Heres a better pic of the group, not zoomed in as far, but still blurry!

Re: Smallest group I\'ve shot at 525 yards

Here is my rifle, bone stock except for trigger job, which was all that was done at the time I shot that group, but it was later glass bedded, only bout 1 year ago. Doesn't really seem to help any with grouping though. Other then that, its just got some reloads through her. Oh, and when I shot that group, the MK4 was not on it, my vx2, 6-18 was on it. The MK4 was added last year. This group was shot about 2 years ago. Not a sendero, but shoots just as good as one!!

There should be a "macro" function on your camera -- simple on/off...the button looks like a flower...this is for close focusing.

dont zoom, just move the camera close

DISCLAIMER:

Now, i tried to tell goodgrouper this awhile ago to get a tight shot on an expanded bullet and he got all bent out of shape over me trying to help...this is only a suggestion to fix your blurry pics, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, i'm not demeaning your abilities in any way.

Good luck,

Rem Man,

Congratulations on some fine shooting.
Those M700 LSS are shooters. I have a 338 RUM and my best 3 shot group at 300 yds with a Nosler 210 gr PT factory second is 1.285", two shots were .590".

Regards,

JD338

Re: Smallest group I\'ve shot at 525 yards

Thanks for the tip JB. I'll try that in the near future. I have 13 loads, loaded up for my .270 and I will likely take pics and put them on here for all to see and help me pick a load. Everytime I try to take pics of groups, I zoom in because it looks so far away, but then they turn out blurry. This should help. I am not the best photographer thats for sure. I didn't even take it in high school.

Re: Smallest group I\'ve shot at 525 yards

Thanks JD, yah those LSS's are pretty dang good shooters. I debated on the 300 rum or the 338 rum when I was at sportsmans. They told me they werne't sure if they had 1 or the other, and I told them that I wanted one right now. I am kinda impatiend, kinda shows my age [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Anywyas, the guy came back and said he had a 300 RUm, but no 338 rum's, I said I'll take it. I also debated on whether or not to get the sendero. that was kinda a easy one, I hunt steep canyons for elk, and I didnt like the idea of packing a varmint weight rifle up and down them canyons. I wanted the accuracy of the sendero though. I dont really feel like I sacrificed to much in the accuracy department, my LSS shoots just fine for elk/bears size of vitals out to 1000 yards. My rangefinder is only a 800, so my shots on game are limiited to 800 at most, usually 700. I need the swarovski 1500. that will be my next purchase after I get a 300 rum custom built because i want to take full advantage of what the rifle and caliber has to offer. My goal in 1-2 years is to take an animal at 1000 yards. Wont be to hard to achieve I think.

Rem Man,

Yep, LSS are shooters and not too heavy either.
You should hook up with GoodGrouper, that dude can shoot! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
