You'd get the scope set so you could knock an old shottie cartridge all over that sand bullet trap but on the following Saturday you'd be hitting 3 inches wide.
Hmmm...well, for the sake of my sanity I'm going to wishfully imagine that it's no longer a problem.
Seriously though, whenever I zeroed at the BSC (I'm talking about the S400 here), I never found any problems having to rezero later.
Anyway, I went tonight. Taped a bubble to my scope's elevation turret and tried with the stripper on and off.
The problems may have been exacerbated by cant but the stripper/MFC is definitely causing irregular but frequent displacement to the right.
Without the stripper, in the end, the Pro T managed a couple of groups at 55 yards of about half an inch and one about a third of an inch (admittedly that last one was a group of 4 with me messing up for the final shot).
So, the current stripper/MFC is history. I'll certainly need something though. The amount of muzzle flip caused me a real problem at first until I sorted out a stable solid shooting position. It's more of a problem when shooting off shooting bags. When shooting HFT getting a grip on the fore-end is easier but I'd rather not have to take the fore-end in a death grip every time I take a shot!
So anybody got any recommendations for a maker of MFC\Airstrippers.
Pete Dutton was my first thought (be nice to have a matching sterling silver MFC/Airstripper to go with the trigger but I'm not that flush!
), followed by UKNeil (Anybody got a number, since he spends most of his time online in the lair of the 'beast' I'd have trouble contacting him that way!
So I'm feeling better about the Pro T now.
