I place the target at 100yds. If you find you aren't real good at bore siting start with target at 50yds. you can always use a larger paper!You will be suprised at how good you can get at this with a bit of practice. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Yes it was and I hear there have been some rumblings about the shot on other chat boards so I want to say that does not happen every day. The rifle certainly has the potential to make that shot repeatably but with the variations involved at those ranges, this could well be a once in a lifetime shot.

I will do my best to make sure that is not the case but I fully admit to the level of luck involved in such a shot. Just for those that want to make a bigger deal out of this shot then it should be and feel the need to call it a fluke.

Back to the point at hand, 14x is plenty for shooting rock chucks at 1000 yards with a quality scope. Big game is certainly not a problem with this powder level in a quality scope.

Re: Have some questions.........

Great, do you guys have any kits you would suggest getting?

Also, how long does it take to get the hang of reloading?
