Re: What can you hit on demand???
If I hit the 12" target with the first round at 800 yards will I earn the $1000.00? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I belive I could hit a 12" target at 700 yards from a cold bore. PROVIDED it was not -10 out there. I am 100% sure I can hit that at 800 yards 90+% of the time on a first round.
In a situation with 10 MPH winds or under with a bi-pod, and my day pack under the rear, using my most trusted rifle and load, I would attemt that with $1000 USD on the line. I am not trying to be arrogant or cocky here. I spend a great deal of my time doing just that. Often times I go out with a 10" target, set up at 300 yards and fire once. Set up at 400 yards and fire once. all the way out to 1K. When I can no longer hit my 10" target, thats where I draw the line for my big game hunting range. I am not talking about my test loads or experamental stuff. I do alot of that and dont always hit the mark. I am talking about my best and most trusted load.
The rifle in question is a 13# 308 w/24" tube and 11.25 of twist. Scope is a mark4 10X. I know this rifle better than my own dear wife.
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.
