500yd & 800yd pics

First pic of me, my Savage and steel target. Bottom Group was best load I shot; 7 shots excluding the real low one measured about 2.5". The other pic was from 800 yds., or 786yds. to be exact. 2 in the red 3 real close together. I'm very happy with this Rifle(savage 10fple2a), Scope,(Bushnell Elite)and loads. (45gr.Varget & 168gr. Amax's)


What do you guy's REALLY think.

Re: 500yd & 800yd pics

(786) I'm not real sure. Those three were within 3" but the other two were 4-5 inches apart.
Not a very good shooting sample of what I think the Gun can really do. I was shooting from a bipod resting over the hood of my truck... so not the best shooting rest. But none the less impressive.
