500 Yard 3 Shot Group SMK

I am fairly new to long range shooting but really like it so far. I did this group with my Remington 700 ADL 7mm Rem. Mag and my 150gr. Sierra Match King Reloads. I havent even measured the groups because I am not familiar with how to do it. I just use a dime as a reference at a 100 yards. But anyway this is what it did at 500 Yards. Oh its a little beat up cause I had that thing in my wallet for a while, but I shot that group earlier this year

Looks like horizontal stringing to me, you should think about re-barreling or maybe trading it in all together for something that can really drive tacks.

Oh, I just noticed that's a penny, not a dime: you're going to need a better scope.

Seriously, good work. I would be happy to get groups like that at 100 yards out of some of the rifles I've owned!

It never ceases to amaze me how many here cannot hit those coins.







In all seriousness, good job. Now can you duplicate it?

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
