**VIDEO** First time 1000 yard shooter

Yesterday I met up with a friend of another gent from another forum and made a trip to the range. He had never shot past 600 yards before and wanted to try 1000 yards.

He started off with his Tikka T3 Varmint in .308 and factory 168gr ammo. He was doing a great job smack'in the steel at a grand.

Amber then came over and decided to shoot some chickens with the AR (see video below)
and I broke out the 6XC.

After some dry firing to get use to the 2oz. trigger he then put 5 rounds on target at 1000 yards.

Everyone was having so much fun shooting I decided I need to do some shooting too.

It was a great day to be at the range. I think we all had a good time and hope Darin comes out and shoots with us again soon.


Take care,Stan

    What was the rifle you were shooting at 1000? You said a T3, but that is unlike any T3 I have ever seen. Your girl was doing some good shooting too. She was really getting into a rhythm.

    The rifle is chambered in 6XC. The gent in the first part of the video was shooting a Tikka T3 Varmint (not pictured in the video) and was doing pretty well with it.
    We then went on to shoot the 6XC you see in the video.

    My rifle you see in the video is a custom build..built by my friend and myself. It is based on a Surgeon 591 action. Chassis/stock is a JP Enterprises MOR-07. Bartlien barrel with a 1:7.5 twist. Nightforce NXS scope. Shooting 107 SMK's at around 2925fps.

    Take care,Stan

    I was going to say you were doing pretty good with a .308 if that was the rifle. That is a pretty slick set up. So why the 6XC and not a plain old 243 or 6x47 Lapua? What are the advantages of the chambering you chose? I know they use that same caliber quite extensively in Williamsport.

    Never mind! I did some quick research and see the validity of the round now.

    Great videos. Saw them earlier today over on YouTube where I actually subscribe to your channel.

    You're a lucky man to be married to Amber.
