Self-guided, auto-correcting, hole-in-target-seeking tipped bullets.

I've had it happen once or twice. I called it luck.

Re: Question about berger vld's

Words mean things, be careful especially with the difference between inches and MOA.

In inches I agree that its impossible for a rifle to shot 1" @ 200 and less than 1" at any greater distance.

However, what Michael says regarding MOA is true and is observed quite frequently.

I have a rifle that will shoot 1/4 MOA @ 200 and at 1000 on a perfect day but ONLY on perfect days. (that would be days without wind AND mirage and I'm in the Zone).

Roy,

I'm with you on the groups expressed in MOA versus inch measurements. Michael could clarify this, but I understood his post to state that he's had a load that consistently produced smaller measured groups at 1000 yds than the groups printed at 600 yds. 6.24" at 600 yds (0.6 MOA @ 600yds) and less than 5.2" at 1000 yds (sub 0.5 MOA @ 1000yds).

Re: Question about berger vld's

these are only 5 shot groups..but my 280AI will shoot .75MOA @ 100, .3-.5MOA at 300 and .6 - .7 at 600

havent tested further than that. these were on relatively calm days obviously. would love to try it at 1000 one day

Re: Question about berger vld's

I'm just curious why everyone thinks it is hard to beleive he shoots a smaller group at 200 yds. vs 100yds. (not 1000 that ya'll have read into his post)?

Re: Question about berger vld's

I have shot Benchrest for several yrs, not the best by far but I have shot smaller MOA at 200 yds in a match than at 100 yds. Smallest at 200 yds was a .199" (.999" MOA) and smallest at 100 yds.was a .122"
