Re: longrange target.

When I was shooting 49.0 gr. of H-1000 my 5 shot group at 1000 yards was 6.5" tall, 3.5" wide. I dropped the charge down to 48.7 and next time out to 1000 I shot a 5 and a 10 shot group. Both were just under 4.5". I took off just a touch over 2" of vertical. This is my Tac rifle, 48.7 runs the 115 DTAC at 3153 FPS out of a 27" Krieger. At 49.0 it was 3225 fps.

I have a 6CM 30" BR rifle that at 800 yards my best ten shot group was 2", it is throated with the long reamer. I have not chronoed this rifle but my come ups figure out to be about 3300 FPS. The load in this rifle is 49.0 H-1000 with a 115 DTAC. This 2" group was when I had 1200 rounds down the barrel, Joe says they are just starting to shoot good at that round count.

The Tac Rifle I started shooting it in Feb. '07, it now has 3800+ rounds on it and I checked it at 600 recently and it shot a .4 moa 5 shot group. Not to shabby for 3800 rounds. I have a 28" Lawton barrel chambered in 6CM waiting to screw on. This one has been broke in and Melonited.

Iam pretty proud of this target. Gona put it on the wall in the garage..
I'd say you are learning quite well. Congrats.
