    Gamedog how big is the steel plate you are shooting, and how much wind when you shot that group. Thanks Tim

    The gong is the bottom of a large propane tank. I think it's around 24".

    The gunsmith who built the rifle actually did the test groups on the gong shooting in a 15-20 mph wind:eek: Montana usually is quit windy:mad:

    My standard load is 93 grains of H1000 with a 300gr SMK...velocity is 2870fps out of my 31" barrel. 94 grains shot 2930, but the es was lower (es of 6) with the 93 gr load.The 93 gr load is the left target..94 on the right.

    Here are the rifles....

    I have shot on paper out to 805yds...It holds just over 1/2 moa at that range. My brother owns the other one and he called me tonight as was shooting clay pigeons at 900 with his. The Edge is a very easy to shoot caliber as you probably already know.
