Re: 960 and 1310 yards w/6.5-284. Question
Thanks. I am leaning toward the solution FPS is not correct. I have a some shots at 1500 from the same spot that seem good on elevation, which is weird. I will try and get a short clip posted. The impacts are really hard to see and of course, are left.
Night Force scope. I have not checked .25MOA tracking. Need to do that.
I re-read my message. The zero was off by .5moa Left. I found that later when I re-zerod. I was playing with spin drift and wind read and noticed everything was still left. At the time I figured I just sucked, as usual. So if I had been shooting a L and R zerod rifle my guess is I would have been .5 to 1 moa right of my impacts. At this time was rifle was supposed to be zerod for 200. I am not sure why caused the Left issue. I suspect is from bouncing around on 4 wheeler for the past month. ??
On the 1310 2nd shot I remember using the 1 MOA tick mark and adding that for elevation. I think the 3rd shot was back to no hold over. I was not being very methodical about shooting that day I guess, so it is likely I just went back to the cross hair to see what happened.
I might have an ES issue as well. I have am chasing a pressure spike now and have been going over everything the best I can. I have a case guage I am using and remeasuring all the brass and trying to determine if head space is an issue etc. So far all seems ok except the brass is on the max for length side of things. Trimming is in order and started that last night. Case neck thickness is almost identical to the new Lapau brass after 6 firings.
I did shoot the 160 matrix at 1280 the next day after chronoing and zero. I left the vid cam at home but the bullets flew very well.
