    308 accuracy

    I have a certain .308 win semi auto rifle that I shot for the first time recently. Accuracy is bad. Like 4-5" groups at 50 yards.
    I even fed it some Hornady Match ammo and it didn't get any better.

    One thing I notice is the fired cases have a bulge where the neck meets the shoulder. Its rough too, Like the chamber reamer had trouble centering or something. Is there any hope for this ?

    I tried to load a pic but the attacher/uploader thingy just locks up.

    That's like saying "my automobile doesn't run good, what's wrong with it?".

    More info, please.

    that's rough looking,,

    I'll assume you've cleaned the chamber,, but that is a nasty looking case

    Ever shot it further?
    I ask because I wonder if it would keyhole at a longer distance.
