    It's hard to believe you are shooting 2 inch groups at 600 with a 10 power optic, you should post this on snipershide, you would probly get an award.
     
  3. Since a quarter is almost an inch in diameter, that would make your 5 shot groups in the area of 1.3" at 600 yards. That's approaching world-record level shooting. Even more amazing is that you shot that off a bipod.

    @ 100-200 meters, with his stated equipment and more importantly ammo those groups would be very impressive. At 600, it's World class.

    Replace "yards" with "feet" and we may have a winner.
     
  11. I don't think that rifle, with that ammo, could shoot those groups in a ransom rest.

    I have a 20x Scope.. nobody said 10x.. Or at least I didnt

    and I only showed you the best targets, some others were not so pretty but everything was on steel.

    Any doubters are free to bring me ammo and Ill prove the point again
     
  21. Forget proving it to us, you should go enter some matches. Guys dump thousands and thousands into custom rifles and similar amounts into the gear needed to reload to exacting standards. Here, you have a Remington 700 and box of off-the-shelf ammo and you're almost setting world records. :noes:

    Very nice 1/2 moa rifle you have there. That is a excellent group at 600 yards!


    I'm telling you guys if these people at the gun stores and the internet would get off their asses and show up at match the big name guys would be in a lot of trouble. :rofl:
     
  24. That's actually like 1/5moa if those groups are ~1.3" @600 yards.
