I took my 204 with me to the range to shot while my barrel would cool on my 270.

My first 5 shot group at 300 yds, using factory honady 32gr. POA was the cross hair on bullseye only one bullet hit target at the bottom of page and the other 4 were not on paper but at bottom of the edge. This group is at the first mil dot of my scope so I do not have to adjust my scope.

Second 5 shot group at 300, using factory hornady 40gr. POA is the first mil dot at bullseye. Whats funny it that the 40gr'ers POI is close to the crosshairs POA. This does not make sense to me.

Can anyone explain why?
Sticks and stones may break my bones but I promise that I will hurt you.
