So I got out and did one more test and the best group was. The 154 interbonds @3185 fps here’s my 3 shot group View attachment 200995
Nice, you are set to go. If you are pushing them at 3,000 fps you are good to 600 yds or more

I loaded some 154gr Interbonds as well with 7828 and will see if they shoot good.

Best of luck and stay safe

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
