First time shooting at 1k
Got to shoot 1000 yards for the first time Saturday. Man, what a rush!
An experienced shooter was kind enough to let me shoot his Savage 6.5/284 with hand-loads he has worked up for it. 10.3" group & 47/50 points (5 record rounds). Good enough to win the Factory Gun Class.
I knew that shooting that far was a completely different animal, but doing it sure is different than thinking about it. The furthest I had shot before was 600, but that was a long time ago qualifying with an M-16.
I've now crossed an item off of my bucket list, and envy you guys who get to shoot long distance regularly even more!
