Went out today and did some wandering around looking at animals and also did a little shooting.
I had along some water jugs and shot them from 417 yards out to 984 yards. I set up a couple of jugs to shoot at a downhill angle at 1500 yards but when I tried to drive up to the shooting spot there was a tree across the road so they will have to wait a while. The jugs at 650 and 984 blew up great it's just that I couldn't get them on video. I'll have to try the regular video camera with a better zoom.
This is a small video of a jug springing a leak at 417 yards courtesy of the 7mm Allen Magnum. "Video of water jug"
There is a slight time delay because I was by myself and had to start the camera, turn to the gun, close the bolt, acquire the target and send one down range.
All I had with me was my digital camer and the zoom is only 10x. The jugs at longer ranges just don't show up as well as this one so I've got to work on my video skills and get them up to "BJ" standards.

Sure is a lot more fun than paper punching. Looked for some chucks but no luck.
It's like they say.......The worst day shooting is better than the best day working.
