Went to the range again

Went to the range again Friday, this time shot at 200 yds.  Again, they shot consistent groups of 2" - 2.25".  Reason I say between 2 & 2.25" is that the table I was shooting off of wasn't the most stable.  On a rock solid table with my bench rest, I think it would shoot tighter groups.  But, I have no doubt the Barnes TSX will knock down any Elk as long as I do my part.  3 weeks 'til the first hunt, will post pic's if I am successful.

That is shooting very well. A

That is shooting very well. A two inch group at 200 yards is what we are all looking for in our handloads. I have no doubt as well that your load will do the trick as long as you do not go looking for the longest shot you can find yourself. Good luck to you on your hunt and yes... definitely keep us posted. I can tell you that taking an animal with loads that you developed is really cool. I did it for the first time this year after creating a load for my .270 winchester and used it on pronghorn. I hope you get yourself an elk with the new load!

1 MOA is good for 200 yards. 

1 MOA is good for 200 yards.  I would recommend to get a rock solid bench rest if your building a load just to remove one variable otherwise you may think lack of accuracy is related to the load while it is the bench.
