Re: Bustin\' Rocks

Always nice to shoot some rocks every now and then. Where I live we have them all over the place. Where I go bear/coyote hunting there all over as well. The rocks around here get beat up pretty good by me out to 800 yards. I"ll always have my dad spot for me or a buddy. Lay down, flip the bi pod down, and shoot! No better way to practice. Learn to dope the wind is the hardest part, once you can nail rocks pretty much dead center, you know you can cleanly harvest a deer at that range under that same condition. Of course practice and more practice at long range counts and nothing is a substitute for practice.

Re: Bustin\' Rocks

Thanks Rem. We both knew the wind was the hardest to dope. Just a light breeze was drifting his 140gr AB's over. My 225 AB's bucked the wind quite well - I tried to tell him it was my experience but he knew better! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] -- Don

Good times, good memories... awesome! Remington 25-06 is right on, I'm always thinking... if it was a deer the boy would have taken it or would have had missed, or some thinking of that nature. Like he said:

Thank you all for sharing, I just enjoy reading about those simple but fun filled events.
Good Shooting!

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
