    2950 looks good to me. Puts you one 1/4 click off at both distances. One high and one low.

    thank you very much, as i said no pressure signs so this will be my load

    i don't have much trouble knocking off 3l milk jugs and the target shot was .714 moa

    for 3 shots at 700y . i just need more practice reading the breeze .

    cheers D
