Re: Groups???

Bulldog, really.... You have a bunch of guys wanting to help out,,,,, but supply some relavent info!!!!

What we know, a 300wsm under 1" at 100.

Answer this;
Gun? factory or custom?
ammo? factory or handload?
Scope?tasco 3x9 or Nightforce 5.5x20? paralax adjustable?
Using front and rear bags?
Heavy trigger or lightened?
6lb gun or 14lb gun?
Group size at 300?

all these things can have a relative effect on your abillity to shoot at 300

Factory ammo can be absolute crap in the SD department and increase long range groups.
Paralax can exaserbate the long range error.
scope quality matters.
Long range and heavy triggers don't mix
Fouled up factory barrels lose there accuracy.
Heavy guns are easier to shoot.

Are you a practiced long range shooter or is this your first attempts at stretching out?

As others have pointed out, need more relevant input, otherwise, there's going to be too many speculations (hate "ass"-umptions ).

Having said that, here's my speculation ... if you are getting 1" @ 100 yards, and if you mean opens up a lot is 3" @ yards, then I see nothing wrong (other than an opportunity for improvement) .

Good luck!
