I am getting some nasty flyers working up loads for my 30.06. every load from start at 47.5gr of IMR4064 to 49.5gr is shooting two nice shots within a 1'' square and then one flyer that is anywhere between 1.5-2'' away. At 51gr I get a 1 3/4 group in a line with no flyer. Then back to a flyer at 51.5. At 52gr the group includeing the flyer is at 2inches with the two close shots touching. The bullet is 150gr HDY SP,Fed 210 Primers. COl is 3.225,at a COl of 3.235 the bearing surface is on the lands. the only thing done to the rifle is a floated barrel. I haven't ruled out the rifle and I haven't ruled out me. when testing loads I use a good shoulder pad so i can shoot comfy all day without starting to pull. The flyers are not to one direction each time,there low and to the right or left or high to the right or left. This is my first experience with flyers. What can be done to correct the problem? What could be the problem??
