Very nice. How was your accuracy in lower grains and how far are you off the lands??

I used some H1000 loads and had 1/4" to 1/2" groups at 100 yards, this load I used another 300 win mag that it really liked so I gave it a try off the start of this one since it was a exact build. im about 15 thousanths off the lands

Pretty hard to beat and why I shoot a 300 win over a 7mm. Non believers run these numbers yourself.

Congrats on a great shooting rifle and a killing machine.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Here are a couple pics of a 2 shot group at 806 yards, it measured 1.080 inches from center of bullet impact...I would have shot a 5 shot but with the way things are with bullets, powder ect. I didn't think it was necessary. I did shoot 1,031, 1104, and 1257 yards and everything was Dead on! thought you guys would like to see a little update of what the group turned into down range.
