edge gets wapiti

Hi started reading post on here about two years ago and got the bug bad. so we had shawn build us a rifle we got it in august and boy did the fun start .this rifle is so accurate we still cannot get over it we have stretched it out to 1950 yards on several different days what a gas. ok now for what we did on monday. my dad has been in a wheel chair for 26 years and must shoot from the car. this can be very hard to line up first elk were to close ran out of the road 45 yards over the bank so dad could not see them. next elk were 997 yards and before we could get the lazer to work to much rain and snow to get a hit some other guys ran them off. then on monday afternoon we spotted six more at 980 yards. put all the info in exbal made the ajustments and dad settled in and let it go and it went flat on impact the 300 gr seirra broke its back right at the liver doa I will try to post some pics of dad and his setup this weekend. o ya in oregon handycap hunters can shoot cows so no head mount this time but all bet we frame a picture
. and thank you shawn for a great gun.

I think I need to research and 'edge' to see what it is. Sounds fast and flat and accurate thats what I like best.
