I guess I need a little encouragement. I have spent 50 years with conventional optics chasing velocity to reduce the amount of my holdovers. I am trying to leave that behind and enter the world of dial up scopes. I have a new rifle and a Nightforce 2.5-10. My problem is between my ears. I have not been able to develop a load for my new rifle (300 WSM with 215 gr Bergers) that will successfully give me around 2850 fps. I have good loads at 2650 to 2700. I should be able to say that is fine, loads are consistent, ES are small etc and rely on my BR2 rangefinder and Nightforce scope. I know I should, but I am still struggling with it. It should be noted I am primarily a hunter and have a self imposed max range on game of 600 yards. I like to shoot steel etc beyond that for fun. Would appreciate it if someone could confirm that I should forget velocity as the end all and look at accuracy and then my good equipment. Thanks.
