Factory Savage 7mm rem mag 1000 yard video

This is my Uncle's Factory Savage 7mm Rem Mag, that I am doing the handloads for. This was our final load development, so we wanted to see what it would do at longer ranges. He can now say that he is a member of the 1000 yard club. We had to tweak the MV on our ballistic software to get it to mach up with the actual drop. That is why he shot over the target with that first shot. But we got it dialed in. Then we moved up to 750 yards to make sure all was well. Man was he happy! He could not believe that he could even hit the target in the first place. All that has been done to the gun, was have George at (Precision Shooting Sports) put a Holland Brake on it. It has a 20 MOA bass with a Nightforce scope on it. Sorry I don't have a picture of the gun. I will get one.

The Load info, cause I know you will ask.

Skyking,

Good shooting. Its fun isn't it!

Looking at the video and seeing the topography and wind direction. It may not have been incorrect velocity that caused the bullet to initially hit high. It might have been wind induced lift.

I KNOW he's hooked. I just joined the 1000yd club a few weeks ago with my factory Savage with a McGowan barrel, and I know I'm hooked. Good shooting there. My drops didn't work out with JBM either. JBM was giving me 10MOA drop at 578 yards, but I had to dial in 9.5MOA to hit it. At 1033 yds the drop was a little off as well. Not a lot of difference, but I missed the first shot at both ranges. Once I got it dialed in though, the bullet found it's mark every time. Good shooting.
