McMillan TAC-338 1,337 Yard Group

Finally stretched the legs on the TAC-338. I wanted to refine my handload a little more before taking it out this far, but couldn't resist this perfect day to do some ELR.
Load:
Lapua brass
250 Matchking
215 Fed primer
96.2 grains of retumbo

    Nice job. Looks like you at least held MOA with all but one of them and managed one right in the red.

    That would be the target of a lifetime at that range for most people.

    Sounds about right. the handload I was shooting was about 3/4 moa at 100 yards. I want to bring it down to 1/4 moa. I've only had the rifle about a week, so havent played enough with my loads.
