Shoot it at 200+ yds. You might be surprised and shoot tighter groups (MOA wise) than you do at 100.
You have a good consistent velocity, the bullet may just need a little bit more time to stabilize.

    .500 seems like a lot and it is but it's worth trying before giving up. I was having trouble getting my 284 to group with the Barnes and was given this advice, it worked for my rifle.

    well birddog im in houston area also...remember this heat down here really affects our rifles. today it was 96 with a heat index of 99..so when at the range we really have to take our time shooting or the barrel really heats up quickly..holler at me and we can get in some range time..Gary
