I got the chance to drive farther east in NC yesterday to meet up with some guys to shoot. To start off, the wind was terrible, sustained at 8-10 with gusts to 25+ with a cold front moving through and intermittent drizzle, not a great day to be attempting extreme range with a new rifle. In NC we are used to the calm winds so I already knew this was going to be a challenge but we set steel up from 500 yards out to 1760. I fired 3 fouling rounds out of my 338 Allen mag at 1200 yards into 1/2" mild steel (bad for the steel) and adjusted my scope accordingly. I then sat the gun down and we shot 260s and 308s for 3 hours. I then picked the 338 back up, dialed in for the 1760 yard plate and let it rip. First shot connected with 11 MOA wind hold. Sent 1 more round that went 2" off the right sides striking the post holding the target. Those unpredictable gusts play havoc on a 2.5 second flight time. When you think you are shooting in a lull, as soon as you touch the trigger and send it, your hat gets blown off, great NC weather in March. All in all, a fun day, really got to see how the 260s handled the wind compared to a bunch of 308s out to 1200. I don't have a picture of the 1760 target because we were getting soaked but here is the area we were shooting and the 1200 target. Shooting out of the back of the truck to get high enough to see the targets is quite cramped and not ideal, but adds a little to the challenge. Yes, I know someone will point out the scope is too high, I was sent the wrong rings and waiting on the new ones.
