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

Re: 7mm groups @ 200

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.

Re: 7mm groups @ 200

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.

Bullet Prep — Giving You the Long Range Edge | The Reloading Press

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

Bullet prep and pointing seem to be really important.
