Some good info here guys. Thanks to all that added details and data.
Augustus, great shooting. If you are ever out this way I would be honored to take you to some of my spots to burn some powder.
Darryl, good info and I am glad to see you posting. Please post away as I am really interested in hearing more.
I don't have a lot to add. I do quite a bit of rock shooting from 1200 to 2000 yards and sometimes beyond. I am constantly striving for the first round hits. Like Augustus stated those targets we have shot before seem to be easier the next time we shoot them. But a first time target at or past a mile is a hit or miss deal for me so far with the first round. Corrections are usually within 1 moa on most cases but some do go farther off. Darn wind!! Once the correction are on, repeated hits under 1 moa are easy. Also I am engaging targets in conditionsI would never attempt hunting. I will shoot rocks in almost any wind that is there so this will put a damper on thefirst round hits too. I do see improvement with practice and feel my new rifle from Shawn will help too. A mile plus coyote is definatly in my future.
