Re: New Rifle

Thanks, I'm really enjoying the rifle, it's actually my first bolt action as i have two AR's (. 223 and
308). I am learning a lot with with this magnum but I am having lots of fun in doing so.

Re: New Rifle

I want to give a little update on how far I have come since starting. I recently upgraded my scope to a Nightforce and added a muzzle brake to help with spotting my shots. I have learned through lots of reading and asking that setup is one important factor. Today was a little milestone for me as I was finally able to take my 300 win mag out to 600yds. I started with targets set up at 200, 300, and 400 yards for checking my drop data that I had gathered and entered in my ballistics program (Shooter). I shot at each yardage NOT adjusting for wind as I didn't want to mess with that aspect yet. After my shots I went down and checked and these are what I had for shots. I went back and continued out to 500 and 600 yards (adjusting for wind) on the steel silhouette that they had and was able to make first round hits multiple times (not sure on size but small maybe 14" tall). Being able to extend to these ranges while not extreme is a great feeling knowing that when you put together everything that you have learned and make those shots makes a for a great day.
