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

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