Finished up my 180 hybrid load in 7rm

Ive had this rifle for a couple years now and never really had a bullet that shined in it. I finally started loading the 180 hybrids and they are a big winner i think. I should point out also that my 375 yard group shown is smaller than my 200 yard groups. Not sure how that works! I recently moved and dont have access to a longer place to shoot and farmers arent to willing to let me stretch out on their land. What do you guys think?
The specs:
Accurized rem 700 la
26" #6 lilja 9twist
Mcmillan htg stock
Luepold 4.5-14x40 lrt mark4
Alberta tactical 20 moa rail and rings

Load:
Win brass on its 4th firing.
Fed 215M primers
H1000
180 hybrids

The group measured 1.25". (Its the 3 on the left)

    Good groups and a good lookin rifle...Unfortunately the handle is on the wring side for me.

    Keep us updated more on the 180 Hybrids. I have been curious about them as well for my 7RM and 7 STW.

    I plan on using them on deer this year and seeing how they do. From what ive read they will do fine. But i sure cant wait to stretch it out to 1000.
