    I shot some 95 gr Berger vld hunting bullets in my Cooper M22 243 today, I only fired 2 groups of 3 because of time constraints, my rifle is a 1-10 twist, the 1st group was .275 and the 2nd was .248 at 100 yards, can I assume the bullets will remain stabilized up to 500 yards? I am shooting 43 grs of RL19 with a Fed 210 primer in a 26 inch barrel. I guess I am wondering that if they are stable at 100 yards would it make sense they will be at 500?

    Must be a dumb question.

    Best way to find out how they will perform is to shoot them at your desired distances.

    I'd be surprised if they weren't stable. Should be fine on a whitetail if you do your part and great on a coyote at longer ranges.

    If they leave the barrel stable, they stay stable till atleast transonic flight. Not a dumb question at all, if you already knew the answer you wouldn't ask. :)
