My Longest First Round Cold Bore Hit to Date

I usually shoot this target from a different place. From there it is 1395 yards. You can see some of the old 1395 hits that I have painted over. The main reason I have never tried this from my drive way slab is, it is a booger to range that far away. The other night it was just before dark I got readings of 1562, 1564, 1562. I felt that this was a good reading. I was waiting for the perfect calm night to shoot. To night was it. I enteresd FC into my NF exbal program, dialed up 43.75 moa and 1 moa left for spin drift. Loaded a 300 gr .338 Berger Hybrid into my Lapua , found my hold and let her fly. I was able to get right back on the target to watch for dust....... no dust, then came this whack! Must have hit a rock??? NO!! there is a hit low right. I drove close and walked up and took this pic. 3 3/4" low and 6 3/4" RT of center orange. Orange circle is about 7".

FC:
Temp 70
Baro 25.69
Hum 30
MV. 2785
BC .820
Vel at target 1513
Energy 1525 ft-lb
Time of flight 2.29 seconds
Elevation 43.75 moa / -715.4" / 59.61'

Rifle: .338 Lapua, 10 twist Lilja, built by Joe Starnes
Scope: 8~32x56 NF NXS


Please don't take this as a brag, I am just happy as can be. I am confident the .338 Berger Hybrids have taken my affective range to the next level.
