Since Iíve always said I like to see pics with peopleís threads, I thought Iíd better practice what I preach. We took the Allen Magnums, a 270 AM and a 7mm AM out to do some playing today.
This is my truck before all of the ďstuffĒ starts coming out.
This is the 270 AM set up to do some chrono work and load comparisons. We were also testing a Farrell 20 moa base to make sure we could zero at 300 yards.
This is another shot of the 270 AM. We have 100 and 200 yards down the left and 300 yards just above and slightly to the right of the stop screen on the Oehler. There are rock bluffs at the head of the canyon that get us to 600 yards and if we go up on a slight ridge behind where the trucks are parked we can get over 900 yards into the upper rock bluffs. The neat thing about this spot is itís close to town and is private property. For the long stuff we have to drive farther but itís alllllll goooood!!!
This is just an overall shot of the trucks, shade, chrono etc.
This is a remote, timed shot of some poor lost soul getting ready to send some 7mm slugs down range.
This is a shot of the AMís. 7mm AM on the left and 270 AM on the right. The 7mm just got a new barrel and Iím doing the break in today. The 270 AM just came back with a new McMillan hunter stock. Both are Kirby creations.
Iíve been asked about the recoil of the AMís and if interested, this is a small video clip of the 7mm AM and itís recoil.

All in all the day went quite well. Nothing too serious, just some scope/base and load testing and comparison and a barrel break in. Just thought it might be of interest to some as itís been kinda quiet around here lately. Don't pay any attention to the audio, it was my buddy's first time using my camera.
