338 EDGE vs 1276 yd plate round # 2



Went out to setup for another LRH class this weekend and found myself in some rare perfect conditions. I posted proir shooting at this distance and sight.
CONDITIONS
Distance: 1276 yards
Downhill .98 cos
Temp 78 deg
Humidity 58%
Bar 26.3 ( station )
Elevation 3642 ft
Wind 1-2 mph from cooling air coming down the 3 draws I have to shoot across, very consistant

Elevation Adjustment - up 33.00 MOA
Windage Adjustment - right 1.25 MOA

Position - 9-13" "s" bipod and fanny poack rear

First shot was dead center for wind at 6:00 almost off the plate low, fired the second shot just to be sure I hadn't errored and placed that shot just to the right 2" same elevation, fired the 3rd shot and was not able to see the impact ( later found that it dead centered the post just below the plate). Corrected elevation up .75 moa and fired the 3 shots centered and slightly high, for 2 back to back sub 5" groups at 1276 yards. So since the conditions were so good I located a spot at 1974 yards, a bare dirt area with some stumps in it from a old burn. I dialed 74.25 moa up and 3.00 moa right, forst shot impact was 1 moa high, still left .50 moa. I made the corrections and held on a rock that appeared to be just over 1 moa wide and slightly taller or about 2x2 feet. 1 st shot dusted high on the rock. Figured I'd quite on a high note and packed it up. You just have to love really long range rifles.

An average of 0.380 MOA @ 1276 yards is indeed enviable!
Awesome shooting!

Re: 338 EDGE vs 1276 yd plate round # 2

It is 1/2" Hardox 40 18"x18". Expect to pay around 100.00 for a piece. It is alot of $ but has most of the proprties of AR500 but you can weld it. I welded a 4x4 stake pocket to the back and plant posts where I might want to shoot at it.
