Loaded up 15 rounds with the new 180 ELD-m in my 28 Nolser last weekend.
Got home in time to run out and give them a run out to 650 yards.
I shot one at 100 just to see if POI was close to the 195 Berger I was sighted in with. Elevation was perfect and windage was slightly left of center so that's close enough to accomplish my goal.
Next I shot a group at 350 on paper and they shot into basically a 1 inch group.
I then shot 3 at 600 dialing based of the G7 BC Hornady published first shot went low came up .1 Mil and next was dead center.
Then things got interesting. Next shot nada.... except I saw dust blowing to the right about 300 yards down range? There is a crown in the ground at about that 300-350 but I found it hard to believe that the arc of the bullet wouldn't have easily cleared that even if I shot way low. I thought maybe I just missed the plate due to a wind gust.
So now I go to 650 first shot was .2 Mil low and so I let the barrel cool then fire again this time I see the dust again in the scope and no bullet impact
So now I pull out a 195 Berger smack the bullseye first shot at 650.... this indicated to me the wind did not blow me off those two shots that vanished. I have never had a bullet disintegrate in flight but now I am thinking that is what happened.
Velocity was averaging around 3265fps
