1918 yards shoting Yes i said 1918 yards

308nate, grit and myself went shooting last week. the famous 308nate was shooting his 7mm-300wsm shooting 180 bergers, grit shot his 300 rum with 210 bergers, mine was my 7mmwsm shooting 180 bergers. the targer was a steel plate roughly 18x24(i think). we set the target and had to drive almost 3 miles to get to our shooting position.




here is pictures of us shooting
308nate

grit

myself

the conditions that we were shooting in were 1918 yards with 5-9.9mph wind.

the results we actually hit it. i was the only one suprised. the other guys are seasoned pros this was my longest shot ever. great shooting nate and grit and thanks for letting me join in on your fun.


im sure that i missed alot of the story but at work and thought you guys would want to check this stuff out.

Here are some more pictures of the shoot. when you are looking at the rock that looks like a triangle you have to move up 1/3 of the picture and jsut to the left. the second opening in the snow. you will see our target. this was taken through the leica spotting scope. at the end of the day we let that triangle rock have some berger Lead.

Great shooting! What did you range the target with?

Thanks!

Awesome! I wish I had a place like that to shoot. What was the range to the triangle rock? How many shots did it take to get your target dialed in?

yeah.....nice shooting mat.
