We're both wrong...those #'s are the ones JBM spit out.

Using my math and a calculator...I came up with 10.05 inches.

1.047 x 2.4 x 4 = 10.05"

I apologize for not checking the JBM math...I thought it was better than that.

Crap, you're right. I left out the .047 part, LOL.

That which does not kill me......has made a huge tactical error

Re: Wind drift?

I agree I am not using the right bullet for the best long range hunting but I have these bullets on hand and I will be leaving in a couple of weeks and don't want to start to build a new load at this date. I changed the bullet seating depth so it just fits in the magizine and the accuarcy improved. I will be looking for advice on a bullet to use on light skinned game and that will expand well.
