Title: Worked up the 22/250 and 60 gr partitions
Post by: D45/70 on July 31, 2013, 06:03:00 PM
Got my Lope tag, thought I'd do the dirty work today No wind but the heat shimmer sucked, at 100 yards I was lucky to see the target.
 I'm going to use a Nosler partition 60 gr with 32.1 gr Varget , I tested them at 3385 fps. The grouped well at that speed. I wanted to sight them in like I'd be hunting so I left the bench and bag at home. Just the stony point shooting sticks and my Coyote pad as a seat. I ran a fast 100 target and got it about right then Settled in for a group. THE HEAT SHIMER was worse at 100 yards for what ever reason but It turned out ok  think.

 then for a 200 yard group off sticks and full power ( 12 ) on the Redfield scope.
 The targets have 1/2" hash marks. I'm thinking if I do my part the 250 will do hers... [=D>]
