I would just like to say that, my goal is not to aim and hit a specific target, I only want to see if the bullets will group at all, at that distance.
When I first started shooting my 338LM, I said that my goal was to shoot groups at 2000 meters, but I was told that it would be almost impossible.
Last fall I shot a 5 shot group at 2004 meters, measuring a bit over 1.6 moa, which I was very pleased with. When someone tells me it can't be done, I try to prove them wrong
So far, I have been right.
Yes, the drop is tremendous at 3200 yards, but the speed, is not much slower, than at 2700 yards. Once the bullet is subsonic, it loses very little speed. And I also see that, nomatter how high the MV is, the speed at 3200 yards is almost the same. The drop is the only big difference.
I have a new 338 LM coming, with gain twist, to shoot some real long bullets with BC up to 1. Then we'll se how far I can shoot. The new Hensholdt 3.5-26x56 has 40 MILS elevation, and will be a good scope for shooting ELR.
By the way, I was in your "backyard" hunting and shooting in January, Shawn. I was in Idaho and visited a friend, Bryce Wells. His parents live close to you, I was told. If I had better time, I would have visited you also, if possible. Maybe next time
