Re: I am indeed a lousy shot

Thanks again, I will definitely look at a better bullet. I realize that I am going to have to commit many more practice sessions at 300, before I can even think about trying for more. I don't have the money to build a solid 1000 yard gun, but I would like to think my Ruger would easily be capable of 600 plus.

Re: I am indeed a lousy shot

i have two 300 win mags. both have muzzle brakes. both are rem 700 senderos. one has a jewel trigger. the other the has been adjusted down to a a manageble weight. both have higher power scopes( 6.5X20 vx3) which i think helps in target shooting. i am sure the 2.5 x 8 is a very clear scope, especially for hunting. i always start with the accuracy loads in nosler and sierra manuals.and i use lapua brass. i would try a 168 cbt or a 175 matchking with the accuracy load from the respective manual. ron

Re: I am indeed a lousy shot

Thanks for all of the replies, been offline for a while playing wargames. Will try some different bullets once I exhaust this supply. I will use these to work on breathing and trigger pull, they shoot less than 1" at 100 so they will work fine for that purpose. Thanks again.
