Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

i noticed that the bullet holes arent cut clean. is this from the bullets not being fully stabalized in such a short distance?

Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

I just got back from the range today and shot a .404 ctc group in 10-15 mph wind gusts with the same load for the Barnes Lrx at 100 yards. Vertical was about .115 ctc. The horizontal is what got me. I think its time to stretch her legs out. On longer range shots when velocities are approching 2200 fps and below would a shoulder shot be prefered over a behind the shoulder shot to ensure expansion?
