    Another trip to the range.

    I decided to go out to one of the other ranges in the area this morning to see where a couple of my rifles shoot after they have been sulking in the safe for a week or three & to sight in the 7-375R so I can take it hunting.
    After I had sighted in the 7-375R at 100 I went to shoot the target I had put up on to discover it was hidden by branches
    I went up the hill & sorted that minor dilemma which allowed even more time for the 7-375R to cool down.

    I consulted Shooter & entered all the necessary data, then wrote down the conditions & elevation required for the three rifles I had with me for 618 yards
    I shoot lying down with a bipod & rear bag, similar to what I would out in the feild.
    My Barrett 98B 338 Norma was first up with 11.25 moa elevation, for the 300 Gen I @ 2780, for a 0.36 moa group



    Off to a great start with good first shot placement

    Then I shot the 7-375R with 9.25 moa for the 180 Hybrids @ 3150, for a 0.456 moa group



    Reasonable first shot placement, not too bad for a 3.7kg rifle with scope.

    Then I dragged the 338 Lapua Improved out with 9.6 moa for the 300 Gen II @ 3040, for a 0.85 moa group



    Near perfect first & second shot placement only to have me wreck the group with the last shot....... bugger.

    I achieved what I set out to do so I'm a happy camper, if it was a Deer I was shooting at all shots would have resulted in a fuller freezer

    It is interesting to note the difference in ballistic performance of the bullets & how that related to the POI on the target.



    The 180 suffered the most with the wind & it would have been interesting to see how the 162 would have gone in relation to it.

    Up by the target the wind was blowing from right to left at around 3-4 mph but the wind travels down the gully & obviously does some funny things so if you dial for the perceived wind you are actually dialling the wrong way....... bugger.

    Wow, those are fantastic results! I had never heard of the 7-375 ruger before now and it's making for an interesting read. The 162 Amax groups from your other thread are amazing, who knew a Rem 700 could shoot that well

    Good result there. The poi I think has more to do with varying wind than any real difference in projectile performance though. You would have had to have shot them at exactly the same time to have any worthwhile indication.

    The wind was pretty constant until I packed up to leave, picked the target up etc......then it died completely, typical.....

    I was shooting the rifles about 2-3minutes apart, the amount of time it takes to pick one up & replace it with another, dial the scope off the book & stick a round into it.

    Then I fired the shots one after the other, not waiting 5mins etc between to cool the barrel.

    na not buyin it. Nice shooting and tidy groups but theres nothing even slightly significant in the poi from a balistic performance point of view of one three shot group shot in a spot where the wind " does funny things"
