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

Boyd, I saved the pic to zoom in on it. Is there really a buck under the rock there, I can see something but can't quite make it out, looks like he's looking left though if it is?

I'm guessing you killed the buck and are saving the juicy details until everyone plays their cards? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Where we go to shoot Ultra Long Range, just screwing around, the hits are seen MUCH more easily with the big 300gr Sierras out of the 338/378wby than any of the smaller 30 calibers, that's a fact. The 220-240's might be a better comparison but all we've used is 180's in the 30's so far. The 300's SMACK the crap out of most everything hit with authority!

The 15mph wind with a 30min switch in direction could kick you ass on this shot boys. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] The hill only being 700 yds out and likely giving some amount of crosswind component on the updraft/downdraft adds to the disruption on the final leg of the journey too.

Even if the sighter shot caused the buck to move, I'd take a couple to be sure. The angle looks to be about 5 degrees.

Brent

The buck 99.9% of the time won't move if the sighter impact is 100 yds away from it. He won't relate any slight muzzle blast he may hear to the impact of the bullet.

Try the 240 gr 30 cal. You will be surprised as to seing the impact unless your in 2 feet of snow. Even the 300 gr would not be able to be seen with that much snow on the ground either. A dead tree stump or a rock is then used as the sighter target.

Later

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

Learn something new every day; yes, I have yet to hunt in hilly terrain--most of my shooting is done on level ground, thus far, actually, frozen lakes. Yeah, I think you're right, 17 is a bit steep. But!--it'd make a nice [but short] spotter shot. I looked at it again--SOB, you know...I think my eyes are going? I still can't tell the angle, but the common consensus is 5 {thankfully for me, my cosine indicator would put a stop to my stupidity, assuming I remembered to mount it]. Damn, if that's five degrees...I'd better pass up the shot, too. So, thus far, most people have passed on the shot. What about...shooting that big damned rock above Rudolph with a 300 grainer, and causing a landslide?--brings the deer right to you, gutted and all! I was under the impression we could find some spots in the wind, or a constant within say...twenty minutes, or so, give or take. No, if the wind were switching radically, I'd go home, and mix up a cup of HC.

DC Yeah, the two year thing, what a bite. You want to hear a real kick in the pants?--I got my action in from BAT today; I never thought to check and see if I could purchase that sucker down here, just assumed I could. I may have to have the damned thing sent to MN and buy it when I get back there. Jelius...<shakes his head> I hope the BATF and Friends folks are still around when I take political control. I just hope they are... [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
