In between working and doing some load development I put a Bobby Hart LRT stock on my 338 Ultra mag for hunting purposes so I don't destroy my Joel Russo ironwood stock. I devcon bedded it and added a 1 inch spacer to give me a longer LOP. I headed to the range on thursday morning after work cause it was pretty calm to shoot a couple groups at 500 yds and verify bullet drop from my 300 yd zero.
I checked 300 impact which was 1 inch high and fired 3 shots at 500 which were 20 inches low. I dialed in some elevation and fired 3 more and the wind started picking up so I decided not to waste any ammo, but I was happy with the results.
I think if I had some better sandbags it would be easier to hold the gun steadier. I can't believe how much the rifle moves when you are trying to squeeze one off at a 3 inch dot at 500 yds and my canjar set trigger is adjusted to just more than breeze to set it off.
What are you guys using for Good sandbags?
