2.5" is still impressive. Nice work. My rifle and I argue over .75MOA and .3 MOA accuracy at LR. I say .3 is the goal since I do it consistenly for my zero and it says .75MOA is more acceptable past 600. I am sure it is the rifle, ha ha.

The rifle and a lot of time spent loading for it and playing with seating depth.

Having a target frame of 4'x8' gives the shooter a visible location as to what the wind is doing to the load! Just because it's that size doesn't mean that you can't spray paint a bull in the middle!!

Re: What are you shooting at? Long Range Targets.

Best thing about a big target is it allows you to get on target pretty easily. I've gone out and shot at smallish targets and for one reason or another you're missing and at longer ranges it can be difficult to spot which direction you're missing. Keeps wasted ammo to a minimum
