Just for everyones information. I had the opportunity to test my rifle and load at 300 and 500 yards. The Boone and Crockett reticle's aiming points for these distances were dead on. I was shooting a six inch steel target. I was using Remington 180gr pointed soft point core lock. Caliber is 300 win-mag. Scope is Leupold VXIII, 4.5~14 x 40mm. I was very pleased with the accuracy of the B&C reticle.
