Bİg problem 7mm rem mag

OK what the balistic programs say and some of you guys sugested was;
a 7mm rem mag shooting a 175 grain PSP bullet at 2860 f/s it would hit 4 inch high at 100 yards and dead on at 300 yards. but went shooting today at an altitude at see level and it was 4 inch high at 100 yards and 4 inch low at 300 yards??????? going back to the 150 grain bullets from now on. can any one sugest me a good scope with balistic reticals that suits the 7 mm rem mag???? thanks guys

Is the 2860fps off the ammo box, or did you chony it for the speed.

check your scope height and measure your velocity don't guesstimate

I prefer the 160 grian Barnes Triple-Shock bullets out of my 7mm Rem Mag. They fly the best out of all the 7 Mags I've had. They don't make the exact ones I shoot anymore. Federal used to mass produce them, and they're part number is P7RK. You oughta check them out.

Something is not right here. No way should your bullet should be hitting low @ 300 yds if you are 4" high @ 100 yds.

A 175 psp should have a BC of at least .5 and using that and 2860 fps (which is a very reasonable guess of actual velocity) I am getting a 310 yd zero with bullets 4" high @ 100 yds @ 5000" elevation. I'm alos using 1.8" sight height.

The 150's will shoot flatter.

I think most BDC reticles are calibrated for about 3000 fps which should be close to factroy 150's.

What's the best way to accurately measure scope height?
