Pics of 1000 yard groups with Bergers seated deep





These are 3 shot 1000 yard groups from a Rem. Sendero 7mmSTW.
180 grain Berger hunting
3.665 OAL
3050 FPS
Retumbo
Mark 4 6.5-20
wind was 3 mph from 2 oclock

The group in the red had two touching and one about an inch below

I didn't have anything with me to measure them with, but the red circle is 10 inches and the white dot is about 1.5 inches

I also have a 300 ultra 700P that is grouping well with 210 grain Bergers seated to fit in the magazine, but not as good as the STW.

    This pic is my cold bore shot from my 300 ultra. First shot of the day. My spotter said he thought it went dead center but wasn't sure. We rode down to the target and it was dead center in the white dot. Pretty lucky huh? I was about to say "good enough" and pack up my stuff and go home.

    Good shooting mate!

    How far off the lands do you think those bullets were seated?

    I'm not sure actually. I experimented with them touching and .010" off the lands and I couldn't get them to group. I read about someone else on this board that was loading them magazine length so I gave it a shot. Both of my rifles like them that way.

    I am turning my 300 ultra into an Edge and will try them with it too. If Berger ever gets the 300 grainers built.

    Awesome shooting brother! Welcome to the forum. Always good to see new faces around here! As you said, I would also just call it a day after a cold bore shot with your 300 RUM!! Heck with a shot like that you may just want to retire that barrel go ahead with the Edge project....or not

    It's at a shooting range in Utah. Very nice range.
