    Periodically cleaning one's firearms has proven to aid accuracy.

    Shooting ones guns does too but considering I've just had it and haven't shot it more than 30 times, I didn't think that would really be that big of an issue.

    30 rounds down a crappy factory barrel could be 20 to many.

    You might try some other ammo in it. Those green box PSPs have never been tack drivers in any caliber and bullet weight I have tried. Decent, but not great. If nothing works, send it back to Remington and get it rebarreled or replaced (I assume it is a new one).

    Ok let me give this a try. I have learned mainly from the military that sighting in is a procedure. Here is what I have learned. Go to the range with some good ammo preferably what you plan to use it for. Get a gun vise, and make sure the gun is clean. Since you are somewhat sighted in skip the 25 yd target and go to 50 yds. Shoot the gun at 50 yds from a gun vise. 3 shots and you should have a one inch group or less and it should be 2 inches low from bullseye center. If you cannot shoot a 1 inch group at 50yds with a vise then there is a problem. Something is loose, scope, stock or something is loose. Or the scope could be bad. I once had a friend tell the same thing when I went to the range to help him the scope was a cheap one and was not made to take the high power impact. Every time he shot it it was different, the scope was trashed and the crosshairs would move everytime.
    If you have a 1 inch group at 50 yds and you move it till it is 2 inches low. Then move to 100 yds and you should be close with maybe a slightly larger group ( maybe 2 inches). Now if you are wanting to sight it at a longer range I would be looking at a ballistics chart to get some kinda idea what is happening and at what ranges. Work yourself out in stages to the yardage that you want sighted in at.
    Yes there are other ways to do it and this one will work every time. By the time you are sighted in you will be confident in you weapon. No short cuts.

    If this does not work find a gunsmith or a new gun.

    I think I'm going to actually look into getting a different gun for coyotes and maybe use this one for closer range hunting. I've been looking at getting a Remington 700 Varmint with the stainless fluted barrel in .22-250 or .223. Which one would you guys recommend getting?

    .22-250 gives you some velocity advantage over .223. Other than that... If you are going to shoot factory, .223 ammo comes in a huge variety of bullet weights and brands, whereas .22-250 is much more limited. IF you are going to reload, .223 brass is fairly easy to acquire, but if you can find the components, then you can load up what you want in .22-250 just as easily.

    I'd go with the .223 simply because it's so much easier to come by. It is here at least.
