Re: 640 yard chuck pic WITH THE 22HORNET (the BOAG) baby of all guns
7mmRHB, great story and WHAT A SHOT!!!!! It sounds like all of you guys have a blast together. I am currently trying to find a group of people who are interested in long range shooting at varmints. I have one friend who is currently having a longrange varmint rifle built, I hope he gets into it as much as I am. Next year, we are going to travel to a couple of states to shoot pdogs and chucks. I live in California, and I am currently having a hard time finding a good longrange place to shoot varmints. I have been scouting the Mojave Desert for some longrange gong shooting, and I think I have found a place. My Dad and I are going to scout it out and use his GPS system, we use for surveying, to measure distances and elevation changes. It looks like this place wiil allow me to shoot out to around 2500 yards, however, there are no varmints in the area. I have informed Goodgrouper that a friend and I will be coming out that way next year and I would love to go on a chuck hunt with you guys. My heavy 338 Lupa Magnum Improved, BAT 10"/LIJA 36" 1.750 at the muzzel w/break/McMillan 50 HBR/JEWELL 2oz trigger/topped with Nightforce 12x42-56mm NXS with bases and rings adding 65 MOA. The rifle will weigh around 65lbs, should be done buy March 06. I took the advise from Goodgrouper and went with the 50 HBR and a heavier set up, I was originally going to go with the Tooley MBR and a lighter rifle, but Goodgrouper changed my mind. Once again, great shot with the B.O.A.G. I am currently trying to think of catchy name for my big gun. Good shootin, Wildcat.
