It was a 168gr HPBT factory load from SSA Ammunition. under $20 a box at Cabelas right now.Tell us Zoti, what grain bullet, and was that a handload or a factory loading. If factory what brand, also if it was a reload give us the particulars. Inquiring minds want to know.
Well, that all depends on what you are hunting and where you are hunting it. White tail deer not likely...........but mule deer or Antelope on the plains or sheep in the mountains, 500 and longer shots are common. Also Coyote and prairie dogs. He is from Texas after all. Plus, if you are confident in yourself and your equipment out to 1000 yards or so, as far as technique and your DOPE, that makes shorter shots childs play if and when you do encounter one.That was a nice group. You won't have to make many 500 yard shots when you are hunting, but that is a good confidence builder.
BDC reticle and I used it. It's spot on. I also use an app on the iPhone to calculate where to hold.Very nice! Do you have the BDC or Nikoplex MONARCH ? Pic of your rig? I agree, shooting to 500 yards and having a group like that is quite a confidence builder when you finally get to the field. I know there's some places to shoot prairie dogs in far W. Tx, 8 hours from where you live.
