165 sgk - max distance?

If a 168 smk is good to about 800 (based only what I have read here) then what is the practical limit of a 165 sgk? I am currently pushing the 165 2880 fps out of a 30-06, and getting groups about .75 MOA at 600, but at 700 the groups open up to a foot. Can it get that crazy in the span of 100 yards?
