    20131026_091943.jpg shot a 1000 yard target with my 6 mm cm a couple weeks ago..3 shot group 1 moa above 5 inch sticker was the first group . Then 2 shot group low and right then an awome 2.5 inch 3 shot group right. Then the last time shot group just right was about half moa. Not to shabby for a guy learning this stuff. Iam pretty proud of this target. Gona put it on the wall in the garage..

    Keep up the studying...

    Impressive shots.

    How many minutes or seconds do you shoot all three? What was the wind like?

    Wind was left to right at about 5 mph . I would shoot wait about 2 minutes then shoot again . Drive down every couple of shoots . Was about 32 degrees that day.

    When I was shooting 49.0 gr. of H-1000 my 5 shot group at 1000 yards was 6.5" tall, 3.5" wide. I dropped the charge down to 48.7 and next time out to 1000 I shot a 5 and a 10 shot group. Both were just under 4.5". I took off just a touch over 2" of vertical. This is my Tac rifle, 48.7 runs the 115 DTAC at 3153 FPS out of a 27" Krieger. At 49.0 it was 3225 fps.

    I have a 6CM 30" BR rifle that at 800 yards my best ten shot group was 2", it is throated with the long reamer. I have not chronoed this rifle but my come ups figure out to be about 3300 FPS. The load in this rifle is 49.0 H-1000 with a 115 DTAC. This 2" group was when I had 1200 rounds down the barrel, Joe says they are just starting to shoot good at that round count.

    The Tac Rifle I started shooting it in Feb. '07, it now has 3800+ rounds on it and I checked it at 600 recently and it shot a .4 moa 5 shot group. Not to shabby for 3800 rounds. I have a 28" Lawton barrel chambered in 6CM waiting to screw on. This one has been broke in and Melonited.
