The first thing to do is get some good Standardized Targets and use them.
I print my own because of they're expensive to buy and you'll need a lot of them.
I've shot at least 7000 Rounds of different Brands in the last two years, trying to find the most accurate for me.
Forget the CCI, unless 2" MOA is OK with you, except the Green Tag, which I found very accurate.
Those Target scans are on another Disc Drive.
I haven't shot them since getting a Rear Rest.
Eley: 1" Squares w/ 1/4" Bull
Lapua: 1" Squares w/ 1/4" Bull
Here's my Home Made Range measured @ 50yds and and Target Board. (little White Square in the distance.)
I have a Nice Rear Rest now, not seen in the Pic.
12 Targets with 60 Rounds, 5 Rounds / Target.
For Groundhogs, they're Tough and take two shots, unless I get a Head shot.
Now, I'm using Winchester HE 37gr 1/3 Segmented Rounds that kill with one shot to the chest.
I've killed 15 in two years @ 50-75yds.
