Tench, thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, this is not "a few stray shots"... in fact, the groups look like every shot is stray. There is not a single unstray shot amongst them.
Also, since the rifle had been left to wither for 10 years, I recently went through that excercise.
The fact that the rifle has been left unshot for 10 years is enough of an indication that it might need some service...
I did just pull a couple patches through with a solvent, and there was quite a bit of lead residue coming out. We'll see what it does tomorrow.

Oh. Is there a story to that? Or is he just Generally Unspecified Silly?
Nick Murphy did one of my Njr, but i dont think he takes on new work.
John Ostler did the other one i had, but hates working on them
Riiiight. Is anyone working on these rifles today? I mean, it's not like I can walk out the door and buy me a secondhand EV2 or a new FTP900.
Why not, you ask?
Because I shoot bleedin' cackhanded, that's why!
(plus it's not like I have a wad of money lying around waiting to be spent...)
