1,000 yd \"F\" class target & gun.

Thought I would share a picture of my first 20-shot, 1,000 yd group. I shot this group several weeks ago.I happened to get the first relay of the morning and then went straight to the pit so I was able to get this pic. before anyone else shot at this target. I scored a 199-15 and shot two other matches the same day. The second match I shot a 200-13 and the third match I shot a 199-13,took first in all three.I took second in the combined 2-day,5 match shoot.This is way too much fun!

Had this picture sittin' on my desktop and had to share.Hope you enjoy. Oh yes only a bi-pod was used on all 5 matches [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

( I put the first pic.in coral draw and highlighted hits to make it easier to see.)


This is the actual photo with one sighter in the "10"

Excellent shooting!! What caliber did you use? One of these days I'd like to try a match or two. I doubt if I'll fair quite that well though.

Re: 1,000 yd \"F\" class target & gun.

Bill bailey,
I was using a 260AI with Lapua brass, and 142 SMK with 46 gr.of H4831SC for the last three matches which I placd first. The first two matches I was having inconsistant ammo with some new loads I tried,Then on the second match I had a 2 MOA point of impact change,which cost me a few ponts.I was hitting in the X and then all of a sudden one went 20" high! I thought I did someting wrong so I launched another one with the same aiming point and it was right next to the previous one,so I took off 2 min. and the next three went in the X,and the 4th one landed 20" low! so I put on 2 min.and finished the match.
That night I pulled the scope checked all the base and ring screws and put a different scope on and loaded up the 142 SMK's and found out I could shoot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] 60 rounds at 1,000 yds. loosing two points in the nine. The first place compedator was shooting a 6mm dasher,belly bench rest and did some really fine shooting.
Well, here is a few pixs of the gun.

Nice looking rig! Nice coloration on the stock!

What velocity do you get with those loads?

I was having similar problems as you, occasional shifts or individual bullets out of the groups. Did you ever figure out the the problem?
