Re: 1 mile shot

Boyd, I am almost in tears! I got my starter rig! Its a win m70 in 300wsm. I know, I know a winchester! But I love them and I got a steal at auction $400 new in box! Now I'm onto saving for a laminated stock like the ones I've seen on some of your guns. Any place you know of have good prices for them? I was thinking of getting the stock I want with the channel for heavy barrel. Just mount and shoot with this barrle for now! Then get the heaver barrel later and swop out? This thing needs trigger help I bet the beast is 8lbs! I'll be at Harrisburg the first Monday hope to see ya there! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] P.S. You video that shot and I'll buy ya that drink DEAL!

Re: 1 mile shot

Boyd, where did you pick up your heavy laminated stocks at. Any place around here? I would like to look into getting one and then getting the action bedded in it. I guess I'll have the action trued and the trigger work down. Other than that I will just wait on the other barrle which might be awhile. I shouldn't need a brake. I shoot my father-in-laws 300 win alot no problems. Nice steady push with that. After I gett my Lupy 3x9 tactical on and a nice recoil pad I'll see what she can do. Factory pad is like a "SOLID" piece of rubber! One thought on brakes, you use them on your heavy 300wsm? With these heavy lam. stocks and a heavy barrle this should kick less than 308? Well getting late. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 1 mile shot

Hi Gents,
In .338 Dia. are there any thoughts that a VLD style 275-285 gr, bullet being driven at a higher speed be better than a say 300 or even a 320-330 gr VLD. Are there any bullets like this in production? I live where the wind blows quite a bit, so wind drift is somthing we have to watch close. Also are any of you using the VihtaVuori 24N41 in the 338/416 Rigby Imp? Thanks,

Re: 1 mile shot

Another thought on the 1-mile shot, Dave Lauck of D & L Sports was telling me that with the 300 RUM in his MR30 rifle that they were getting regular hits on a 16" (square I think) gong at a mile and had started a club of shooters who hit it.

Hey Guys have we forgotten what Hathcock did in S.E.Asia with 60s' vintage stuff. And he was playing for keeps at that range with a 70 Win in the unfamilar 30-06.
