Thanks. If i could get 3/4 inch i would be ok with that. I think my scope is focused. It has a eye piece that i focused to what I think is best. I dont have a torque driver but they are pretty tight. Cant screw them any harder with the allen wrench I used. I tried 93 grs and 91 and the 91 load was a little closer. I've read that the closer to max load the better. What do you think? I'm also only using 180 accubonds. Maybe a 200 grain would be better. I'm going to try retumbo and h1000 to see if that makes any difference. I dont think i would ever take 500+ yard shot at an elk, yet. Not enough practice for one and with my groups the way they are, I would hate to wound one. I was shooting at a few different powers. All the way to 16. Didnt seem to make much difference. Is there a optimal power to sight in with? One thing about it is I'm having fun and learning a lot about reloading. I have a guy helping me who is into it big time. We are planning on changing the seating length but i cant get anything over about 3.85 in the magazine. So I will just keep playing with it. I live in Missoula. Great place if you can get past the greenies around here.
