Pushing it out, 1930 yards!

So after initial success at 1030 and 1435 my hunting buddy and I wanted to push it to a mile and see what the rifle and shooter could do. We don't have the equipment to do it accurately, we had to range three times to get close and took wind reading between 12mph and 22mph at target and mid way.

We punched all data into Shooter and set the first one to a sighter target but thinking it was 1980 yards it went over with no feed back, had my buddy hold low and sent a second one and we got feed back and made a correction with put us at 1930 yards with a 17 mph wind. We took two more sighters, one just of each side of the gong with good elevation. I personally didn't think we would be close with what we were working with but by this time getting on paper looked good.
He sent three shots at the target, looked good so we had a drive to the target
I know it's small start but we're feeling good, specially after confirming range with google earth! Now to work on cold bore hits

BnG, I think the next test shold be to send some into a pack. Go for the big dog in the middle and dont stop sending them till you have a pile of stinking furr.

Great shooting boys!! Darn nice rifle too.
