Default interesting day on the range

I've been trying to dial in my 7Mag at 250 yards and tried 3 bullets today. The 140gr Sierra Pro Hunter, the 140gr Game King and the 160gr Game King. All 100 yard groups were within 1.25 the 160gr Game King at .8.

At 250 things got interesting. The 140 gr Pro hunters were at 4 inches while the Game Kings were at 5 inches! The 160gr Game Kings stole the show at 2.2 inches. Unfortunately, I can only get around 3000'/sec with them which puts the 400 yard shot 15 inches low zeroed at 250. It was a tricky wind today and I'm not sure what to make of this mess. Looks like it's back to the Accubonds. Regards, Rick.
