    Good shooting, but another 40 yards and those 168's wouldn't have made it. Everybody knows they don't make it to 1000 yards.

    I hear a challenge!!!

    Bump it out to 1010 yds just to prove him wrong hahah

    Great shooting I have the same rig with a 6-24 and same exact load but haven't stretched the barrel out that far. 600yds is as far as ive shot with it but amazing results.
