Time to stretch the Allen Mag legs

Well the 270 Allen Mag is gonna get its first real deal long range test this weekend. Me an BJ are gonna try for the 1500yd pdog tommorrow.

BJ's wife is about to calve so this is the last weekend he can go out and play for a while so we figured we might as well give it a try. The 270 AM has been grouping pretty good and there will be very little wind and cool temps so Saturday might be the day.

If anyone has any encouraging words or tips I would love to hear them

thanks
Steve

Re: Time to stretch the Allen Mag legs

Go out this evening and put up a wind flag in middle of the dog town. Also put you up a cardboard box with a target on the front.

Tommorrow you will have you wind sock and if for some reason you have trouble getting dialed in you will have a target already there. Or if things are going good you can shoot you a tight three shot group at 1500 yds and brag about it to make the rest of us feel bad.

Oh yes try to remember that the big black things are not pdogs, they are cows.

Life changes after children arrive, and in my mind for the better. I killed a whole lot less animals after that but I would not trade it for anything. I will be out backpacking in the Appalachians this weekend with wife and son. No guns at all on the trip. No regrets at all.

Hope you make your hits.

PS remember the camera and make sure the batterries are good

That seems a little generous, but then my brain aint calibrated for those wildcat missiles [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Definately expecting a report on what dope it takes to get there.

I will be shooting my 308 to 1400 or so as well as my 6.5 as far as the clicks will let me.

the 308 takes 72MOA to hit at 1400 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

not sure on the 6.5

Good luck

JB
