Just to add to the squabble. There are many rifles in 308 that will shoot the same projectiles faster with less recoil than the 30-06🤔 short fat columns work better than long ones sometimes. Also chambers and barrels are funny creatures. I can duplicate everything my 257 Weatherby does with my 25-284 with 100 grain bullets.

200 yards, 2/10th ladder, long ways to go. Nothing yet except a sore shoulder but man what a beautiful day

Rl 25 . Hard to find even that. But hornady shows it as a good fit for the 208ís

My son showed up with his girlfriend and started plinking a 6 inch gong at the 200 meter, open sights, standing freehand with his 22 lr. He was on the rifle team and placed third in the state his last year. Made me want to put my gun away lol

How many rounds do you have down the barrel?
Seems like you have a lot of  variation in your group sizes for only a 2/10 difference

Roughly two boxes of 180ís. A good portion of the variations is probably me. Iím struggling a bit with the recoil. Even the beginning loads and the muzzle brake with the heavier bullets have left a dandy bruise. Plus Iíve been shooting a lot of different rifles lately. Was actually hoping for some good groups early after about the 5 round lol 😂

Plus itís 200 not 100 yards so it looks a little worse than it is but it helps me see the spread better
