What do you expect of you and your rifle at 1500 yards? I'm not sure if my expectations are too high or if I still have some work to do.
I guess I would be hoping for better than the last time. Since this is a hunting site I assume you are practicing a hunting shot. Then your expectation should be min 10" cold bore every time. Less than this the shot should not be taken on an animal.
If you are just testing yourself and equipment. My self personally, I don't think I can shoot better than 1/2 moa with my equipment and my ability. Shooting rocks or targets, walking in a shot and seeing if I can repeat it is simply information gathering. And a lot of fun.

I just wanted to see what you guys get for groups at 1500. ... Thanks again.
I just wanted to see what you guys get for groups at 1500. I can shoot 1/2 moa at 500 just fine. (I would assume that most posting here can do that) I was just curious how much your groups open at 1500. I would assume that if you can shoot 1/2 moa at 1500, you can shoot considerably better at 500, but that is an assumption, and is a good part of why I'm asking the question. I can't shoot 1/2 moa at 1500.
I don't hunt at or near 1500 and don't intend to. I have zero problem with those that can and choose to do so. I really just want some basic info from people that shoot at these ranges. From what I can tell, there aren't a whole lot of us. If I posted this question on the wrong site, my apologies.
Just curious if any of you bother with shooting groups at 1500 and if so, what you're seeing on paper. Your input is meaningful and sensible in the sense that it would indicate wether my results are similar to those attempting to do the same thing. We all have the same variables to deal with that do show up on paper.
