Wooo Hoo I did it!!!

Well, I feel pretty good 'bout now.. I just got back from the first guided PD trip of the year. I had the pleasure of guiding Jerry Rice from Nor-Cal Precision and 2 of his buddies. They had with them over 20 rifles of all sorts and I got to "play" with a bunch of 'em. Great guys and to say he can shoot is an understatment.... I learned a thing or three!!

BUT.. I broke the 1000 yard barrier with a shot on a PD at 1140 with my new 300 Ultra.. man that 190 gr sierra bull dozed the big fat PD... I was happy as a pig in $hit!! then things got better... as if they could...

Jerry had just finished a new 6/284 sleeved rem 700 action, McMillian BR stock, 30" K&P fluted, straight taper, vias break, Jewwel trigger ( 4 oz. ) and a Lupy LR target on top....

well.. guys not only did I acheive over 1K but over 1500 as well.. tipped one over using a 107 sierra outta the new 6/284 at 1520 yards!!! took me six shots!! man .. I think I'm gonna just sit back and watch the rest of the summer... it was a great day for LR PD's as it was little over cast with a hint of sun every now and then, winds at 5 -10 mph... ( no really .. only 10 mph in WYO!!! ) I pretty much had the elevation right on the first shot just had to walk it in with the wind.. It switched 2-3 times over the 1500 yards.. was a great lesson for me as well!!! Jerry said he could see the vapor trails and the bullet was zig-zaggin" on the approach.. kinda cool.... I then had the opportunity to watch him take one at 1300+ with the same rifle.. but it only took him 3 shots.. but hey the guy is good... I got to see the wind switch 2-3 times as the bullet was in flight.. that was cool!!

all in all a great time!!

That's great... but you'll have us hooked soon and that's a bad thing.

I haven't broken the 1000 mark yet, someday.

That sounds like a great start to a great Idea! Remember I want a crack at that 1K club too. How big are the praire dogs? ( in inches ) so I can make some steel targets to practic on.

Did you use a bench or just prone?
