This tread makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I hate to see anyone sling crap at each other, especially on this site.

Eddybo, good work, good shooting and good for you for helping/coaching the other huntiers with thier shots. Can't wait to see the pictures!

Re: Kirby built 338AM takes down 7 cows 515-1187 yards

I Think the ones that have the biggest problem with shooting game at long range are the ones that can't do it. You can give anyone a rifle and tell them to shoot a target or animal at 100, 200 or even 300 yards and they will make a hit without any practice. Tell that same shooter to hit a target at 1000+ yards and they can't do it. It takes practice, practice, practice and even more practice. Anyone who is willing to spend that much money on a custom rifle with a custom caliber is going to practice. I had a .375 Cheytac built by Lawton and put over 300 rounds through it before i went hunting with it. I was able to shoot 3 shot groups at 1.5 inches at 1000 yards cross canyon in in western Oregon. I didn't have a chance to shoot an elk this year but i feel my skills are good enough to take an elk at 1000 yards and plan to do so next year. And thats what i have to say about that.

Jeeper....

What kind of bullets are you shooting? I was worried about availability in .375 for an accurate hunting bullet. Good shooting the NBRSA record is 1.473.

I shoot 350 gr Sierra match kings. I think you can get them from Lawton or from Cheytac. I am also going to try a 300 gr Nosler accubond. I am not sure how the accubonds will shoot yet but the Sierra's shoot awsome. They where a $1.25 a bullet when i bought them. Rocky mountian bullet company also has an aluminum tiped 370 gr bullet. they say the bc is .948 and they are $245.00 for 100. Hope that helps.

Eddybo,
Congrats on your great hunting trip!!! Looking forward to see the pictures.
Wish I was there as one of your friends shooting long range, would have been great to have you as a spotter, that would have made me feel very comfortable. Nobody can argue your success, just ignore the negative comments. Keep on posting and on teaching with tips and hunting stories, so we the guys who dont know as much about LRH can keep on learning!!!

Eddybo, as the other members have said, keep the posts coming. I'm sure we all agree that ethics are important and we should only take the shots that we are comfortable and 100 % sure of. You obviously have the equipment and knowledge that allows a greater comfort level than others. Great job on your hunt and for introducing others to the sport. Honestly, if it weren't for guys such as yourself taking time to share your knowledge and experience, most of us wouldn't be half as far along as we are. Keep up the good work!
