I decided to make this post after some conversations and posts I have read. I tune at 1000 yards, strictly. From my experience the tune window at 1k is pretty narrow and hard to pin point without shooting at distance. I also have respect for the animals I hunt. That said, its my opinion and experience from 1000s of rounds though actual paper targets at 1000 yards that tuning a hunting rifle to shoot sub .5 moa groups at that range is far more difficult than it is to do the same at short range. Yes I am saying that a .5 moa tune at 100 doesn't mean much at all about how the rifle will group at 1000. I have seen posts with 3/4moa groups and guys are happy to go "long range hunting". My personal criteria is sub .5 moa at the max distance I plan to shoot. Im not trying to tell you how well your gun should shoot, how you should tune, or how far you should shoot. What I am saying is to shoot a paper target at distance and you may be surprised. Shooting rocks will always make you think they are going in the same place. Shoot a paper target at the max distance you want to be able to hunt before you decide that your rifle is ready to take into the field.
