long shot for me....

a week or so ago, i went out with a buddy of mine Eddie, who pokes around here sometimes. him and i went out after coyotes. well, on the first stand, after callin for a while Eddie asks me what my Kimber 84m 22-250 does at 415 yards... i told him it hits where i aim. he relayed the message to me that there was a jack rabbit sitting under a tree at 415 yards. sweet! i get to stretch the kimbers legs! i laid the legs of the bipod out, got in position and acquired my target. i put the 400 yard line of my leupold 4.5-14x40 Varmint reticle scope right on him ( by the way, Eddie is filming the whole time) the first shot flys an inch above his head! jacked another round in, re-acquired the jack and aimed just a tad lower.... the first words out of his mouth were : "well hes not sitting there anymore!" i made the trip to go get him. the 50 NBT took out his heart and lungs. the best part about it was watching the video! you can see the vapor trail perfectly on both shots! its awesome! this is my 2nd longest confirmed kill... my longest shot with my Kimber!

Re: long shot for me....

400+ yds on a small animal is a great shot in anybodies book and to be lucky enough to catch it on film is a bonus.

Good shooting

Re: long shot for me....

Good shooting. THose "long shots" can be defined by many aspects. The conditions at the time, the terrain, even the size of the critters. Sometimes in the bottoms we hunt, a 50yd shot is a long one, but your threading the needle through brush thick enough to choke a dozer.
