I am off Red hind stalking next week and went out today to check my howa .30-06 to get it bang on.
last time I used it was on a range day in Wales where we were shooting out to 400yrds so I needed to rezero.
Using sako superhammerhead 150gr my first shot was 10 inches high as expected.
Soon dialed down and shot a nice group of 1.5inch at 100metres.
Decided to take another couple of shots this time using remington 165 express corelokt.
Shot a nice group of 1/2 inch, however, the group was a good 7 inches low than where I had aimed.
I was amazed that this would be the difference between the shots for the small increase in bullet weight and bloody glad I did check, If I had loaded up with the heavier bullets in the field by mistake I would be well off target.
Any one else had similar experiences?
