Default Range Report - 7x300 Weatherby - 5-28-15

And finally, my 'baby'. The rifle that has NEVER let me down. I shoot one bullet from this rifle - the Speer 115-grain HP. It has ALWAYS shot 'like a laser'. The box of ammo I am shooting from is the last of a box loaded in the late '80s. It's AT LEAST 26 years old. Including today, I've shot this rifle twice in the last 25+ years. There's no need. It shoots right where I point it. EVERY TIME.

Here's the target at 100 yd.


That's three holes. The first shot from the 'cold' barrel is half a caliber off of point of aim. The other hole is the second and third shots. The MVs are 3462, 3467, 3465, average 3465 and a max spread of FIVE feet per second. Oh yeah, the only scope this rifle has ever had on it is a crappy Tasco.

See here http://thehunterslife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16867 for "the rest of the story".
