  • How can I get my 20 guage Remington 11/87 Sportsman Deer Gun with a rifled cantilever scope mount barrel to shoot consistent 3"

    How can I get my 20 guage Remington 11/87 Sportsman Deer Gun with a rifled cantilever scope mount barrel to shoot consistent 3" or 4" bulls eye? My scope is a 3x9x40 lenpold varix II. My amo is Winchester 260 grain saboted high velocity rifled slugs. I've checked the scope out on another rifle and it is okay as well as scope rings & screws are tight. Problem: I've sighted in for 1"high at 100 yards. However I can't get consistent 3 shot groups. I only shoot 3 shots and allow the gun to cool. The shots go as follows: 1st shot is perfect bulls eye, 2nd-3" to 5" high left or right, 3rd-5" to 8" high left or right. Not always the same pattern, 1st may be high or low off, and 2nd hit in the kill zone and 3rd can be high or low off by 5"-8". This has cost me missed and wounded deer. What is the answer to curing this problem? Thank you.
