hold true at long range like 600 - 1000 yds? I know that's why we take em out
and put em to the test but what has your experience been?
your going to get as many opinions as there are days in the week.
we hunt and shoot in a mountainous area. to my mind that makes it easier.
after working up good loads for 100 yd. shooting, we only shoot at that distance or any target again to recheck zero.
after that its all shooting at small rocks. we could care less about paper groups.
if we can consistantly hit small rocks at the chosen distance what else matters. these are hunting rifles and thats all we care about.
its worked very well for almost 40 years in our camp, and lots of others also in that part of the world.
