Default Punching paper

Got out yesterday to shoot, a great day, norther in, 20 mph gusting to 35.
Blew my target stand all over the place, had to wedge it in a downed tree top to keep it up.
Tried the 220gr rn gc, Herco, 12gr, 1240fps .
H110, 25gr , 1620fps.

Then 320rfn gc, IMR4198, 35gr, 1580fps.
Rel 7, 45gr, 1740fps.

Then, 405gr rfn gc, Imr 4198, 35 gr 1610fps.

Then, 500gr 3R gc, Imr 4198, 35gr, 1620fps, too much for me!
IMR 4064, 34gr, 1160fps.
H 4895, 39gr, 1430fps.
It seems the 4198 is just a little slow for the 320gr,as I got higher velocities with the same charge with the heavier bullets, I am going to get some A1680 or W680 and see how they do with the 320gr bullet.
I recently did the o ring on the forearm screw stud trick to freefloat the barrel and the groups are better, see attached targets.
