    Great shooting Jeff

    It is very strange with such long flight times.

    The spotter is sitting there thinking "where did that go ???" then smack, "Ohh there it is "

    As you say one thousand & one, one thousand & two......

    After shooting plenty of rounds with 4-5 second flight times, I grabbed my 300 Blackout & had a go at 377 or so, I can still remember thinking, on seeing the impact, "Man that got there fast"

    I hear ya Greg. I have a 17 fireball that has reached 4100 fps on a good day. Shooting steel at 300 yards with it is almost instantaneous and you never loose sight picture.

    Great shooting Jeff!! I'm looking forward to the distance of your elk this year.

    Went out with the 308 Saturday and threw some lead. Early morning shot very well at 800 yards was shooting a rock with face of roughly 7" . Shot three rounds with all three hits with no wind at 36*. Mid afternoon went back to do it again with a 5-7mph 3 o'clock wind with 2 of 5 shots being hits and the other three being roughly 6" left of my rock. 168gr pills just don't handle the wind like the 300s. Lol

    Some great shooting in tricky wind by the sounds, pity there no video as we all could be part of your days shooting.

    That is really cool, Jeff. Yep, send some video this way. That'd be great to see.
