Sounds like an awesome varmint rig! I don't think you can multiply 100 yd group size by a factor of 10 and predict 1000 yard group size, though. Admittedly I have never shot that far for groups--600 yds max--but I know my groups tend to get a little bigger in moa as distance increases. I think the two factors other than the shooter would be wind drift (big one even with slight wind as distance increases with a modest BC) and ES of velocity. A load with a large ES can shoot tiny 100 yd groups but I would think vertical spread would become a factor as yardage increases.

Sounds like a cool project, be sure to keep us posted!

The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.

Hey, this .162 at 100=1.62 at 1000 sounds very familiar! Perhaps this will shed some light on Fiftydriver's "long range experts" post.

Uh-oh, not to be a killjoy here, but telling your rifle what powder it likes, what bullet it likes, and what it is going to do accuracy wise and bc wise before you actually get the thing built is a little premature methinks.
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

GG, I decided against this project. It sounded great at first. However, after some more investigation and some comments from others on this site, I decided to build something different.

I would be interested in knowing the powder load for this project. Thanks
