Those are typical results. Out to 600 yards there is ussually no point in looking any further that your drop chart. Past that however such as 700 and beyond, the difference between 980' and 5000' is enough for a clean miss.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
