Re: Success!

Thanks guys!
Fifty Driver, I have plans for that 270 WSM you built as well.
Last year's long shot was a 592 yard marmot with it. I'm hoping next weekend to make that 800 yards. I'll be very happy with an 8 lb scoped elk rifle that can double as a light weight walking varmint rifle... wait, I think I have that wrong. I have a light weight walking varmint rifle that doubles for elk.
There, that's better. (insert grin)

Brad, great shooting. Glad you got past your goal. Love it when a plan comes together.

Awesome. I used to own 7mm Rem Mag.

I wonder if 180 VLD blew up the marmont. It looked intact?

Re: Success!

Thank god for the yellow bellies. There ain't much funner things to do than to marmot hunt. Too late in the year here in Idaho but spring is right around the corner........

Re: Success!

No Fear, the bullet at that range did not blow apart, but judging from the hole it did mushroom nicely. It certainly didn't pencil through. Ol' whistle pig only made it a few feet from his rock.

mtnwrunner, at the elevations I'm usually shooting at, 12000' +, there is usually only a few weeks of shooting before it begins freezing hard enough that they just don't come out to sun on the rocks. I have another place an hour above my house where I am shooting at around 10000', but I can't find the distances. About 800 seems to be all the further I can get there, so I use the elk rifle.
