Re: hit a mile
Stuck case makes me believe a savage rifle with Hornady brass. I keep hearing more and more about that. 9 consecutive hits at a mile is no joke though great shooting.
"Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V
