    Great shooting. I will be heading out later this week for my first 1000yd session with a new rifle. I have done some before in the military but not like this. Hope to shoot as well as you did.

    Get a 10-50x60 Sightron SIII scope and you can see your bullet holes.

    I had the pleasure of meeting a March rep at a 1k match in fairmont, WV. He let everyone look through the March line up, and you can see 26cal holes at 1k with the 8-80 easy, but if the mirage isn't bad you can see 30cal + bullet holes with a 12-42NF or 10-50 SIII.

    Open your bolt and put the muzzle of your rifle right against the ac vent in the dash if your truck. It is surprising how quikly it will cool your barrel. I think the cold air blowing inside the barrel is the trick.
