I was out tonight with the GF plinking at the range
She was working on a brick of 22's , ventalating pop cans
I had a bunch of the 165 gr 30 cal modifyed silouete bullet loaded in the 308 with 11 gr of Promo
I am guessing around 1400 fps
I was shooting paper mainly at 50 and 100 yds , getting about 1.25" and 2" , 5 shot groups at the 2 ranges
An other shooter left , leaving some clean targets at 200 yds
So I figured I would see how much drop I was getting at 200 with a 100 yd zero
When I went down to see , I was shocked , by seeing the 2 groups I had shot
To be 1.75" and 1.875"
So I shot 2 more 5 shot groups at both 100 and 200 yds
100 yd groups were just smaller than 2" and the 200 yd groups were both just over 1.75"
Not going to say these are great groups
But how am I shooting smaller 200 yd groups
With everything the same , as I was just randomly picking rounds out of a 100 rnd box
No changes other than shooting into a different backstop
Any ideas ??
