LRKM to almost 3K

Stretched my LRKM is 338 Terminator +P out a little today. Condition were less than ideal with a gusting 7:00 wind from 8 to 12 MPH. and pretty bad mirage. But I managed to get 3 out of 4 into a hair over 1 moa at 2971 yards. Took 119 moa. Impact velocity was sub-sonic at 1025 fps, impact energy was 700 lbs, and flight time was 5.217 seconds. It was an "on time departure"

Pretty happy really. first round was exactly 1 moa low, dialed up and it responded accordingly. It is tough to spot hits at that distance, especially if you are counting "one thousand one, one thousand two........." But believe it or not I could see chunks falling off the face of the cliff.

Re: LRKM to almost 3K

Congrats, sounds like that LRKM is treating you nicely. I am in the market for one just cant decide between the 338 Edge +P or that awesome rig of yours the 338 Terminator +P. I imagine they are both extreamly accurate I havent heard anything else coming out of those DE rifles. Anyway nice shooting and congrats is that the first time you have shot that far?

Thanks! Actually it is. I have done quite a bit in the 2500 range but I have been looking hard for the place to get 3K where my RF will still report. Now that I found it I will be going to 3K soon by simply backing up a bit. Might even try to get some video of that if time permits.

2.43 Seconds lag time. Wind drift 43 inches per MPH full value cross wind. Few have had the pleasure to experience just how difficult this is.....Enjoy and nice shooting. 1 MOA with that lag time is difficult.
