This is a RUM ladder test from last weekend. Distinct POI shift once it jumped over 3,000fps but that was about the only noticeable reaction

I did the same last weekend and ended up getting the 7 mag 100% dialed. Of 6 loads they started wide, tightened up to this and then began opening up again. I reloaded some more fine tunes loads on either side of the good group to make sure it's got some stability around it.

Just trying to get to this with the other one. I'll keep at it.

I donít shoot under 300 yards.  A good load at 100 just doesnít tell me much other than the rifle has potential.   Positive compensation (good) looks worse at 100 yards and the long heavies may not be stabilized.

If the bullets arenít stabile at 100 yards they wonít be stabile any further.

It is impossible for a group of bullets to consistently converge as distance increases.

So maybe group the heavy rounds for that gun at 220? Fyi, that's the max we can run em at my range.

Thereís this little thing called physics...

Can you explain how your gun shoots better at 200 than 100 all the time?

Numerous guys, and smiths have experienced the same thing. I wonít argue with you, as it appears with the whitetail conversation, is what you wanna do...

Iím not calling you a liar. If in fact that is the case it is caused by something with the shooter or optic. Bullets donít have a brain to know where to go back to to be on target after firing. Once that bullet leaves the barrel it is set in that direction, save for external forces (wind, gravity, etc).  it canít miraculously move toward the bullseye unless the wind happens to push it there or gravity takes it there.
 
I can say that sometimes I shoot better groups on a lower magnification setting than I do at higher magnification. Itís not that the gun shoots better at lower magnification, but more likely that I just aim better at lower magnification.
