Met up with a friend and we both had been loading new bullets to try while being quarantined. I took 3 rifles my Ruger 77 RSI in 250-3000 Savage,my Savage model 99 in 308 and finally my Mannlicher Schoenauer model 1905 in 9x56 MS. I had loaded Hornady 117 grain round nose for the 250 sav. Fired 2 rounds of the 117 grain spire point boat tails we used last year to check zero. They were touching dead center of bull. Then shot 3 of round nose they were 1\2" lower in a .56" cluster. My buddy says I wouldn't adjust anything. All 5 rounds inside the center 1 inch square of bull. Put that gun away. Next up was the model 99. I had found a box of old stock Hornady 165 grain round nose 308 at the last gun show I attended in Morris Run PA before they started cancelling all events. Buddy said he'll I will tape the back side of these holes and you can use the same target. I fired 3 rounds. We went down to check and they were 1.5 inches below All in a 1.75" group. Adjusted scope ( 3x9 leupold) up1.5" fired 3 more rounds. 2 were in the center of bull didn't see 3 rd round. Buddy walked around. Back of target and stuck a stick thru the hole. It had enlarged one of the 250 holes. I now had 6 rounds from 2 different guns all in the same 1 inch square center bull. My friend said you better stop on the way home and buy a lottery ticket. In 20 years of reloading I have never shot 2 groups like that from 2 different guns. I am going to the round noses to get better performance on game without all the bloodshot meat loss. My buddy has his Remington 722 in 6mms with 90 grain sierras. 3 rounds were 2 inches low with a @2.5 inch group. He checked scope mount screws all tight. I suggested he check the action bedding screw. It was loose. Tightened it up a d fired 3 more rounds. 1 inch high .75" group. I said well I need to try the Mannlicher as I had the rear sight reworked into an express style with a gold inlayed line in center as I was having trouble centering the front sight . First shot in the center of bull. I was a bit too exuberant and the next round was 1 .75 low but on line with first round. 3rd round I pulled the shot 3 inches right. I said one more with set trigger. It was touching first round. My buddy laughs and said well you can't blame the gun. And on that note I quit. It is always gratifying when your reloads perform as well as you had hoped. Those deer are in trouble this year. I can't wait to see how these round noses perform on game.
