Good job.

I too cut my teeth in with a 243 winnie. I never shot it at a full 1K but did at 900 yards.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

And you won't be disappointed. The 6BR is extremely accurate.....but that isn't news to anyone. I had a custom 243 first, then switched to the 6BR. Everyone that shoots my 6BR for the first time just turns around with a smile on their face. Case in point, I let the owner of the company I work for shoot my BR this past week. He had never shot a custom rifle before. To make a long story short, he was busting 4" clays with ease at 300 for the first time...and was happy.

I know that is no great feat, but I always enjoying watching "newbies" to the custom world shoot.
