Re: 300 RUM, 230gr bergers, 1400 yards

Finally got to stretch the legs on the 230's...I went out to 800 yrds on these and I was about .75/.8 MOA group for the load. I was keeping it about in a 6 to 6.5 inch group at 800yrds. Shot at 500 and I was about the same right at 3 to 4 inches. I think I just need some more practice but I was pretty please for the first time out shooting these large pills. I'm sure I could make some tuning to my on marksman skills and probably get another inch or 2 out of the same load. I think I sometime don't do everything the same all the time on my holding and squeezing the trigger. But over all I've been well pleased with this load. It may need a slight amount of tuning but still not bad at all for a semi stock gun.
