Lol yep this is acutely the best group i've got with this gun. Normally its averages about 2 inches at a 100.

Lol ya this acutely the best group I ever got out of this gun. Normally it shoots 2in groups with one 150s at a 100yards.

Oh, well even for factory stuff that isn't to bad.

With your reloads, is that the smallest you can get with that bullet and powder or just a "quick" load that you took from a manual?

I've also heard that larger caliber a don't tend to fully stabilize until closer to 200 yards, so that could be a small reason as to why you're always getting about a 2" group.

This is just a quick load I got from hodgdons website because I didn't have any data for this powder and bullet. so I just threw them together they do good enough to hunt with but not the best group for targets.
