Outlaw, the interesting thing is the ES on the AMAX's was 19 and on the VLD's it was 49. That was only for the 5 shots fired at 100yds for each load. I did not use the chrony at 800yds. This is just a start and I plan to do more testing. I had to adjust velocity for each to get the #'s on the program to match up exactly. I went with 2840 on the AMAX's and 2834 for the VLD's.
The ES you have with the VLD's is enough to account for a good bit of your vertical spread.
Again, nice shooting.
Without the First and Second Amendments the rest of The Constitution is Meaningless.
Good shooting! Just shows that you don't have to have a custom rifle and meticulously loaded ammo to learn a lot, have a good time, and oh yeah shoot some impressive groups! You are on the right track my friend.
I see your point but it's still hard to believe this factory gear with me behind it shot like this. I've been trying to accomplish this for a long time. It wasn't until I found the great info on this site that I really started to put it all together. I still have a long way to go with reloading just around the corner but in the meantime at least I've got something to practice with. If there is one thing I can pass on to those attempting to shoot at distance the huge difference maker for me was going from a B.C. of .441 to .549. B.C. makes a huge difference! I've spent years shooting factory ammo out to 1000yds with mixed results. Never anything that gave me any real 1 shot confidence past 600yds. Now at least I have hope. Like I said there is more testing to be done. Also my Kestrel and ballistic program right on my phone is a huge asset.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you all!
