Re: Handload Accuracy
With 52 gr SMK in my .22-250 in the course of about 1 hour I shot a 0.333" group at 100 yds, 3+" at 200m and 4" at 500m. All were 5 shot groups. My Model 7 300 SAUM shoots the same group size consistantly at 200 and 300m. Every group shot at both ranges has been within 0.2" of each other, and the 300m group is normally tighter.
My opinion is that I focus better on mechanics at longer ranges because any mistake is magnified by distance. I have been fighting that line of thought, and two weeks ago shot my best to date group at 500m of 2.2" with a factory Sendero in 300 SAUM.
