that would make shooting alot easier if we didnt have to worry about wind. i will continue to work on the load im hoping that i can get a solid 1/2 moa at 600 consistant but im not up to it yet ive just started shooting again since deer season. i will be testing this load and gun at 1000yards next week. i dont know that you can truely ever be completely finished with a load its always a work in progress.

Great pics and shots. Do you ever find the truck moving? I tried shooting out mine once and the light wind was making just enough movement to cause things to be off a little. Might not be you being shaky, might be the truck moving a little. Just an observation.
Ballistically Speaking, Im about a 300 FP with a BC of -1.
