I've upgraded a few things since I shot those .3" groups...Those were rounds loaded with Lee dies and Winchester brass.
When I switched to Lapua brass and Redding National Match dies (with micrometer seater)...the groups tightened up some.
At 100 yards...it'll print one pretty clean hole...I can always "see" there are 2 shots through it, but haven't yet been able to tell there is a 3rd...basically, a very slightly oblong hole...I do 3 shot groups, plenty enough to feel out a hunting rifle.
If I had the correct scope with fine enough crosshairs, could hold the rifle still enough, and call the wind perfect every shot...it should be capable of 1-2" groups at 600 yards...but my ability seems to be the limiting factor, as such...3-4 inches is what I get.
