Re: 338 lm loads

I have only shot this gun at 100, 300, and a 1000 yds and today I went by my clicks I got off the calculator from this website, no joke I hit in a 5 inch circle out to 600 yds and made it a liitle bigger at seven and a little bigger each time out to a 1000 and sure enough hit in the circle until I got to 1000 the clicks says 119 and it was 12 inches low I moved it 4 clicks up and nailed a inch thick piece of metal bout foot and a half by 2 foot.

Tank
91.5 gr H1000 for me with 300 gr Bergers. 91.0 gr with 300 SMK's. These are fairly hot in my rifle, but my best acuracy was at 92 gr (too hot). I had inconsistent results with RE25. Bergers cut 0.25" off of my groups over SMKs.

Its a 26 inch fluted shilen with a mcmillian stock stiller action and timney trigger. I thought I had it figured out but I only could make the deer dance a little this evening at 875 yds.

Whats the farthest you've shot? What kind of groups are you getting at your farthest? Whats the twist of your barrel. Hahah lots of questions sorry just trying to figure some stuff out.

27 " Bartlein Barrel, 1:10 twist 5R, chambered by GA Precision, min spec chamber. Rifle is a Sako TRG-s. Velocity is 2825 fps.

I practice out to 1000 yards. Groups average between 4" and 12" at 1K and sub 0.60" at 100. Filled my general Elk tag at 878 yards this year.
