After getting home from the range today I was looking over my targets. All shot with a 6.5-284 at 200 yards using 140 A-Max. What caught my attention was all visible (not touching) holes had powder marks along the edge from approx. 12 O'clock to 6 O'clock. The left side of the hole approx. 7 O'clock To 11 O'clock has a clean edge that is peeled back. I there any explanation for this or am I Nuts!!!??? Can a fairly strong cross wind cause this at 200 yards?

Makes sense, targets were on right side of backer. Just never noticed it before.

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

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
