Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM

Thanks for posting, 1.5 MOA is amazing at that distance and velocity
even with no wind. That +P just keeps sounding better and better

Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM

Just out of curiosity how is case life in the +P chambering?

Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM

We have played with long range baro issues and found this to be the best way to work it. Again it is somewhat like the wind, it comes down to your best guess, but is still better than not looking at it at all.

Brass life on the +P is around 6-7 loads.

Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM

Simply amazing Shawn!!! I have just started using the Kestrel/Bulletflight combo myself and am quite impressed! I have only tested out to 800yds. with it so far but it is dead nuts on! The heading input is easy to over look but your right, it makes a difference. I have all your videos and do take an interest in the equipment you use so it's nice to see we are liking the same program. Feel free to include an updated gear list in your next video. Thanks for all you do for the shooting community! I'm not ready for the LRKM yet but it's on the wish list for sure!!!

Some very interesting reasoning on baro pressure how consistant are you finding bullet flight under subsonic with the 300 OTM Berger?
Also how many steps you are finding you need in your BC out to 2751 yards pushing the Berger at 3137fps?

Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM
