Re: 500 yard bullet impact

That is amazing! I'm impressed. That's still a thumping!

What ammo did you use?

Thanks for posting!

Please describe the rig you are getting to 500 with. I would be interested to hear how much up you had in your scope to get that far. JS aka 308

That must be some soft lead or quite a bit of retained energy. Needless to say I'm impressed!

I am shooting a cz 452 scout with a tasco 2.5x10-42mm scope. I shoot mostly blazer ammo, I crank the scope as much as it will go. then hold about 8 mil high. shooting at a 30inch concrete cutting saw blade.

Re: 500 yard bullet impact

There's a very good reason why the flaps on .22 Rimfire ammo are labeled "Dangerous with 1-1/4 miles".
