6.5x284 1500 Yard group

This group was shot by Jason Baney with Eurooptic on Thursday 5/8/14 at ExtremeOutdoorLimits shooting school in Madrus, Oregon. Rifle is mine all I need to do is be as good a shot as Jason.

I don't know how to comment on this. WOW seems very inadequate. I have never ever, had a rifle or the ability or the eyesight to duplicate something like that. Your rifle and your friend have set the bar very high.

Incredible shooting and a beautiful rifle!

Thanks! Jason is a Bench rest shooter and very accomplished at it. We went to 1800 yards but the energy was gone and had hits but not consistent. We never reached the 2000 yard target energy was gone.

That is a very sharp looking rifle, well done my friend. Hats of to your buddy for some incredible shooting... I am not worthy!

Just out of curiosity : what powder, bullet, primer, velocity are you using out of that rifle. Very impressive by the way.
