1 mile with a handgun? Hahaha
That`s what I was thinking when Rouge hunter (also known as Mike40x on SP.com) and I we going to get together on Aug. 2nd this past weekend. Well Mike and His sonTyler showed up Sat. morning and we started putting up steel targets at 100, 500, 1000 yards and then a 24"x24" steel plate at One mile. To make a long story short, All 3 of us got hits on the one mile target using Mikes aweome 6.5-284 XP 100 handgun. It was so unreal to know that I was able to hit, on my 2nd shot, that distant target. Well I sure surpassed my personal record from June of 890 yards. That plate is so small at 1 mile that I could barely see it with the naked eye even painted bright Orange.
Hopefully Mike will post up his write up and pictures here as well as on SP.
If your new to long range pistol shooting as I am, you have to get out and shoot these unbelieveable distances. WAIT! Did I say unbelieveable? Ha Ha Ha I am a believer now!
Thanks Mike and Tyler for your help and instructions and the use of one very nice SP!
What a weekend!
Oh the scope on my Striker didn`t have enough elevation to get it out to a mile but I was able to get to 1000 yards with it using my .270win. barrel and 130gr. Hornady SP innerlocks.
and a little side note- I shot at the 500 Yard gong with my old Mosin Nagant m44 carbine with goof Ol` open sights and made it ring with the first shot out of the barrel. Using mil-surp round.
another personal record for me.
sorry the post is so long but I am just so danged excited!
