LUCKY.....GROUP......CLUB ( BI - PODS - ..ONLY )

This would be the spot to post all groups shot off a bipod under 3/8 MOA. It would be nice, and you should get an honorable mention if it was shot past 200 yds., because that would make it even luckier. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

If it was shot with your bipod on a rock or concrete, you should be awarded the GOLD STAR of LUCK, as there are no luckier shooters in the world than YOU! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

For openers I would like to award the first GOLD STAR OF LUCK to a DR. in MO. who loaded his own .243 IMPL with 51.5 gr. of Reloader 25L and Berger 95 vLd (vLd = very Lucky docter) and shot this OUTSTANDING GROUP AT 607 YARDS in an 8-10 mph crosswind.

A Nesika L with a Lilja 3 groove 9" twist.

barrel length 25.250 inches. Fed 210 Lapua brass

NXS 5.5 x 22 R2 Badger Max 50 Rings

HS Precision Pro Series Stock

Who shot the best 600 yard group I ever saw?


The Doctor did!

I measured this at about .540 of one inch!

See for yourself at http://www.pbase.com/s1/inbox&page=2

Notice the distinct lack of vertical dispersion.

Nice shootin Doc [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: LUCKY.....GROUP......CLUB ( BI - PODS - ..ONLY )

That is very nice shooting indeed. I did not see the group on that sight, I even clicked on the link but I did not find it. I actually once fired a 3 shot group last year in preparation for an up coming hunt at 300 yards that measured .359". I am currently working on a load that might consistently cut bullet holes at 300 yards. I have one load already that shoots anywhere from .500 to .750 at 300 yards concistently. And yes that group was fired off a harris bi-pod.

Happy shooting everyone.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: LUCKY.....GROUP......CLUB ( BI - PODS - ..ONLY )

I have been lucky on a few occasions using my bipod, I think my best is when I shot a .75" three shot group on a steel target at 700 yards. Second is when I scored three consecutive head shots on the 800 yard Silleoutte, the group measured just over two inches.

Usually it is the wind that eats up my groups, one particular time I had a 8 shot group at 1000 yards that had a 1.5 inch vertical spread and around a 10 inch horizontal spread.

I really like the harris bipod and rarely shoot off anything else. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

That is some awsome shooting! I have never shot anything that small. The Winchester express that I built for myself will shoot sub 2" off a bipod at 600, sub 6" off a bipod at 1,000, and sub 8" at 1,500. The first group I ever shot at 2,000 was 18.5" wide and about 7 inches tall. We have been shooting under control off bipods with Stoners, AW's, and Rock's 50's for a decade, I think a few others have too. Woudn't hunt without one. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Just so I don't feel too inadequate with my meager skills, would that be 3 shot groups?
