300WSM @ 1250 yards

Got the 300wsm out long this weekend. shooting the 215 hybrids @ 3030fps. I used the chrono speed to get close on the white board in the picture. Then hit the Yellow ball I have hanging 2 out of 3 shots. That ball is 6" so I am very with it as the 3rd shot didn't look very far off.
This load is one of those funny ones that doesn't shoot that great @ 100 yards only around .3 for group, but stabilizes around 200 and does great from there on out. I don't have a place to get too 1760 really want to see what it can do at that distance.

Keep bragging about your groups at that range and some of the Pennsylvania bench rest shooters will jump on you!

That is a sweet looking rig and some very nice shooting. Can you get shots on game out that far where you live?

Re: 300WSM @ 1250 yards

I am running RL17 in it.

I know them bench rest guys and yes they get all emotional about groups lol. I am a bench rest guy at heart too, but the paper just doesn't do it for me. I shoot ridgway VBR it's a steel shoot with 40 targets it's much more my speed.

Yes, on the properties I hunt I can get 1405 as an absolute max right now and that is hard gotta be just the right setup. 1300 and under is the normal for targets and I just cant seem to get those groundhogs to get out where it's real far. only one hog so far this year 871 yards.

I have been looking for a load recipe for the same bullet and powder as you are using, but have been unable to. Do you mind sharing your load recipe?
