Shooting 2060 Yards! 1.17 Miles 338 Lapua

Hey Guys! A couple days ago I went out and did some of my best shooting ever, at 2060 yards! I was shooting my savage 110 BA chambered in 338 Lapua with 300gr Berger OTM's at a steel torso target. Out of a total of 18 rounds fired I landed 4 solid hits. I probably would have done better but I had no idea I was hitting the target so a few times I dialed off after hitting. Time to get a better spotting scope now! Made a short video of the shoot, hope you enjoy!

That was some great shooting
It is hard to see impact at those ranges, you can see from your video that there is not alot of dust coming off the ground whenh you have a near miss.

There is a long range shooting event next weekend here in Norway, and we have a 20"x20" steel plate at 2061 yards. I will make a video from when we are shooting at it. I will use a 300 win mag, shooting the 230 grs Bergers.

Post more videos, I like them

Thanks! I'd love to see the video you make! Nothing gets my blood going like long range shooting! Those Bergers are a good choice, they seem to fly really well at long ranges.

It's a 720p small hand held camera I picked up on ebay for $10. It has a cracked lcd screen but it shows enough to let me position the camera where I need to. I just push record and it gives me just enough time to get back and shoot the shots. Also have another cam for the gun shooting that is 720p, almost the same type as the target cam.
