Today I got a report on the new .408 Cheyenne round and rifle. The latest tests were for the Canadian military. In the tests they were getting MOA accuracy at 3,000 yards, repeatedly with the 400+ grain bullet. The 300+ grain loading shows only 27" of drop at 1,000 yards which means that a sniper would not to adjust his sight settings under 1,000 yards just aim lower.

At 7 degrees of elevation the round has a range of over 4,000 yards. Again with the 400+ grain bullet.

George, what I understand, from second hand information, it was a 1000 yard zero. I thought I was told 27" of drop but I could have heard wrong or not understood what I was told. Hell, I'm not a long range rifle shooter. I could not afford a .408 Cheyenne Tactical rifle at a 5 figure cost any way. The military is looking at them however. From Mountain A to Mountain B.
