In my post of June 11, I told you about shooting my Savage .25/06 at 350 yards, and how the heavier, 115-grain bullets I used shot flatter than the faster 85-grainers. Well, yeah, up to 350 yards. Last week I got to shoot at 400, 500, and 600, in West Virginia, courtesy of Melvin Forbes of New Ultra Light Arms. And things went according to script until I got to 600 where the 85-grain bullets printed 8 inches above the 115s, which suddenly got tired and took a rest. My extensive training in exterior ballistics led me to conclude WTF? This wretched episode only serves to underline the fact that if you don't actually shoot at long range, and rely instead on ballistics tables and blind faith, get used to missing.
