I shot 4 times at 1,000 after work today,,light snow is good for reading wind,,I havent chronied this load and I guessed 2600 fps and was 1.5 MOA high at 1,000 first shot,,made hits on shot 2,3 and 4 on volley ball sized targets and decided it was too cold and wet to be layin on the ground,,
gonna take my 4 wheeler over and put up a target very soon and see how it goes,,I will be happy with 5 shots in ten inches but we will see how it goes,

dope for 1,000 is easy to remember though,,30 MOA up and .5 for ever one mph wind

I have had it on 17x21 steel at 1525,,

at 1,000 yards my Leupold scope still has 60 MOA of elevation,,at 1525 I still have 30 MOA,,I honestly believe it would zero at a mile with the 300 Bergers.

with a good spotter I think I could get on a 55 gallon barrel that far..

I've always had problems calculating for wind drift. How did you come up with the .5 for every 1 MPH of wind.Are there any good charts out there ??
