Re: 300 WSM Any comments?
Although minute of angle is pretty much one inch at one hundred, two at two hundred etc. it just don't work out that a one inch at one hundred rifle will shoot ten inches at 1000. Main problem is the wind, plus your target gets a mite smaller when it is way out there.
If you have a place to shoot long, as in past 700 or so, I suggest using a large target, at least three or four feet square, preferably bigger. We use large sheets of 1/2 steel plate, some are 3'x 4' and we spray paint them white so that we can see the bullet splats easily. With practice you will also learn to see the bullets in flight so you will be able to call high, low, left or right.
You will find that bullet drop is relatively easy to handle relative to learning to dope the wind and keeping your bullets traveling the same arcs.
