Well Tiger with 5pages of posts some the best info you could ever receive and ammo costs and still no satisfaction mate no offence but I would be seeing a GS and get it sorted if it worries you so much he will scope the bore , look at it and pretty much be able to tell you what is possibly wrong with it
As everybody on here knows it's fairly hard to problem find with not having eyes on contact with the rifle :?
I do hope you get it sorted soon without too much cost and hassles :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
If you do prefer to use 180gr then focus on them and the barrel twist and powder if all else fails :thumbsup:
Cheers :thumbsup:

Note I had a 25-06 was supposed to shoot moa or under , never did with any factory ammo not even sako ammo the brand they used to test it
you'll probably find few new rifles perform as told by sellers none of mine have :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Good news.
Winchester Australia have looked over my data and won’t the rifle back for testing acknowledging they “it doesn’t look good”.
I’ve taken on board almost everything that has been recommended from the good ppl on here and I’m still not thrilled with the groupings.
If they test it and advise I’m wrong - then it’s still going to be cheaper / less frustrating than chasing it...
Again - sincerely appreciate everyone’s help and advice...I’m in debt a few beers for if and when I cross paths.
Cheers.

I would be looking at the Berger 185 Jugernaughts or 185 OTM actually the same bullet confirmed by Berger it is a target bullet with Hunting characteristics (it kills well) it will certainly shoot well in 308's its known to be an easy to tune bullet.

I’m dying to know now...gun, scope, mount, bullets...wtf. And if they do manage to pull Moa off, I want to know all details....bullets, etc.
My mate is saying sucktin, told you to buy a tikka, but I had / have faith in Steyr...my other steyr is brilliant and the tooling on the bolt is at least equal to my tikka.

Guns can be a bitch, Tassie. At the moment I have almost finished a complete overhaul of Black Beauty because it shot so bad last weekend. Accuracy has been deteriorating week by week leading me to start from scratch all over again. Have discovered that I am not as smart as I thought I was %$#&*@ :(

You must be ex army Grandad, my only experience with Steyr was in the army and I was not a fan. Shot worse than my old sweet M16. I am sure this Steyr is very different.

My other 223 steyr man licker could put a bullet into the barrel of this 06 at 100....it was the predominant reason I bought this one. Even though my tikka is just as accurate, that rifle was “built” by those that no a lot more than I, so stock rifle vs stock rifle - the steyr was at least equal...and hey - no one I know ever wants to borrow a rifle called a man licker lol

It will be interesting to find out what the prob is Tas, it certainly be frustrating when things just don't quite match up to the hype.

Let us know how it all goes.

mate i thought black beauty was a horse ? :) :drinks: :thumbsup:


A horse of a different colour bigrich ;)
Only a little misleading :) So called because it's black all-over; synthetic stock, blued steel and it's a beauty because the 16.5" barrel makes it so cute :D
