How close can you drive to that target.

Looks to me your well with the radius of a certain media fixture.

Thanks for the reverse pic. I now know here 1135 is. Well, at least close.
Roy, I can drive a 4 wheeler right to it. But I took a 400 Suzuki dirt bike and that rocky hillside full of cactus made the better judgement kick in. So I parked 1/2 way up and walked the last 50 yards. Those cantelope size rocks are a killer on 2 wheels. They have grown, they were smaller when I was younger.

Very very impressive shooting!! And you said "driveway slab" so I'm assuming that is where you live? Absolutely beautiful! 1500yard target set up from your driveway, that's awsome!

It is awesome, I love Montana!! But I will soon have to move the targets. The elk have moved up in the hills for higher summer pasture. The shot didn't bother them, but when I walked up to see the target I spooked a herd of about 75 plus babies out fom over the hill. I can't be scarin the elk like that..

Your killin me, that's just awsome... Luckily I'm young and am not tied down. Any good technical universities around there?

Sweet...don't run 'em though...you want 'em fat for the fall!

1.9 left...and the same elevation essentially as exbal with coriolis on. Doesn't seem to make sense. Maybe eaglet can chime in here...doesn't seem like LB would've put you on there.

Your new slogan could be " I shoot farther than heck, I shoot Bergers"

I did some playing at the range with LB the other day and I got my spin drift and Coriolis tuned perfect I feel, much shorter ranges but since it was dead calm I feel good about the data. Just a thought with LB, you can turn your stability number down and take the extra left out that your seeing, Coriolis is constant windage but spin drift seems more subject to more variables so you could tune it to be dead on. Just a thought Same speed and G7 .490 drag and 1.20 stability = 43.8 and 1.5 with all bells on.

I think I know where your ranch is at, my dad did some excavator work some where out there, we were looking at that area on Google Earth.
