So went to my parents place the other day for some range time while I'm on call and figured I'd double check my dope. My chronograph was acting goofy last time I tried using it so I just sat a target out at 359 yards. Longest I can get without moving a bunch of old equipment. Shot this 5 shot group and this is what my strelok was telling me to set velocity to. Originally dialed 1.9 I was using fgmm 175 data since my load is close to that. My load is 41.5 of imr4064 under a 175smk. This seems weird that I would need that high velocity for truing.

on another note if any of y'all shoot 308 try the federal 185 berger load wow

Maybe I’m missing something but it seems your over complicating this. Especially for a 359 yard shot. 
 

Velocity truing/validation is kinda pointless to me. Never have seen the purpose. Velocity is what velocity and even moreso what the barrel likes. I really don’t care what a program says when I can see results with my own eyes.

If I understand you, and I just woke up so it's a good chance I am completely off the mark, it's like Etho says. It is what it is. When I'm getting dope, I avg out 10-20 shots and use that. I'll do it on different days weather wise and keep the log in my range bag, along with dope cards.
