to 16" by GAP, installed a AAC Miter Mount, and took it to the range. 168 grain SMK = 3" groups at 100 yards. Federal Match, Hornady Match, etc = crappy groups (this is from a lead sled).

Never shot the gun before having the barrel chopped down (my fault).

Would it be worth it to run the Tubb's Final Finish through it to see if the groups improve?

I don't think it's me. I can shoot sub-moa groups with my other guns and did the day I took the savage out. I will remove the miter mount and check the crown. Maybe there is something wrong there or maybe they put the miter mount on to tight.

Theres something wrong. PC's are fairly accurate rifles. might check how tight the action screws are..... after you check the crown of course. lol
