    at 300 yards 1 MOA is 3.14". 2.75"/3.14"=.88 MOA. I would see how it does at say 400 or 500 yards before changing anything, nice shooting.

    And I do stand corrected since 1 MOA = 1.047" at 100 yards.

    .88 it is

    It all depends on what your intentions are with it. That's plenty good enough to hunt with out a ways but won't break any records. It is good shooting and I agree I would see how far you can push it out there. Nice job!

    Are OCW tuned?
    Fine tune the seating depth and see what happens.

    one Moa is 1.047 times your range divided by 100. So lets say 750 yards, divide that by 100 so you get 7.5. multiply that by 1.047, and you get 7.85". So 7.85" is 1 moa at 750 yards. Lets try 1000 yards, so divide 1000 by 100, you get 10. Multiply that by 1.047 and you get 10.472". So 10.472" is one moa at 1000 yards. Do you follow?

    You are in the ballpark and it likely all small tweaks to get things a bit tighter.
    Play with seating depth (as mentioned).
    H-1000 is pretty forgiving, but I would check your OCW tune if you have already done so.

    What sort of gun weight are you working with?
