265gr HAT Group

Here's a group I shot at 565yds with the 338HAT's. with my 338 Lapua Improved. These were the Gen I bullets.
I have some of of the Gen 3 bullets and will shoot them in the near future and post the results.

They are supposed to be a bit better than the Gen I.

Re: 265gr HAT Group

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: 265gr HAT Group

Thanks for the kind words. It's nice to get a tight group at 565yds, but I couldn't keep it inside the quarter.
I'll try to tighten it up with the next gens.
I can't wait to try them.
They also shot well at 1000yds with only 1.5-3" of verticle.
Laterally depends on how I read the wind of course-sometimes good sometimes not so good!

The best I've done at 565 is 1.18" with my 6.5WSSM and 123 scenars

Re: 265gr HAT Group

I'll shoot the Gen 3's and post the conditions and the drops and see if we can make any sense of it.
I'll just post the moa I have to dial in at various distances. I know it leaves alot to be desired but it will be the most practical thing I can do.
My scope is a Nightforce it does dial accurately, so far at least.
