Re: Finished up my 180 hybrid load in 7rm

What is the minimum speed for the 180 hybrids to perform on deer sized game??? I am not sure how well they will perform only seen them on ground hogs and out past 1000 they tend to just poke a hole.

    [QUOTE=RockyMtnMT;859101]Stop paying attention to 100 yard groups. Shoot for groups at 300 yards. Start your load close to the lans shoot for velocity. Then when you get to the correct velocity adjust the seating depth while shooting for groups until you find the spot that your rifle likes.


    +1. as stated in my first post my 375 yrd groupd were better than my 200yd groups. And if i went with 100 yard groups i wouldnt have tested this load at longer distances. Meaning that i didnt have 2 shots touching at 100 out of 3 shots.

    I have seen people group very well at 100 and hammer at 1000. But ive seen people that still hammer at 1000 with crappy 100 yard groups. I guess its true that sometimes they need to "go to sleep"

    I think you should go find a land owner who has never shot past 600 yards before and invite them to some trigger time. It's kind of a give and take. They offer up the land, you offer up the rifle. Who knows, they may like the LR shooting so much you're invited to return during hunting season to thin the deer population.
