Re: 338 Lapua Range report

Well the rifle so far has turned out to be very accurate. Only got to go out and test at 100 yards so far. I plan on testing it out at 300 this coming week which should prove more rewarding. All the loads tested have been so far (89gr to 92.5gr of H1000) have all been well under MOA with most ranging from the .3 to .4 MOA range.

I cant wait to get the load that I want and then go stretch it out to 1k and beyond!

Re: 338 Lapua Range report

It really is a shame to be shooting a lapua at 100 yards ...!!!

The sad thing is when you have it dialed in 1000 is gonna seem boring once you've been to 2000 I do most of my shooting 1200-1800 yards anymore.

Shot a mule deer at 300 hundred this fall and all I could think about is why isnt he 900 more yards away!

Yeah..it was pretty boring although it was fun to shoot it. It's been to windy to do load development at distance though.
