How far out do you shoot at game? Or do you just target shoot?

    it would be worth it to me to make a least one trip to a 500yd range with a couple of differant loads to ck my 100yd group. those are very nice

    During years when I have more practice time, I'll take a good poke out to 1000 yards. I've had some personal projects going on full time since spring of 2009 and I'm finishing next month so I'll be back to my old self shooting regularly in KY where I can take long shots. Just been too busy the last 3 years.

    I'll be in CO a couple of days before my season opens and will be able to shoot all day for 2 days with unlimited distances. That said, I'm not planning on taking a shot unless I'm confident and this year with these 4 new rifles, I'm going to keep my shots under 500 unless my 2 days of practice changes my mind. I'm not one to hunt/shoot at distances unless I'm REALLY comfortable with everything before I consider taking a shot. Any doubt, no trigger pull.

    I would load the other ones that you wanna test and shoot them to see how they do and then take the loads I like and shoot them at 500 when you get a chance. If I was going hunting soon and didn't have time then I would just load up the 1/4" group and run with it.

    Lots of good ideas and info. I prefer H1000 for 140s in 6.5x284. I've seen some squirrelly things from Retumbo, and lot to lot variations in H4831 are bigger than I like. I stopped searching for velocity once I found accuracy a long time ago. Life's to short to chase velocity and accuracy at the same time. 2900 fps is plenty.
