New Range opening up

I am not sure if this is the right forum for this topic so sorry ahead of time for the moderators

BJ has managed to get one of his buddies all eaten up with the long range bug and he has decided to build a new long distance range. He has fixed targets all the way out to 1460yds and he has built some kind of bench that he says will be really sturdy.

He is shooting a rem 7 STW and he is trying the Hornady 162gr A-Max. I figure this should be a pretty nice combo for some long range pdogs and yote's as well as our skinny whitetails.

I think we are going to go shoot our at his place this saturday so we will take some pics and show them of to you all. This will also be the debut of the RSI Shooting lab that BJ just purchased so hopefully we will have some good info for everyone.

Take it easy
Steve

Re: New Range opening up

Steve,
Sounds great. I'm here in KS about 45 miles NW of Wichita. Used to live in Newcastle, OK.
Will this range be open for other shooters?
I'm assuming steel targets, right? paper also?
Thanks!

It's just a private range, but if your ever down here and want to shoot let Lerch and I know.

Re: New Range opening up

It isn't my 7stw, it is the guy who owns the land the range is on. But yes it does have a break on it. I will have some pics of the gun after this weekend.

No, I don't think this is going to be a public range. He just wanted to set up some long range targets and get into this particular sport.

Take it easy

Re: New Range opening up

Understood. It is easier to keep it private. Maybe keep us posted when you guys are going to get together to shoot from time to time and maybe I can slip down. That is, if you will shoot with a guy that uses those funny specialty handguns [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
My days off are usually Friday & Saturday. I hope to make it down some time.

Re: New Range opening up

Lerch,

I was very impressed with the performance of the 162gr A-Max on lopes, yotes and paper when fired from my 7STW.

I was loading 80gr of Retumbo above a Fed 215M primer. Rem cases were fully preped. This is not a max load but the chronographed velocity of 3,075 was plenty.

Lope & Yote
