Got in some fo the LR testing of the gen 2 bullet today. Had to get it in as spring bear season is under way here. I took Canyon Rifle # 0051 and ran the 300 gr bullets at 2864 fps as a standard load .005" off the lands as this is where I had seen the best accuracy at 100 yards.
We started with a 1156 yards shot and used a straight BC of .818 the this took 27.75 moa of elevation and I dialed in 2.25 moa right windage. First shot was dead on for elevation and to the right of center about .50 moa just barely missing the rock I was shooting at. I made a quick correction .50 moa left and shot a 3 shot group on the rock that measured with the NPR1 reticule was just under .5 moa!!! Quite happy with myself we moved out to another rock at 1833 yards. I dialed in 58.75 moa up and 4.00 moa right windage. My first shot was 1.75 moa low and .5 moa right. I corrected both and fired the second shot, this shot just missed the right edge of the .75 moa rock I was shooting at. We really buckeled down on watching the wind and landed the next 2 rounds on the rock. Playing with the wind being what it is at those distances I look mostly at the vertical size of the group in testing. The last 3 shots had easly landed in under 10" at 1833 yards. I am quite happy with these new Gen 2 bullets. I had to set some velocity limits and BC at distance changes to make everything compute correctly and I will test more of this and post it later for everyone to get a good start ballistically with theese bullets. I am looking forward to using them on game in the hopefully near future.
This target shows the performance difference we experienced between the Gen1 bullet center target and the Gen 2 bullet lower right out of the same rifle. Liek I said quite happy with the Gen 2 version.
