How accurate are the hat bullets?
I shot 3 groups with the 265s at 800 yards the other day with my APS 338 AM here they are.
First group was about 3 MOA higher than my point of AIM. I was using my drops for the 300 SMK.
I lost control of one
The group consists of two bigger holes on the left and the one one the right. The two center holes were with another rifle. That is one of those great big stubby markers I put in for referance, I should have used something else but it is what I had in my hand to mark the target. I actually should have taken the pics before I used the marker to mark the hole, but didnt think about taking pics till I was through shooting.
I had to try again.
I adjust the elevation down, but not enough, and these three were just about on the paper. But I did keep em tight.
I was tickled. Adjusted the scope down warned the wife I would be shooting outside the shooting room and that it would be very load and shot this group prone from a bipod using my hand as a rear bag. I would say that it is the best I have done without a proper rear bag.
I shot this group the day before with my 06-AI using the 180 HATs
It is the bottom 4 shots that I am reffering to. The two above it were from other calibers.
Now how do they perform on animals? I will probably not know until this coming weekend. I had a hunt planned in TX to shoot a whitetail and for the wife to shoot an exotic. I think I am going to let the wife shoot the whitetail and I am going to put the smack down on some axis does to test out the performance. But from the looks of the photo posted it looks promising.
