    Your gun is currently shooting just a bit over .54 MOA groups. There are many variables that effect accuracy as the distances increase. IF the gun held the same .54 all the way to 800yds it would be shooting 4.3" groups, but the only way to know is shoot it at that distance. Chrony's are average at best from what i have seen. There are much better chrono's out there, but it is still a good tool for checking loads. Your extreme velocity spreads is one thing that will effect groups at long ranges. Case prep, bullet prep, ect. Go Shoot it!
