1st 1000 yard group

Here is the picture of the first 1000 yard group that I have ever shot from our outing yesterday.

Gun

Remington 700 SPS in 7 RM
ASI Maxi Brake
Harris 6-9 bipod

Ammunition

Winchester cases
WLMR primers
65.5 gr H1000
168 gr VLD seated .01" off the lands
2890 fps

I was pretty happy with this as it was my first group at 1000 yards. It measured 8 inches of vertical and 6.25 inches of horizontal. Still sub MOA, but I'm sure the gun can do better than that. It would have helped to have had a point of aim painted in the middle of the gong. I also did not take into account that I was shooting about 5 degrees uphill, but for my first group at this distance I will take it. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shot hits at that distance make me

Pretty impressive for the first time.

You will shoot much better in time.

Nice shooting, looks like you might have to get thicker steel.
