???

Do you think the difference that we're seeing between the two is due to the velocity difference? I'm running them at avg 2940. Now like I said I didn't run the numbers yet but I'll let you know.

A 7" group at 834 yards is nothing to sneeze at. That's good shooting from a bipod. Any deer is definitely in trouble.

The bunch of us should get together sometime next year, summer for ground hogs or deer in the fall or something. What do you think?

not sure why big, near as I can tell I've got all my other dope right, but for some reason to match my trajectory I always have to raise the BC, with the exception of the lapua 139 scenars, they were dead nuts using the published BC of .615. even my 7mm has to run a BC of .65 with the 160 accubonds that have a published BC of .531 but I am running it 3575 fps..
shooting with you guys would be a blast, but don't expect much from me, seems I struggle alot. if things work out maybe we can plan a trip for next year.

I noticed a big difference in the 104 amax published bc to what I was seeing. I was seeing a drop that showed a bc of about .6 not .545 as they had it listed.
