Re: Meager 1130ish yard Chuck Pics

1130 is no small feat. I haven't done it yet and I would guess that less than 5 percent of the almost 5000 members of this site have even realistically tried a shot at this distance and I know that less than 1 percent of all bolt gunners even think this type of shot is do able if they even know what 1100 yards looks like.

Nothing meager about that shot. Good job.

My best with .25-06 is still just 275 yds [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
In East Texas, there are not many places you can even see 1130 yds let alone shoot it. Great job!

Hoyteman,
great shot bud. I wished my pop was still around, he would have loved this stuff. He was the one who would always make the shot that counted no matter what the distance. I did see him miss once or twice, but he always called those sighters. LOL

Hoyteman,
Great story and pictures, that is the stuff that makes this site worthwhile! What a wonderful way to spend time with your dad, you are so fortunate.
I haven't broke 1000 yet on a critter, hope to do it tho. Congratulations.
Thanks for sharing with us.
