Some shots at 1000 and 1300

Went out today to rezero my 338 Lapua because for some reason it was off zero a little bit. Then I couldn't find my allen wrench to undo the zero stop on my night force. Finally got that squared away but it didn't leave me much time to shoot at distance. I went back to 1000 and got all set up and shot 4 shots. The wind was blowing 5.5 mph from my 2 o'clock. The two at the top right are my first two shots and either the wind got stronger or I did something because the other two shots at 1000 went into that cluster of hits on the left side of the 10" orange circle. I went back to 1300 yards and shot two shots and those are the other two shots in the cluster on the left side. 4 for 4 inside a 10" circle at 1000 yards and 2 for 2 inside that same circle at 1300 yards will put a smile on my face any day! Sure hope I draw and elk tag this year!

    I have been amazed with this rifle. It has shot some awesome 4 shot groups at 1300 yds. I will keep my shots on game at 1100 and under but I have been shooting farther out. It is definitely good practice.
