Re: 338 Allen Magnums first chuck hunt, a bit of success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SS7mm,

Thanks for your kind words and more then anything your full support over the last +year. There are several on this board that have really helped me along and you all know who you are. Without the support of the best customers in the world, I could not afford to do this testing with the new Allen Magnums so this is only with the help of all of you as well.

By brother will be keeping his Kahn for this season at least. Probably keep it forever to be honest. For 800 to 1500 yard shooting it is actually a more practical chambering then my 338 AM because of the longer barrel life. We will now be concentrating on the 1000 and 1500 yard clubs with the kahns but now my sights have shifted to +2500 yards with the 338 AM.

I also need to stress that I fully realize that building a rifle to hold around 1 moa at this kind of range is one thing but to get lucky enough to have a bullet land on target at this range, especially a target of this size has alot of luck involved.

It happened relatively quick and may never happen again. I realize this and appreciate this more then I can explain. If it never happens again, I will be very happy to have at least done it once.

Like you said, doing it with one of my own rifles with one of my rounds...... hard to express how I feel right now. Very good for sure.

Being a good shot is a nessesity but realizing that alot of luck is still involved is also a nessesity to not only keep you sane when the close misses keep piling up and also to keep you humble when a bullet happens to land where you aim.

Today, the wind blew just right to put that bullet on the mark. I am thankful for that.

Again, thanks for your kind words and support.

TO everyone that has responded,

Thanks for the kind words, I greatly appreciate them. I was very fortunate to make this shot and fully know that any number of LRH members can make the same shot if given the chance and have a bit of luck on their side.

I will take a bit of luck when it comes my way anytime [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

I do not know what the Varmint Hunters all time record is but I do not think this breaks it. Not sure though. I think the all time record is around 3100 yards so I still have a LONG way to go for that one but its a place to shoot for anyway!!!

thanks again for the kind words!!

Unbelievable Shot!!!!!!
Kirby, it makes me wonder how far you could shoot a big Chuck if you also had a bigger scope. I am amazed with the
shot under ANY circumstance & as someone stated before it is
a shot that most people would never achieve. Thanks for sharing.

Wow Kirby that is amazing. To hit a chuck at that range in that many shots is pretty awesome, specially with a lower powered scope. Congratulations on such a great shot.

Kirby,

Nicely done buddy. Kind of makes hitting a whitetail at 1000 seem pretty tame. Good job and by the way nice looking rifle.
