    I was just trying out some new ammo. Could anyone explain to me why a 300 win mag sighted in at 200 yards with 180 grain Federal Ammo
    (Cheap soft point wal-mart) would place 180 Grain Hornady SST's 2 inches lower at the same distance?

    I would have thought the SST's would have been shooting higher if anything.

    Different load, bullet, velocity, etc.. Even just changing bullets I would expect POI to move.
