Thanks for the pics Lerch. Those 169.5's look to blow em up pretty well. The 210 out of the Rum really worked that PD over!! Good shooting guys!!
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: 270 Allen Mags @ Dog Town

Great pics Steve! Thanks for posting them.

Looks like the 270 AMs do a number on anything you point them at. Hope your setup for deer works out and you get some long range shots on deer just like the PDs.

Don't worry about the pics. This is a hunting forum isn't it?

How long ago would it have been that you would have told someone they were crazy if they told you that youd be saying 700 yard shots on something that small was a little too easy? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

You sure there were two of you shooting? I only see one guy having all of the fun. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Good luck on your upcoming hunt up north. Take lots of pictures.

Yea, he is kind of a @$$ for not ever pointing the camera in my direction [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

But then again I guess I did get the long shot of the day, as usual [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

It is amazing how quickly you can improve in this sport. Believe it or not in mid March of this year me and BJ went out to shot on targets and the extreme long range of 300yds. This was the first time me or him had really sat down and practiced at any extended ranges.

The next weekend we set up a gong at 515yds and all of the guys shooting with us said no one would hit it all day long. I hit it on the first shot and later went on to shot a 1.75" 3 shot group at 500yds.

So 6 months after this we have been shooting pdogs at over 1000 yds and I ready to try for 1500 and 2000yds. Sure is a hell of a lot of fun [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 270 Allen Mags @ Dog Town

Dang you guy's are getting me worked up down here. Since seeing those pic's I can hardly wait to bust some hogs up seriously. With the hide those things have, they will definately let you know when you make contact. Heck those 115gr Partitions sound like a Nolan ryan fastball hitting a wet mit. I bet those 169's will sound like a melon opening up. LOL

Thanks for sharing the pic's.
