Shawn Carlock built 338 Edge at 1000 Yds

I've owned by .338 Edge built by Shawn for about 3 years now. I've shot it a lot at the range and dumped a few Mule Deer with it out to 620 yards. Our rifle range is 600 yards long so that has been the limit for my normal practice. I had the opportunity to shoot on the 1000 yard range for the first time last month and thought I should share the results.

The wind was swirling over the range but after studying it for a few minutes I thought the net result was no adjustment. I brought out the drop chart I had built the day before with estimated conditions and fired my first shot at a 1000 yards. My partner lowered the target and when he raised it I was a happy camper. The shot landed 6 oclock low in the 8 ring. I adjusted up one click and the next shot was at 1 oclock in the 8 ring. I then proceed to fire 5 more shots. The group was 10" with no shot outside thee 8 ring with 3 in the 10 and one in the 9 ring. Not bad for the first attempt at 1000 yards.

I've got 2 deer tags and an Antelope to fill this year over in Eastern Montana. I hope to streach that 620 Yard kill to around 800 or so.

Thanks Shawn for building a great gun.

Isn't it a pleasure to actually get results from what you paid for.

Maybe we could get Shawn and some of the other great "smiths" on this site to run our country. There would be ALOT less BS, that's for sure....

Nice shootin.

You should expect results like that from a gun built by "THE MAN ".

The gun he built me is a killing machine !

Cheers
