338 lm @ 1830

I went out on Black Friday to shoot a group of five a little over a mile. Went up to the target to measure a 3 shot group my brother shot with my rifle about 3 months ago, this was his second time shooting this rifle 8" 3 shot group at 1780.

Painted target went and ranged 1830 got set up first 2shots are what you see on the target ...1/4 inch elevation at that range is sweet.. My 3 4 5 shot were off target , I'm like what the heck.... I started to pack rifle up to drive up to target and I heard a clicking noise...the base came loose that explained my 3 4 5 shots...so no it's time for some blue loctite.

Will get out again for a 5 and 10 shot groups sometime in january.

Rifle is a custom 338 lapua

    Great shooting. So frustrating when something comes loose. It is nice that you noticed it. Usually with me it will shoot good one day then not the next and I just think it is me until it finally gets loose enough to be bad most of the time. Can't tell you how many shots have been wasted due to something getting loose.

    Nice! I love the sound of hitting steel at a mile.
