Just so I don't feel so bad about my recent attempts I'm gonna send you some SE Idaho snow and mirage.

That's bobkitty good!

Your group shows that you set things up quite well. You'll be confident when you get that reticle on fur.

Re: First time for everything 1000 yard group

Thanks for the compliment royinidaho! The rifle is factory, I only use US869 in it, and it has 604 rounds shot through it at this point. I have been trying to shoot it again in the last 5 days, but you really must've sent the weather my way because it has been pretty cold and windy here. I hope to shoot again on Thursday at 1200 yds to see if I was just extremely lucky, or if I kinda know what I am doing. I will post the results either way, I would hate to take credit for luck!

awesome shooting! You must live out west to be able to shoot that far? I live in Wisconsin and am lucky to find a place to shoot out to 500 yds. Wish we could do more long range shooting hear. What kind of rifle you using?
