hello all! i've been lurking around this site amazed by the length of the shots made by its members for a while. i'm but a lowly georgia boy who never sees whitetail opportunites past 200 yards, so its quite a site to see when somebody out west makes 1200 look easy...
that said, i bought my first hunting rifle a few months back and now i need some advice from some real sharpshooters.
2007 model Tikka T3 lite in .270, Tasco world class 3-9X40 (to be upgraded soon) zeroed at 150yds., Caldwell 9-13'' adjustable bipod. somewhat humble, but a good gun for the money and my location.
anyway, i've been doing some MOA testing (at 100 yards, of course) today with 3 different rounds, and here's what i've come up with. targets are 1" bullseye with 1" ring spacing:
Remington Core-Lokt whitetail pro 130 grain
these were the best groups that i got today.
Hornady Custom 130 grain (3060 fps)
Winchester Ballistic Silvertip 130 grain
I understand theyre high because im zeroed at 150 and im shooting at 100. are the groups i'm shooting expectably good given the circumstances? like i said, i'm a noob to this and im just seeking any opinions/advice anyone has to offer. thanks a ton!
