Sighting in 30.06

The morning was sunny, 63 degrees F, with a 15 knot Westerly wind and gusts to 30 knots. After removing a new CZ 550FS from the case and creating a solid rest, I initially used 150 grain brand X 30.06 ammo creating two groups at 100 yards, the first at 11 o'clock and ~5 inches from center, the second group on center with ~1.5 inch MOA. I switched to Hornady Superformance 165 g SST and achieved a 4 shot group (100 yards) at 12 o'clock, (above the number 10) 4 inches high with <1 inch MOA, one slightly to the right of the main group. I'm sold and will not use any other brand of ammo.

P.S. the smaller caliber on center is Hornady .17 HMR, 20 grain.
