Kirby,

Congratulations on one heck of a shot. Simpley amazing when you think of all the dynamics involved.
The pics are fine, thanks for sharing.

Again, congrats.

Kirby,
Great shot!!! As far as luck is concerned, I think the old saying ( The harder you work the luckier you get) is appropriate here. You and the gun obviously both shoot very well!!!! Good (luck) at 2500 yrds.----7mmRHB

That was an absolutely fantastic shot! That was definitely a small target.

After watching Goodgrouper and UncleB going for chucks at that extreme of a range I can truly understand what kind of skill and precision it takes to attempt such a shot - of course a little bit of luck doesn't hurt either [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Kirby,
I see you brought your brother into LRH with you,makes it even more fun at times like this to share it with family and friends.
The extra 400fps of the 338AM must really help, I know it took me and goodgrouper more than 4 shots each to get our 2000yard+ chucks (that's why your loppin' a few inch's off the 338MOAG barrel)
as for the 3100yd shot it is very controversial to me but I will leave it at that.
CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!! with the disclaimer that I want to beat you to 2500yds.

Your my hero. What a amazing shot.

How much does Black sunshine weigh?
What are the advantages of building a rifle this heavy compared to say 16 lb rifle.
Forgive me for my ignorance but I'm new at this.
