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!

Pete

Your rifle doesn't know whether it's shooting 10 yards...or 1200 yards; only YOU KNOW!

It's a MIND GAME!

Yeah I know! If I hadn't just purchased an AR-15 I'd be looking at a 6BR one of the guys is selling. Might pursue it more next year.
