Re: MOA help!

Josh, the bullet you're using is not the best choice for long range.

Values in read mean velocities are subsonic. So about 550 will be your max range
with that type of bullet since the BC is pretty low.
The one on the left zero is at 200 yds and the other one at 100 yds.

You need to shoot at different ranges and measure what it does. Do at least 3 shot groups and measure to the center of the group. And we'll see what it does.

Re: MOA help!

So this is for 150 grain bullets correct? And what bullet type and grain should you suggest I use? I like the core lokt bullets because they expand big and make big holes

Yes, 150 gr. That's a good hunting bullet, the problem is its mighty low BC (Ballistic Coefficient). By looking at the table below, from remington, you see that the 150 gr. drops 61.2" at 500 yards and the Premier Accu tip drops only 37.7" and the Premiere Scirocco Bonded drops 38.2".



Now compare the factory calculated BCs:




Now, using the Scirocco Bonded 130 gr. at MV = 3060

Re: MOA help!

Ohhh I see... Well I'll probably move it to 130 grain and use the accutips if they are good at expanding. Ive heard either one shot and it drops or you won't find it because it won't leave a blood trail (accu tips)

The higher the BC the better... Just make sure that whatever you use shoots good in your rifle. The Siroccos are excellent from what I hear, though I've never used them on game.

Note:
ALL DROP CHARTS WERE CALCULATED FOR AN ELEVATION OF 88 FEET. I FIGURE FOR YOUR HUNTING AREAS AN ELEVATION OF 750 FEET WOULD BE A GOOD AVERAGE.

FOR TESTING THE LOADS WHERE YOU LIVE, WE NEED TO CALCULATE DROP CHARTS FOR THAT ELEVATION. LET ME KNOW...

Re: MOA help!

I have decided to use the premier accutip 130 grain bullets. Can you make me another moa drop chart like the one you made for the 150 grain? or shoul i just use the same chart? i really like these 130 grain accutips better. i have it sighted in at 100 yards. i just need a chart like the last one to make the long shots
