640 yard chuck pic WITH THE 22HORNET (the BOAG) baby of all guns

I promised 7mmrhb that I would post this pic of him getting the 500 yard club because he can't type fast so here it is. He did say that he will post on it later tomorrow when his wife can help him.

Here is his pic and well done!




Here is the bullet that killed the chuck. It is a 40 grain Nosler bt. That is something I have never seen before, a recovered, mostly intact ballistic tip. You know that hit WAAAYY out there for it to slow down that much. Proof that it can be done IF you THINK it can! (this pic probably won't go through until 8/10/05 late)





ANother view of the dent in the side (sorry for the blurriness, I don't have a good close up focus) and notice the orange tip is gone!



ANd here is the boag next to the moag. Funny that it takes that much bigger of a cartridge to go another 1400 something yards!




OH, and by the way, 7mmrhb IS getting that chuck stuffed! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Great Job!!!! quite a feat with a little 100 yard gun. It is great to see the little under dogs get the credit they should. I thought I was doing something shooting hog at 650 yrds with .223 and 75 gr A-Max, boy I was wrong. Good shooting

I am pround to have a 500 yd hit on a whitetail . . . I'm man enough to know that was luck, but 22 Hornet on a 600+yd chuck . . . I vote for skill! Nice shot.

It would be interesting to see a calculation on the terminal velocity and energy at 640 yds. Little 25 gr bullets out of a 17 Rem don't have much. Plus there is not much damage to the bullet so it must have been gasping and wheezing the last few yards trying to get to the chuck.

Really a great idea and fun thing to do shooting the 22 Hornet that far.

That is a great shot, based on exbal with a velocity of 3060fps the velocity and energy at 640 yards is 1073 fps 102 ft-lb.

Great pictures.
