    Very actually. I've been tuning .308 loads for a while but was rudely interrupted when my 3-9x scope died. I am now stuck with a 4x so no more experimenting for a while. :hs:

    That's the very thing I did when my rifle started shooting 5 inches high and 5 inches to the right all of the sudden.

    I subscribe to the 10 shot group. Pretty much eliminates luck. I'm also a fan of shooting 10 seperate 1" targets. It is a true test of rifle ammo and rifleman

    Shooting 10 shot groups, you see the group pattern actually develop. It tells a lot more than a 3 shot group.

    Only problem is, 10 shots out of a precision rifle is expensive as fuck! And if you give yourself a bad trigger pull, sneeze, whatever, you gotta start right the fuck over again lol.

    lame you're no where even near close to the bullseye
     
  20. I think what was done was they were zeroed at .308" and then used to measure the edge-to-edge of the group, which would give you a proper center to center measurement, though it's an odd way of doing it. The calipers are right about .500" which is damn close to .308+.191

    Is that a 10m air pistol target? NRA B-40 or an Edelmann #2000?

    On a completly random note where the f*** did you find H4895, all I can find for 4895 is IMR but all the loads I have are for H4895:madfawk:. Nice shooting though. Just wondering how much the type of brass matters compared to the consistency of the brass, if you weighed out the brass to get it to weigh the same would cheaper brass types shoot this well or is there something else that Lapua brass offers that I am missing?

    off by ~2 MOA, that's missing a 200 yard head shot on a stationary target off a bench, not under stress. You don't stand a chance against even the slow moving zombies, much less the super fast vampire kind. :fawk:
