Re: 7mm Rem. Mag vs. .308 Winchester
I also have the same problem with the X bullet regarding accuracy. I have 2 very differant 308's 1 will shoot the 180 XBT w/o the coating at around 2" at 500 yards. It does not like any other X bullet in any configuration. It of course has outstanding terminal performance. This bullet is 1.400 inches long and has a BC of over .550 Due to the desighn, it has 80% of the bullets weight behind the mushroom. I recoverd 2 out of a 1500 pound moose and they both weighed 180 grains!
The other rifle will only shoot the 150 XBT with the XLC coating well. All others, forget it. The cool thing is that this load performs the same every day and delivers well over 2900 FPS while maintaining right around .5 MOA and of course, has great terminal performance.

The "partition" bullet also has good weight retention and alot of weight always behind the mushroom.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
