Being stuck indoors as sick as a dog, idle hands of the self employed are hard to keep still!! Here is a picture of last Friday afternoon’s boys’ time…
I enjoy the crack but after 3-4 shots I am done, however my friend wanted to test out his different home loads.
I am all ways happy to oblige as it is interesting to see what the different loads do what, I use factory rounds and have worked out through practicing on my own how they perform.
Distance 250 meters
Weather over cast with a 6-7 mph cross wind.
Remington 700 .243 75 grain accui tips.
Ruger .243 75 v-max grain home loads.
I shot off my quad sticks and the 3 rounds on the left white bull are mine.
The right bull is from a bi-pod and also the 3 around the eye, the rest were shot of quad sticks. To be fair my gun is set 13mm high at 150 yds and I shoot of the quad sticks 3-4 days a week out foxing.
Bullet drop at that range was only 2.5"- 3" and not 7.1 as calculated.
Muzzle -1.5 Velocity 3375 MOA 0"
100 0 3065 0"
200 -2.1 2776 1"
280 -7.1 2558 2.4"
