Re: Pics of my Latest 6.5-06 Toy

Got this rig out on the weekend and have a drop table out to 800yds done. Took 15 min of elevation to go from 100 to 800yds so pretty flat.

Muzzle vel is 2975fps which is exactly where I wanted to be.

Impact energy at 500yds is excellent and should have no issue with this load out to 800yds.

Was shooting and hitting clays at 500yds and basketball size rocks out to 800yds off a bipod. Simulated field shooting.

Very happy with the rig, the recoil and the accuracy. It will probably never shoot better then 1/4 MOA but considering the components and action, a great budget LR rig.

I also had wonderful luck with the turrents on the Elitw 4200 6X24 I am using. Just dial in what you need and pow, these is a poof of smoke right where you want it. Will do more testing practising but so far the confidence is there.

will post more info if there are other questions...
