My first long range shoot

This was shot at 915yds with a 7STW i have been building. I hit 8 of 10 shots missed the first 2 had to correct for wind then hit on the next 8 shots. The target measures 1'X2'

COngrats on a great rifle and good shooting with a 7mm. Didnt think they shot that far
(according to some here). Your target gives me plenty of hope for my own 7mm.

I tell you what after seeing what it did at 900 i am 100% confident that this gun will shoot under a 12" group at 1200yds.

This was with 73gr of RL-22 and the 160gr Accubond pushing just over 3200fps. I want to try the 168VLD but i can not find them anywhere.
