(PREFACE: All shots were @ 200 yards. The scope is a fixed power 24x44 BSA Platinum Target scope.)
 I got rained out this morning but I got enough information compiled using the 168grn Sierra TMK's. My first ten shot group @ 200 yards was done from the bench using a Caldwell tripod and rear sandbag. The group measured 1.452" 
The next ten shots were done @ 200 yards standing with sling. That grouped measured 2.350" I put ten more down range still in the standing position and the group opened up a bit and measured in at 2.773". I took the only NRA Official target I had available, the SR-1, stuck a red dot over the X, walked it out to the 200 yard mark, walked back, got back into the standing position, and started firing. That group was not officially measured but you can see from the target that all ten shots stayed within the ten ring.
These particular rounds had a C.O.L. of 2.830", loaded with 39.5grns of VihtaVuori N540, and primed with GM215M Federal primers. The C.O.L. was set to produce reliable feeding from the magazine...

Why are you bumping after such a short time interval?

World class shooting right there.
My buddy nearby who was an exhibition shooter at Remington Farms couldn't best that I'm not sure from standing.
Excellent shooting, you should start competing, or a marksmanship school.

My daughter taped a 308 cartridge to my target and then said that she would buy lunch if I could hit it with one shot using my 243W.
I ordered a Lucky Boy 1/2lb International, Hot Dog,Fries and a Coke...

Last fall I took a Hog sniper deer hunting.
He deployed numerous times.
Because it was archery season, I set him in a stand and gave rudimentary tips for a crossbow just prior to the hunt.

I told him to wait for a buck for which he did.
At any rate, he arrowed one which myself and wife were able to observe from across the field.
When we retrieved the downed deer he told me that was the hardest shot he ever made.
And I shoot a thousand rounds of 300 win mag in very short intervals at Quantico regularly.
Anybody can make a lucky shot every once in a while.
Thank you he said, its why I do what I do and now I know why.

I was set to be shipped out to parts unknown in the middle east until the Base Commander at Ft. Dodge found a glitch in my original recruitment forms. Long story short,  they choppered me back to my house in Bridgwater that sat in front of 800 acres of farmland. 18 weeks of specialized and intensive training down the sh*tter because of someone else's mistake. He was stripped of his rank from Lt. to Corporal...

Choppering you back has got to be the worst case of FUBAR I have heard to date.

Shooting like that definitely is worth a bump and assuredly more than one lunch - and bragging rights!
