Good work. I thought I heard you mention that you were having trouble seeing the bullet impacts from recoil movement on the video. That surprises me as well as my XHS in my 375 AM driving the 350 gr SMK @ 3300 fps are easy to watch bullet impact at ranges over 500 yards.
Perhaps my XHS is a heavier rifle. The large PK muzzle brake may have something to do with that as well.
Anyway, great shooting. Odd to watch a video of shooting in the mountains when the impact dust cloud just hangs there for several seconds. Nice to get a morning like that to shoot in but can be a pain with mirage with very light winds at times.
Good shooting, good video, good report, thanks.
I was surprised as well with the height difference & was looking above the target for the strike not way below it, took me a while to come to grips with what my spotter was telling me.
The main problems I had were heat from the barrel coupled with a crap shooting position, 16 degrees up with the tall harris into soft dirt is a little wiggly....
A couple of times I lost the sight picture, also the sight picture was blurry with barrel mirage a lot of the time.
The rig weighs 21lbs all up so not really a heavy weight by American standards
There is a big difference in recoil between a 350 at 3300 & a 425 at 3130.
The extra gas volume & velocity coupled with the lighter weight projectile make the brakes job a lot easier.
I have some comparitive tests to do with some of the bigger brakes available, should be interesting, so many projects so little time
