I forgot to mention that many were shot between 900 and 1400 yds. , the conditions, sutch as wind , up hill ,down hill, and light have a lot more infulance at that differance than anything else!

Talk to goodgrouper he conducted some tests to see what the influence would be in bearing surface discrepancies. You know the wind blows them in and out. Maybe the wind blew your shots into the game you were shooting at. Lets not use your real world experiences as scientific evidence...[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I thought it was gun, bullets, primers, powder, cases and scopes. Light has never really sigificantly influenced my shooting on my private 978 yard range. When develping trajectory charts, I always do it prior to the sun getting above the trees. When we are shooting benchrest, the sun going behind clouds can really wreak havoc on a good group. But for long range shooting, we always wait for the weather to cooperate prior to ignition. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Read your above quotes. You were schooling me on the most important parts of long range shooting.

I think smeltzer is on to something with this wind thing...

I think wind will have more of an effect that variations in bullets.

Just load the bullets and shoot them. Your shooting skills are so much more important than any obsessing you will do over bullets or other stuff like that. I used to be like you, worrying over every last detail. Bottom line is that most of us are not bench rest shooters, we are hunters and the fact is that most of our rifles shoot better than we do. Yes, a lot of the things we all read about about how to ring every last bit of accuracy from our rifles or ammo are true, however, the vast majority of us just don't shoot that good to see any benefit.

I'm not knocking guy's shooting abilities. I know a lot of guys here are incredible shooters. I'm just saying that there is minimal if any gain in using bench rest techniques in hunting situations - even long range.

The time you spend sorting thousands of bullets would be better served shooting.
