Re: 7mm groups @ 200

both of my 7mm shoot better at 200 then 100, this was today at 200yards


I noticed at 100 yards the bullets are not yet stabilized, try making a load for 200 yards

I use 70.5 retumbo, Berger 168 VLD

also 200 with this rifle 7mm

    Before you waste time on different bullets you need to look back at a previus answer to your problem.

    Most likely the reason is your scope not having a parralax adjustment.

    Set your rifle on target and without touching it look thru the scope and see how much the cross hairs move on the target.

    Actually I just checked it and there is movement in the cross hairs....I just shot a 100 yd group and it shot .4.... So it seems like a parrallax problem... Il have try a scope with parralax adjustment...is there any other way around this error...

    Repeatable mounting. If you settle behind the rifle exactly the same everytime, parallax will not be a problem. Does your rifle fit you well? LOP? eye relief? cheek hight and angle?

    Reloading is kinda scientific.

    Benchrest reloading is the next step in accuracy past 100 yards.

    Bullet prep and pointing seem to be really important.
