I very much dislike this type of thread due to the fact that it brings out a lot of bogus input. Nevertheless, you are quite right Paul. I went over this in the book series.

Put simply, it would break the laws of physics to have a rifle that groups say 1.5" at 100 yards but 1" at 200 yards. Precession cannot be factored into this nonsense. To have groups smaller at 200 yards, the bullets would each have to change direction. This is very basic physics.

I see too much of this pontification among long range shooters, looking for answers (excuses) to inconsistencies in their field work. Yes, you may have smaller groups at 200 yards than 100 yards, but this has nothing to do with the load. It is the shooter that is the problem. Don't be sucked into this myth, it has been bandied about for far too long.
