Re: Cold Bore Challenge

Its the only rifle I have other than my .22lr, I take it coyote hunting. But I would like to deer hunt with it later this year.

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

Your 900yd shot was good. Just have to limit your shots on those windy days.

What do you think after watching all 11 days? and be honest.

I think your spot on maybe even a little farther, your shooting at a 6 inch target, bump that up to vital sized 10" plus and your hits will increase. Most of your misses are close. Or get a dopler radar enabled burris eliminator that reads wind conditions for you, anywhere from shooting position to target and they must have added a vectronix rangefinder when nobody was lookin that actually ranges beyond 500 yards. with that my friend first round hits at any range if you have a barrel stretcher on??? yeah right. Sorry thats a hard one to let go. I appologize this is a serious post and your inspiring a excellent shooting challenge, you have skills and you aren't afraid to show them in any conditions, anyone serious about long range hunting should be shooting this. I wish I had a camcorder that wasn't from the 80's. So while I'm shooting this I will make no claims as I can't prove anything at the moment. My phone contract is up soon maybe I can get an iphone and adapter to work decent. Thanks ClayneB

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

I think you are doing what everyone should be doing, learning limitations. All rifles, unless you have some sort of rifle never released to the public is going to have a limit in WIND. Elevation is easier and with todays programs quite simple to dial. Wind is easy, IF it is a steady wind from shooter to target.
Shoot over various terrain features in changing wind conditions and the game changes.

I applaud you for doing this and putting it on the forum, misreads, all of it. Very few people can actually put their money where their mouth is and you are doing it.

I have been doing the same thing for the past several months, just not videoing the results, until now. For me, the limits are identified regarding wind, wind reads, and terrain features.

So honestly, good work. Even the pro's, no matter the sport, will admit they have hurdles to jump. Those who don't are liars.

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

I was thinking about doing this, but I have a Burris E3 on my rifle so I guess I would learn nothing and it would be to easy for me.

So the E3 reads the wind also?

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

I think he was joking. Better be. The scope is cool for sure, but it has many limitations. You don't have to DOPE the scope like a traditional set up, but it is no magic pill by any means.

BTW- if you happen to head to Boise this summer let me know.
