Accurate rifles suck at 1073 yards

Went out to shoot the first rounds in over a week, which for me is about 7 days longer than normal.
Took my Rbros built 338 Lapua with some 300 grain MK's over 100.5 grains of WC872. Drove 20 minutes up into the hills above the house.
Found a canyon and ranged a .7mil wide x.5mil tall rock at 1073 yards. Dialed up 31MOA. Prone off a Harris bipod and Redman rear bag. 3-7 mph tail wind with a slight push left. Held favoring right and squeezed one off. Center hit on the rock and no witnesses, FuK. Stood up and thought about it for a minute, should I just go home or try 4 more?? Went with 4 more, all hit the rock in about a .3 mil area. Way happy I took the 4 more!
Target rock is just right of the pointy evergreen, in the rock slide.

    Per the title, whatchabitchinabout!

    That's pretty fair for a guy shooting a rifle with the bolt on the handicapped side.

    Oh! and by the way, the 4 more then again and then one more time is how I shot out a darn good barrel.

    Easy guys. There's a Chinese proverb that goes like this:

    Righthanded Man with Bolt on left may not be handicapped...just dumb

    1073 yards some good shooting. Stop worrying about having a witness...so far it doesn't look like anyone here isn't believing you.
