Re: 3650 yards target nailed !!!

Just don't tell the 7mm guys they can't shoot 2 miles and out pound the 375 CT or all hell will break loose

Sorry, just couldn't resist

I am about 80% confident that not even one of my full tilt XHS in 338 AM could reach out to 2 miles with consistency as I would define it anyway. May have to start looking for a place to test this however.

You can tell yourself you can do ANYTHING in this old world, only those that have true confidence actually try and are alright to fail. More importantly, being able to admit when we reach our limits is just as important as pushing our limits.

Kirby,

You can use mine with 300gr sorted Bergers if you want. I have everything needed except the dies and brass...of course still waiting on the gun. I'm assuming it's about complete.

Only Caveats, I have to be there and 3K max. I'm not interested in 2 mile shots. I've been there and done that and beyond enough to know that's not what I'm looking for or need to experience.

Re: 3650 yards target nailed !!!

It has been my experience that certain bullets will hold precision (grouping) at sub sonic velocities better than others. It is not necessarily the one with the higher BC. So, if it were my goal to shoot 2 miles with precision, I would go at it with this in mind. I also haven't witnessed great precision from any bullet turned in a lathe. If you want it to group at 2 miles, it first has to group at 1 mile. As far as cheytac based cases are concerned, are they even capable of1/4 moa at any range?

I am hoping to have bullets in the air out of your rifle this week. So we will see what happens and maybe we can set something up to reach out 3K. The old place I tested several years ago is no longer available to me so would need to find a new spot.
