Thanks!

    Re: Nosler 175 LR accubond

    Well I have gotten in some hunting. Between me and my customers we have shot deer at 120yds, 210yds, 355yds, and 1066yds. All the deer have dropped in there tracks. Yesterday I was invited down to South Carolina by one of my good customers to do some L R. We set up on my Kubota rtv and in 10 minutes we has a deer out in the lane. I ranged it at 1066yds. Loaded all the info in my app. the Applied Ballistics program gave me a dial up of 23.6 moa. Dialed up and waited for her to turn broadside. She did and I pulled the trigger. BANG FLOP!!!!. I watched her fall. Not even a leg kick. We watched her just to make sure she didn't get up. I have to say a big THANKS to my friend Chris Scott for the invite. After the year I have had this was a big lift for me. I am still in disbelieve that I was able make this shot. Dan

    First 3 shots out of the STW and zero load development. Berger 180's shoot 3/4" at 200, this LR group is just under .600" at 200 yards.
    Hell ya

    Great results and shooting! I have a 7RUM waiting to try the 175s but probably will not get to them until this spring. Thanks for the posts.

    Thanks for sharing. I've had excellent accuracy with the 210 ALRs as well. Consistent 1/2 to sub 1/2 MOA out of a factory 300WM Sendero bedded in a McMillan stock. Every bit as accurate as the 208 Amax. I only had to adjust .5 grain to match the velocity.

    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.
