Re: how often "honestly" do most here shoot past 500 yards
22's- 50 to 150 yards at least twice a week (i can stop for quick range sessions on my way to work), 200- 400 once or twice a month- it's fun getting my ass handed to me by the wind!
270- still have a little load development to do (went up to 150 gr bullets), but i always take a few shots at 600-800 when i get time- it was more than twice a week this spring, but it's been neglected for the last month or so due to work & playing with the 338
338LM- just got my 111 rejiggered & zeroed- had to send it in once & then do some surgery on the stock. nothing past 100 yet, but i'll be checking dope this week for my 111 & a friend's 110BA. hopefully we can get them dialed out to 1500 or so.
all in all, since april i've averaged about once a week for 500+ yard shooting. two months of being unemployed gave me tons of range time. now i just need to find some spots to stretch it out on my way to & from work. if i can find an easily accessible spot that's close enough to the highway, i can see myself being able to do some long shots 2-3 times a week with the 270- i can spot my own shots past 400 with that gun. not sure how well that's gonna work with the 338...
