Like I said, I could be wrong. If that's what you get and you've proofed it, I believe you. All I'm saying is at that range with that setup you have to be one wind reading SOB to be able to put it in the boiler room in country like this.

Taken weekend before last in my elk hunting grounds.

Deepwater, welcome to the site. I apologise for the treatment you first received.

It is unfortunate that there ARE trolls looking to cause trouble and you got caught in some crossfire.

It happens. I do think that maybe we should be a little less paranoid because the fact is we "trolled" ourselves in this thread because we thought there was a troll.

Thanks, all. I plan on sittin' back and learning. That will be a nice change, I spend my days teaching at the college level. Most of my current shooting is handguns...and two squirrels a week. So, this will be a BIG change. I am planning on relocating next year, so I will be a bit closer to real big game hunting.

If you like handguns in general, then also realize some of us nuts shoot specialty handguns at long range also. The rifle guys do not get to have all of the fun

Now that everyone has knocked the rough edges off, you'll meet some of the nicest, most helpful people ever.

I'm still working on 3-600 yard consistency, and some of these guys have hit stuff at nearly 2000 yards!

I try to learn something from everyone here, even though some of them are downright salty at times!!!!

As for the .300 RUM and your original question: Yes it could be done. No, it couldn't be done by someone without LOTS of work!

Good reading!!


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
