Re: Whats the likely range for you to hit a target about 2-3 inches in one shot?
At our range we have one 3" steel plate at 300 yards(from the bench,400yards from 100 yards behind the bench)
We also have a 5" plate at 385 yards from bench and 485 from behind bench.
One 7" plate at 425 yards from bench and 525,behind bench.
Also one 11" plate at 485yards from bench and 585yards,behind bench.
With my 22-250 and 50gr bt's at 3925fps I can hit the 3" plate 2 out of 3 times(up to 4-6 mph wind) 3 out of 3 on no wind days at the 400 yard mark. Very cosistantly under them conditions. More wind and it is minimum 1 out of 3 hits.
With the 22-284,shooting 68hpbt match bullets at 3700-3750fps it has been 100% hits under any conditions up to 10-12 mph winds,at 400 yards.
As for groups,I feel more confident with my 22-250 and have a number of targets that have 3 rounds inside the 3" mark at 500 yards on nice days(2-4mph)
The 22-284 though I can't seem to shoot groups with it at any range,500 yard groups are normaly about 4",which is very strange because if I shoot at coke bottles I can hit them nere every time out to 600-650yards. (5-7mph)
All the shooting I do is with bi-pod,I only use but bag at the range for groups.(the bag gets a bit heavy packing it in the feild)
