Re: 2144 yard Chuck pics.

That is one hell of a shot Brian,

You guys are driving me nuts. Me and BJ still have to break in our barrels and fireform a ton of brass. As soon as we get that done we are gonna try our hardest to add 2 more names to that 2k list

Congratulations
Steve

Re: 2144 yard Chuck pics.

Kregg,
If I had to keep track of all the money I have spent on this venture it would take some of the fun out of it. with that said I GUARANTEE that I'm still in debt with the bank for some time on this project.

Re: 2144 yard Chuck pics.

thanks lerch,
getting to 2K is not as easy as you think, a target will hold still while you shoot, but a chuck can evacuate the scene while the bullet is in flight. with a 3second plus flight time a lot can happen that is beyond your control.

Tell me about it.

Tonight I was up shooting some skeet at our canyon range with a few friends of mine that are just scattergun enthusiasts and when they asked me why we built the Moag and our other guns, I pointed across the canyon to the other side about 1 mile away where a cell phone tower was. I said, "so if there is a chuck or an elk over by that tower, we can dump him from here" and they just looked at me like <font color="blue"> WHY???? </font>

I guess there is a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness!

Fantastic shooting Brian.

Bet you can't hit 2300 at the undisclosed location though. I hear 2144 in the Utah mountains is only like 1500 in the Idaho desert.
