Strange accuracy at LR-Thought?
I have two loads developed for my 300WSM.
#1 is a Berger VLD, 210gr that is .194 center to center 5 shot group at 100yds-honestly.
#2 is a Nosler 168 Ballistic tip thats about a .75 group at 100yds. Didn't develop this any further as it was planned to by my "shorter range" deer load and .75 moa was good enough.
I was shooting at a 10" steel gong at 833yds. All ranged with the G7, no wind, nice warm calm day from rock solid prone with bags and everything.
The 168 nosler was ringing the gong every time, all too easy. Really it was a laser beam.
The 210 Berger, which is much more "accurate" at 100yds, was missing half the time. They were near misses, but misses none the less.
Any idea's how this all works out?
Is it a "bullet go to sleep" thing?
I am honestly lost on how a much more accurate load, that is such a higher quality bullet, can be all over the place, while the "factory seconds" ballistic tips were 100%........
