when shooting my 6mmppc at 300 yards i get 5 shot groups of about an inch and a half is that considerd ok.what sort of standard for accuracy do you long range guys want to get at 300 400 500 ect before you go hunting .thanks
Hi Roe,
I use a 6mmBR for varmint shooting. Shooting 87grain V-max at 3000fps out of a 27inch 1-10 Twist I get about 1 inch 5-shot groups. I would consider 1.5 inches to be good. I haven't shot my BR beyond 400yds (not yet anyway) due to the land I shoot on. For rabbits, magpies, wild cats (the domestic version) out to 400yds its OK. Have also used it on wild goats out to 200 yds.

Is this COLD BORE grouping we're talking, or BR grouping, or plinking?

If you can pull your rifle out any time and hit a 1.5" bull at 300 with a single shot off a bipod or whatever your field shooting system involes, I'd say it's ready for hunting. That's not easy to do for most.
just as i would take a hunting shot in the field using a harris bipod and rear rest.
