Looks like a great day Grit. I need t get out and do some more long range shooting, and reading this is a motivator. I was surprised the 338 had a 12 twist. I guess it was with 250's in mind?

I also was currious what RF you have?

Thanks for the read.

Jeff

My client had a Vectronix PLRF-10 but forgot to bring it with him so we used the Swaro and just ranged twice. Once to 900 then drove to that spot then ranged 1100 to the rock we wanted to shoot at. It really was an ideal spot to shoot as far as the eye could see..

The Sako's come with the 12 twist in the Lapua just for that reason, to shoot the 250's.

You need a half track to haul it around and a wallet labeled 'Diebold' for the gun and ammo.

I'm not poor by any means and it's fun to read about, but I'll pass.

I was also curious as to the range finders y'all were using. I've out grown my swaro's and am saving for a Vectronix Terrapin. Unless I descover something better in the mean time.

In reading about the Thor--you should have been able to hear my drool hitting the floor! I want my (still unfinished) Edge to weigh thirty pounds. That's a real long shooter for sure.

I favor a 12-13 lb rifle and an efficient cartridge, myself. I must say, I sure enjoyed shooting the big rig! Made me cringe to figure the cost of the mornings ammo.

I'm daydreaming about a new Vectronix myself. Gonna be a game changer! A Swaro and a GPS are doing the job for now...
