It's usually easier to blame the rifle rather than the rifleman.  I guess I don't have that luxury this year.
This was shot out of my T/C Contender Carbine in 7mmTCU with a stock 21" barrel at 100 yards.  The load is 25.5 grs. of IMR-4985 under a Hornady 139 gr. SPBT.  This point of impact is 2" high at 100 yds which is where I sight in my hunting guns.  I'll have to run a point blank range test on it at some point.  This is when I wish I owned a chronograph.

Very good 788. It looks like you're ready. 

When do you get to go hunting?

Wing, My season starts November 1.  I have the benefit of access to a defunct tree farm and the surrounding woods owned by my brother so I get to hunt two weeks before the general private lands and state seasons open up.  you?  788
