Re: ***PICS ADDED 1000 YARD COLD BORE SHOT (This Saturday)****

I said I would show the results when I got back so here it is.
Let me know what you think (good or bad) .
Note : I cleaned my barrel then I shot one fowler shot but not at the target . Then a few minutes later I sent one towards the target . I wanted one in the orange but you will see where it landed . I think it would have still been in the kill zone but I want to get much better . I mis judged the wind . I dialed .75 MOA right windage

I also decided to shoot a 3 shot group .

After it was all done at the 1010 yard mark . we set up at 200 yards to shoot my father in laws 7mm . You will see his 3 shot group factory barrel with my hand loads.
there is one shot in the sticker from my 300 rum it is just a touch to the right so I oved it .25 MOA to the left.( I believe this has affected my shots at further distances .

Bonus pic of my target behind the tried and trusted GRIZZ for height comparison.

That's outstanding! Now just analyze it for hours like I do and figure out what it's going to take to get them on target. Make sure whatever program your using is accounting for spin drift and corriollis effect. If it's not then I'd bet that is the problem right there. Otherwise it's just adjusting your wind call a bit. Great job man!

Was the wind FROM 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock?

I always start at 1060 milk jug, gong at 1100, milk jug at 1140 and anything else as a bonus that my friend Loosesniper has set up but the first 3 are always there. We shoot slight up hill so its easy to spot your shot. I take every shot as if i was bearing down on an elk for real. Most of the time i miss but always like to keep my misses close. Today i never hit a thing but i would of killed around 12 elk and almost as many deer. When you shoot consistant maybe say under jug to throw dirt on it thats a kill to me. A clorax bottle or milk jug sure isnt that big of target at 1k and over.

3 o' clock to 6 o' clock I think I over read the wind .

I need to fine tune my N F software a bit .

I have a place that I can go and shoot 3,4,5,6,7, hundred yards then match that with what I have already and it should put me on real close.

Mike33 , I think I will try and hang a milk jug or 2 up@ 1010 and see if I can get lucky

I ran the #'s for my load at 1010yds. and if I were not accounting for spin drift and corriollis effect I would impact 8.9" to the right of my POA. That's about exactly where you were hitting so you should double check that.
