Broke the 1moa barrier @ 1000yds!

Thanks in large part to all the great info I've picked up on this board, I broke the 1moa barrier at 1000 yards today. Five shots in 10.25 inches, a personal best. Not too long ago I thought 500 yards was long range and had never tried MatchKings. All that has changed. Thanks all!

Great shooting!!

That feels almost as good as sex, but the euphoria sure lasts longer!

My best so far has been a couple of 7" groups ( thanks to this board also ) Everytime it makes me walk on clouds for a few days. I can't wait until I finally shoot a five!

Cool, what rifle and cartridge were you shooting? Is that 82.5gr RL22?

Congrats, Tim, on the 7" groups! That's just plain awesome!

Brent, I was shooting a Remington 700 Sendero with Leupold 6.5-20x50 MilDot in 270 Winchester. The load is 58.5gr RL22 (good gracious, not 82.5gr)and a 135gr Sierra MatchKing. Can't believe them MatchKings, with the same POI at 100 yards, they drop 9 feet less than 150gr Hornady SP! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
