Whats the difference in MV ? Should be at least 300fps right ? At long range the 225 would retain a lot more energy and would end up going faster than a 150 and thus would actually drop less at the end.
Well I am embarrassed to say it, but this is the group I just shot, with yardstick to indicate how much they were dropping:
Do the holes still seem a bit odd?? It is clear from how much lower they are hitting that these were doing exactly as you thought.
These were at 100 yards w/ some cross wind and were over 76 gr of Retumbo. These gave me sticky extraction so it looks like I need to go no higher than 75 gr and work with seating depth some.
