I recently bought a new Rem 597 "Yellow Jacket" that looked like it was meant to shoot. Well, I was wrong. I took it out the 1st time with only my favorite 22 LR's, the Wolf Match Target, thinking they shoot in anything. Well, I was wrong again. I got average of 3" to 4" groups at 50 yds. Went home, scrubbed the bore good, polished it a bit with 800 grit and thought I'd give it another chance with different ammo. Took it out again last Wednesday and carried 10 boxes of different ammo, Win, Fed, Rem & Eley. It shot nothing well, still averaging about 3"-4" groups. The scope & mounts are solid. I don't have a bore scope but using a white bore light it appears that the rifling is very shallow, so shallow I can hardly see it. This is my only Remington 22. Is this normal for Remingtons? Anybody got experience with Rem 22's especially the 597? I wanted to get some feedback from others before calling Remington.
