    Someone pointed out my case of Dyslexia, I said 8.5 mll and I dialed 9.5 mil.
    Just went and checked my ballistic chart. and I should have dialed 9.5 mil. Guess I was thinking one thing and talking about another. haha

    Cool shooting, Ive done the same in the past. Going to be doing more of this again soon with 3 new rifles, getting, 1 new scope yet, steel plates and posts and driving out in the big country here to to set up a few locations soon, no video, But the same practice. Get a couple of Shawn Carlock's videos from Defensive Edge for some wind reading info that is good and up in the Mtns also. Keep up the good work, its great to see the videos. My hat's off to you for sharing it all. Its the way to do it for real conditions in the field for hunting.

    I think this is a great thread. All LR hunters should be doing something like this because it's that first cold bore shot that counts. Unfortunately for me, it's a 40 min drive to the local rifle range which only has a 428 yd longest target range and the closest 1000 yd range is close to 1.5 hours one way

    I need to do a little scouting

    Hey great thread and good shooting. You should be pretty happy your last shot at that distance with a 15x scope at a 6" circle! I'm getting anxious to go out and give this a try. I just need it to stop snowing, sleeting and raining.
