I couldn't range 700 yards so I ROUGHLY ranged 100 yards further from where I was shooting. I only shot once at 700 but I hit around 2 inches high. After getting back home and looking at a ballistics chart, Im surprised that I got that close at roughly 700 bc 5 yards closer or further than 700 results in over 2 inches of difference either way. Guess I got lucky. Ive shot guns and hunted all my life but this is by far the furthest Ive ever shot and It feels awesome to be able to hit that far out. The only bad part is that I just shot the last of my H4831. How much difference could I experience from a different lot of powder?
I'd be looking for some H4831,,,two inch groups out of a Browning A-bolt at 600 yards is nothing to sneeze at.
