Damn fine shooting! I wish I had a place I could play at 1000yds but gotta go west a ways before I find that kind of open ground.

It is nice to be able to drive a mile from my house and be able to shoot further than any centerfire rifle is capable of shooting. The only bad part is that there is nobody near me who shoots long range, so I am having to learn as I go and from this site.

No doubt! I was surprised that the bullet still had enough umph to go through a 3/8's thick manhole cover, especially since I am not really pushing those 168 gr VLD's hard at all.

Alot of people underestimate the magnum 7 calibers for long range. Pokin holes in 3/8" steel plate at 1K means it should definitely go through an elk no problem. Alot of people don't realize how much force it takes to push a thin copper jacketed chunk of lead through solid hot-forged steel plate....Your bullet was still movin pretty good if it punched clean through.
