We made the 500 yard club on Saturday

My buddy Wallace and I went groundhog hunting this past Sat. close to Orange Va. to a place we call the wind tunnel.hehehe. The wind gods were smiling on us as we had light winds and a beautiful day for shooting. I was able to make a 515 yard shot on a hog with my 243AI and my buddy Wallace made a 1 shot 1 kill (headshot no less with eyes bugged out) with his 6BR. We are both shooting the Sierra 70 grain Blitzkings. He got another one at 300 and I chased one around at 690 yards and connected with him in the hind quarters. I got so excited that I hit him that I wasn't able to finish the job by getting another round in him before he drug himself into his hole. We had a great day and I'm loving this!!!!

I also have a ?? What is your technique for dialing in for your windage adjustment? UP to now I have just been holding off for the wind, and I can see that if I had dailed some in the 690 shot may have been a solid kill.

Thanks Sam in Va. Hoggin'Heaven Thats where they are when I'm done!

    Sam,

    COngrats on the fine shooting. Dialing in for wind drift is basically the same as for elevation. Only problem is getting an accurate judgement of the wind speed!!!

    Again, congrats!

    Nice shooting. It won't be long till you'll be wanting to stretch it out more, and more, and more.... There just seems to be no end. This long range shooting sure can be addictive.

    Excellent shooting.
    I also shoot those 70 grain BK's out of my standard 6br and they are very destructive and super accurate.

    Congrats again!

    Congrats on joining the club. A friend and I just got in after a long time of searching the desert for a spot to shoot jack rabbits at long range. Now we have the bug for the 1,000yd club.
