Looks pretty good to me. What distance are you shooting at?

Let's see a pic of your rig.

Looks good. Is that your own shooting range? Right out back?

The ammo you are shooting will not give you the best accuracy out of your rifle. Try either Eley Tenex or Match, or Lapua Midas Plus, and lot test. The only ammo I see that some benchresters have success with is the Center X. The bottom row of Geco shot better than the top row of Geco. This was probably due to the residual lube in the barrel from the Center X that was shot just before shooting the Geco. Did you clean the barrel each time before switching brands? I don`t know if your rear bag placement was just for the photo or not. If you were shooting with the rear bag that far forward, try sliding it back some. If that teflon tape was on the stock when you bought the rifle, that`s where the previous owner placed the rear bag.

There are some promising results among the groups posted.

You say it's the first time out with the rifle. It has a tuner. Was a tuner setting established prior to shooting this time or is it a work in progress?

Very nice, a rifle like that is going to demand to be fed the best ammo you can acquire. The tuner appears to be modified, would you mind taking a close-up of it? Also interested to know the barrel length and diameter.

To answer some questions and comments.

I used the Geco to get used to the gun at the start and to finish the target also to just see how good cheap ammo worked.The blazer was shot because my friend insisted on seeing how bad it would be.

I did clean between the Geco and SK but not the SK and C-X.

The tuner was set by previous owner for Center-X.

Rear bag was at the tape when shooting,and the front rest was closer to the window with the tuner out side the window.

The barrel is a 24" Lilja .900 Dia. with a Don Smith custom chamber .
tuner looks like it might be a JNL PRX III Tuner with 1 inch extension I will try to get some pics but it may be a few days.

I do have a Protektor front bag on the way.

Thanks for the input and keep it cumming dont worry about upsetting me, I am the yoyo that shot blazers in the gun

FYI, if the tuner setting was the one for this rifle setup it should shoot just about any good ammo.
and results would be from the quality of the ammo and not because the tuner was set for any particular ammo.
a tuner doesn't know what brand you are shooting.

Hi-NV Shooter.
Thanks for the info, I am new to tuners.
Do velocity differences for different ammo affect tune?
