Made my longest shot yesterday.

I went to a 1000 yard range yesterday and it was awesome. It was really 1075 yards, which I found out after my first 3 shots fell very short of the target. Came up 5 MOA and adjusted for wind then I hit it. It's a choir at 1000, you really have to read the wind, and it's always changing.







My glass got a lil dirty.

    Nice rig. What caliber is it?

    Thanks for sharing and Congratulations!

    I could be mistaken, but it kinda looks like you're shooting a "factory" VTR with an aftermarket stock?

    Tell us about it.

    How big was the 1K target? Did you hit it more than once? What caliber? looks like a short action.

    Great range and good looking rigs on the line. Where is that range?

    I know this much from another post I found him on. It's a .308 and he is shooting 168 A-max match ammo.
