7mmpredator- Do you really use 59 grains of REtumbo with 140 Bergers? What primers?Hey Daniel,
I shoot a 6.5-284 Phoenix 1 in 9 twist with 140 Bergers. I'm getting between 1/2" and 3/4" groups. According to Berger 1 in 8 would be better! I've taken an antelope and an elk in the past two years. Both with one shot right at 300 yards. The elk stumbled 2 steps and dropped. I stay closer to 1/2" groups with 142 SMKs and H4831 but the 59 grains of Retumbo and Bergers put me at 3050 fps and I wanted that for the elk. It looks like I'll be taking it back to Wy for trophy mulie this year for the trifecta!
Good luck gun)
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
