I have put a weight on the target so it points up and reflects the sky instead of the grass and dirt around the target. That improves visibility a lot more than one would think. Also, I cast a shadow on my sights which does a lot more for visibility than angling the target. If I didn't do those things, with the conditions the way they were, I would have not been able to see that target well enough to be half as consistent.
I can see a 2moa target at whatever distance pretty clear, once it gets smaller it gets pretty fuzzy.
I'll have to try 550 sooner or later, (550 is all I the closer to 500 can get from my bench
before yesterday I didn't think I would ever get 300, I had tried with probably 18 shots on at least 3 different occasions.
