If you ever doubt the accuracy of the .224 Nosler 52gr BTHP SHOTS, this should go some way in giving some serious comfort. While I am getting consistent groupings of ± 20 to 25mm at 100m (a tad under MOA) from my Bruno .223rem, one of my fellow Bushveld Conservation Bureau ( BCB) members, Peter S (otherwise known as “Proof-Load Pete”) produced this ± 7mm, 7 shot grouping at 100m.
I am humbled.
Groups measured as follows: outer edges less calibre (ie. center-2-center of furthest rounds)
