Re: Someone help me understand what's going on
I don't know of any gun that shoots that flat. Usually, dead on at 300 means we have to be at least a little high at 100. So, that leaves us a couple of options;
1. Are you sure that 300 was really 300? Any chance it was only 200 yds?
Not likely I know, but had to throw that out there.
2. Do you know for sure that your scope moves the poi the
advertised amount? I've seen alot of scopes that didn't. 4 clicks would
move the poi 2 or 3 inches at 100 type of thing. If you last dialed for 450
and then dialed back down for 100, I suppose it's possible that the
adjustment went too far in one direction..........does your scope track
reliably and consistant?? This should always be tested IMO.
3. Sounds like you've got something that will not stay in alignment. Gun or scope isn't holding zero. This is my best guess based on your posted info. Usually, groups are terrible if that's the case, but you didn't say exactly what kind of precision you're getting at any of those distances.?
There might be other possibilities, but those 3 came to mind.
