hit a mile

I finally got a chance to hit a mile with my 338 lapua. It took 3 shots to get on then I had 9 hits. I had to hang it it up when I got a stuck case.

I'm with Mike, what are your rifles specs and target size. Good shooting nonetheless. Wish I had somehwere I could shoot a mile with my .338 lapua furthest range around is 1,000 yards.

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.

Re: hit a mile

my rifle is a savage 110 hs with a vortex viper scope. I was shooting a 2'x2' steel plate no pics of the plate though. I am using lapua brass with 300 grain bergers and have noticed that it starts to get sticky when it starts to get hot. I should have let it cool more but was having so much fun. I am considering getting a 30" broughton 5c barrel here pretty soon

Re: hit a mile

I have the same set up. Savage 110 Fcp in .338 lapua I changed my stock to a manners t5 and have a vortex viper pst ffp 6-24x50 on it as well. My gun wouldn't shoot the bergers at all. The SMK's are what it likes combined with 92.0 grains of h1000 and it is a deadl combo.

I have been thinking about swapping sticks as well but with a blank costing 350 ish and another 250-300 in gunsmith work it is a hair pricey for a gun that already shoots. I was thinking 30-32" bartlein 1-9.3 twist.

Keep me posted if you swap barrels. Would like to hear what that barrel will do for you.

I am also considering putting a different tube on our 338 Lapua, thinking a shilen select match with the ratchet rifling and a CSR brake.
