For me, a first round hit on a 3/4 minute target from 1200-1800 yards leaves a grin. Smokin' fur of any kind makes me giggle or shout. Shootin' anything off a bench....naah
I'm trying to get my son dialed in for a 500yd clay shoot.

He's shooting a lot of .3-.4" groups at 100yds. ..perhaps wind since they tend to be horizontal? But, there's the occasional explained/unexplained flyer.

It's shot a lot of .2 or smaller groups.

Since we've never tweaked seating depth, I'm curious to see if there's anything to gain there.

He shot some 30mm and 60mm clays on Sat at 500yds. It was almost a minute less drop than before. I later chronied and the new Lot of Varget is 100fps faster than the last. Once we got dialed in, it was pretty dead on.

My concern for him to have a good showing is (1) confidence in the load, (2) making the best use of sighters to get POA/POI quickly, and (3) paying close attention to changes in conditions.

I just don't want him to get discouraged the first time he tries to compete. It should eb a good learning experience.

Re: removing the plunger

Fallow your sighters, that is a major advantage that you get them, do you get or have wind flags on range?Do you get to spot for him, if so have a good communication system for adjustments
