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

    It's a blast, isn't it?

    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.
