    I left the 738 yard impact on the target when I set it out the first shot hit it right of center and high, just like the 738 yards shot. The next shot landed just barley over the target by a very small amount. I printed a drop chart with a .800 BC and it called for .1 Milrad less than when using the Sierra listed BC of .768. I calculated that this would lower the impact 2.5416" at 706. I fired the next round and here is the result

    You do realise that this thread is about the .338 Lapua Magnum and NOT the .338 Win Mag?
