  • 300Win mag Still Shooting Good

    I went to the range today on my way to work this morning and had time to set up and shoot a five shot group with my 300Win Mag Savage 116FHSS. My rifle and load did their part I let down a little on my end. I put the first four shots in a group that measured .211" and then I called my fifth shot as a flyer as it did not feel or go like the first four and the five shot group ended up being .601" Here is the group. I was shooting my 165gr Sierra HPBT hunting load I killed a deer with this year at 140yds and I use this on hogs and coyote. I really love this rifle. Here is the group


    Target is not to scale, I am sighted in about 2 1/4" high at 100yds

    That should do the trick BT - curious as everybody I know always measures the group size from center to center of the 2 holes of largest spread - do you always use the outside of the hole?

      I use the outside extreme edges of the group and then minus bore.

          Yes, it is just a more practical way to do it and fast and it will really work with the small caliber holes real good.
