mandomax- nice to hear that someone else found a similar sweet spot! You shooting the 230 bergers?
You nailed it. The first time I had the advantage of spotting for my friend shooting a 338 Lapua. He has possibly the nicest range I have ever seen. We were settin at the shootin bench, under a nice shade tree with a very small right to left breeze. His range crosses over a wash and up the side of this far away hill. His first shot went WAY left. After I talked him in he beat the crap out of it (the lapua was only 6 minutes of windage but mine shot flatter) it still took me 3 shots to hit the 30" plate.
The second time I had a constant 14 to 15 mph wind on a perfectly level 1200 yard shot. Nearly identical elevation and I had the advantage of previous experience.
I accidentally bought a Remington 700 Sendero in 300 RUM the other day. I appreciate the info you have posted. Will certainly be trying it in mine.
