Re: Why is 7mm not good in long range competition?
I am wanting a rifle light enough to carry around hunting. I was just looking to the other world of target rifles for some tips, but it may not be an accurate interface. Comparing the results of Berger and other match bullets with results from TSX, Accubonds etc. may be futile.
But none the less I have been limited to about 400 yards or maybe a little farther because of the size of my groups.
I'm talking about several different 7 mags, 25-06, 270 win. Rifles that will shoot less than 1MOA @ 100 and even 200 yards. These rifles's groups have opened up to about 8" @ 400 yards.
So I am desperate enough, I started a project with a Broughton #5, 1-11 twist with their canted lands rifling, hopefully the 8" groups will occur much farther out with .30 cal 180 grainers.
