Defensive Edge Class 02-08

Just got all of my crap put away from this years second long range hunting class. A great group of guys with a hand full of forum members. Despite the rather wet conditions the class went off without a hitch. This class by lucj was comprised of people all with Defensive Edge built rifles and all with Nightforce scopes, that was a first. Saturday was treated with alot of rain but good shooting conditions. Sunday was really nice weather wise but shooting conditions were difficult (go figure). Everyone got a really education of difficult condition shooting. When conditions are like that you miss more targets but you learn considerably more. Everyone in this class did quite well, I'd be happy to hunt with any of them.

Shawn and JR put on a great class and we had a great group of guys. I learned quite a bit in those two days and consider the class a bargain for the knowledge I gained and the guys I got to meet.

260,

There were 3 300 RUM's, 1 7mm WSM, and 1 338 Edge, all wore 5.5-22 NXS's except 1 3.5-15 NXS.

SP2,

I have guys with factory rifles show up on occasion. You will need a rifle capable of consistantly shooting 1 moa, can stand to shoot 50+ rounds a day through, and has a scope with consistant repaetable target knob on it. I just don't allow shooters with rifles don't meet these specs. If you don't have equipment that will perform these tasks your class time will be terrible and you won't learn much. I have run alot of guys with stock Sendero's in magnum calibers with a Leupold turreted optic through with good success.

Mike,

Glad you could make it and had a good time.

how did the 300 rum do in comparison to the 338 edge. was/ is the difference noticable? If so, at what distance does the difference become noticable? how much do the conditions play a part in that difference?

The 300 rum did ok. That is what I was shooting with a 180 gr E-Tip bullet because I am hunting in a no lead zone. The 200 gr accubond did a little better in the wind. There was a noticable difference in the 300 gr SMK out of the edge. Brett was using 1/2 the windage I was using in some cases. Also a big difference in how the reactive targets responded by being hit by those big 300 gr. bullets, it almost knocked them out of the stands.
