Well after lurking here for a year, this site convinced me that shooting at 100 yards wasn't good enough anymore. Well just great, now I am ruined. I discovered that while I can 95% of the time place the 1st shot on coyotes, deer, or caribou at ranges over 250 yards, I apparently don't have what it takes to punch paper at a mere 300 yards. Shot my Ruger M77 MKII topped with a Leupold VXIII 2.5X8X32 in 300 Win Mag at the loacal 300 yard range. Loads were 180gr Rem PSPs over H4831SC, and IMR7828, Winchester cases trimmed to min length, and CCI Mag primers. Shot a 5/8" group at 100 after making some minor scope adjustments. Moved the target out to 300 yards, best group was a 4shot string with 7828 that all landed inside a 3" circle. The rest were more of a pattern that a group, any of them would have killed a coyote, but made me realize just what it really takes to punch paper at more than my normal 100 yards. I have killed a groundhog at a shade over 600 yards with my 22-250, but it has a really good trigger, the Ruger has an atrocious trigger, which really became apparent when trying to duplicate exact aiming for a so called score. This could beome a hazard to my bank account, not to mention my health if my wife gets a clue of how much money I could spend trying to punch paper at extended ranges.
