Re: 22-250 and 90 gr Bergers for target and deer?

I was shooting 75 Amax's out of my Savage model 12 223 with a 1 in 9 twist @~2780 fps. I had sub moa to 900 yards, at which point my scope would no longer dial out parallax. Stability factor was something like 1.09 at this altitude, but those are just numbers and the results were more than good enough for me. Now I'm shooting 70gr VLD's. Short range groups are smaller, but I've yet to find if they will remain small at longer range.
