Stringing

What are some of the causes of horizontal stringing. Normally stays at 1/2" at 50 but on occasion I get a few groups out to 3/4" and always a horizontal string to the right. About 2 out of 20 5 shot groups. Has all the goodies .920 bbl floated, pillar bedded, Nikon 24x scope Z-rings, KSA thumbhole stock 1 lb trigger, etc, etc, All off bags stock only contact. Kinda has me wondering. O it's a 10/22 Ruger, or was before all the mods. Bought bare receiver and went from there.

Thumbhole stock. # 1 cause of weirdness! When you put your thumb thru that hole you activate muscles , grip muscles, that are hard to control. Try laying your thumb passively along the side of the stock instead of thru the hole.

I agree with Thumbhole stocks having to much hand contact. Set up a 200 yard target with your 24x scope on solid bags and watch your heartbeat through the crosshairs. Now use a spent case or snap cap and see how much movement you have. Squeezing the trigger with thumb on back of trigger guard with as little contact should be the best.

Sounds like a bedding problem.

They make a heavy rifle some what manageable as a walking gun that would be to heavy otherwise but for bench/group shooting I found them to be problematic. More so on cz455ís in particular.
