Found a Great Extreme Long Range Shooting Spot

Found an awesome spot to shoot ELR out to 1950 yards according to google earth, with many small banks with dirt clumps and rocks on them, would be perfect spot to set up some steel. It is also in an area where we have seen many mule deer and is rich in coyotes so we will keep an eye out when sending some copper.
Now we just need a rangefinder capable of ranging a coyote at 1500 yards.

There are some rolling hills so it should make judging the wind tricky and create some updrafts just to screw with me . I need the practice anyway.

Hopefully we will be able to make it out there next weekend and get some practice in before we leave for my late season cow elk hunt in Montrose Colorado with Camp David Outfitting (great outfitter and extremely kind IMHO).

If anyone is passing through the area and would like to do some shooting let me know and if the date and time work out we could show you the area and do some shooting.

Re: Found a Great Extreme Long Range Shooting Spot

It is about 45 minutes from my house but it is near where we go pheasant hunting alot so...... The 280 grain LRX goes subsonic at 1640 yards so at 1900 we will see how they do subsonic, at 1900 yards i need 94.7 MOA up from the 338 Lapua but we only have about 65 MOA in the scope so we will have to dial 60 MOA and hold (if my calculations are right) 10 Mils in the tmr leupold scope.

Re: Found a Great Extreme Long Range Shooting Spot

On sunday afternoon we went out there to confirm on some closer shots (around 800 yards) with google earth and sure enough just because we dont have the 338 Lapua we see a coyote walking around at 750 yards . Allwell, but you can sure bet we wont be without that gun when hunting again.
