Re: I finally made that 1000 yard shot....
Me and a few buds shoot them in Lovington,NM
I have some leads and phone #'s for more access but haven't had the time to pursue them. They are around Muleshue,Tx. Where in TX. are you?
What is even better in my opinion was the two back to back shots I made at 850 yards with a 6 Ackley. I shot once and hit low and left made a correction and wham! I watched him get ripped off the mound though the scope. Then is buddy came to check him out and I got him also. I think there was a lot more skill in this shot than the 1000 yard shot.
The verticle was pretty easy on the 1000 yard shot but the wind was a coin toss. I held in the same place everytime and was hitting I'd guess in a 12" circle around him. One finally contected. In the head no less. That was cool . It's neat to brag to my buddies who don't know better that I made a 1000 yard head shot on a PD.
Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
