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]

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.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

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]

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


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?
