thank you , so far this thing has been amazing with factory hornaday black eld-m 123g eld-m handloads factory 123g sst has also shot very well, and im finally dialing in my 90 speer tnt loads to shoot inside of .500 edge to edge groups , from there im going to move onto 107g tmk's or 108g scenars , and theres some guys playing with 130-140g bullets in the grendel which i may also give a try

130g nosler rdf seems like it may be a good choice

when i switch back to my glass scope i think i can shrink those groups just a lil bit more , the digital scopes just dont have the clarity

Ummmmm, groups are measured center to center. Those are 1/4" groups. You measure outside to outside, then subtract one bullet diameter.
