Dider I've seen some incredible long range shooting over the years every one I know would be proud of that.

At that range the "cause" could be anything from the slightest updraft, slightest change in wind velocity if it is either a head or tail wind, or simply the slightest shift in your point of aim due to the type and thickness of your crosshairs.

It could also very easily just be caused by ES in your loads.

When your "error" is sub 1/4 MOA I wouldn't go nuts trying to figure it out.

Congrats on some absolutely outstanding shooting.

Many people would be happy with that group at 500 yards, I would not want to change a thing with whatever your doing cause it sure looks to me like its working. Fantastic shooting

I'd keep practicing. Or get more magnification.

Most people can shoot this good at 100 yards, so you are doing okay I think.

Congrats, about the only way to improve is to talk to someone like David Tubb's, he's a freak of nature too.

God will help too, he's obviously with you.

A mere mortal named Ed

Congratulations...

Re: My 1,000 yard 2.684" group.

If you guys are worried about vertical stringing that adds up to about .2 moa at 1000 yards, you will never be happy!!! A bit of realistic thinking needs to be applied here. The guy just shot two sup 1/4 moa groups at 1K.......

Let me say again, the guy just shot two sub 1/4 moa groups at 1K!!!!!

And we start looking at vertical stringing......

To the OP, Great shooting and great rifle, I think your load development is pretty much done, get off paper and start doing practical field practice shooting and enjoy your obviously fine rifle.

Congrats.
