200 Grain Wildcats help with the wind a tad

Richard sure developed a good pd bullet:eek:

    Thanks Guys!
    It is a systems approach.
    Tannel did the original action work and Kirby did all the current, barrel, stock, bedding, and reinforcement work. Kirby also modified the Redding in-line dies and helped me choose the Dakota cartridge.

    Oh no son. U guys ain't getting away that easy. I need a blow by blow description on the shot. Did the Wildcat flip him at that range? What did he do after the shot? Was the big Leupy on top? How much windage did u crank in? C'mon, pony up Bobalouie.

    Steve,
    Eric (ewallace) is going to have to post to tell you (blow-by-blow) how far it flipped him in the air. Recoil moved me out of the sight picture and I do not see a full FOV when shooting the Dakota, especially with a light hold.
    Since I hit him in the head, there wasn't a lot of wiggling after he hit the ground.
    I think it was 48 MOA vertically and 5 to 5.25 MOA windage-I don't have the rig with me at the moment to reconfirm. I didn't re-zero after the shot.

    I think that when Sebastian comes this summer to shoot praire dogs after the supershoot he is going to be in total awe of what your doing Ernie. I know I am.
    I'm still hoping to break 1500 yds this summer and thats with a .300 RUM. Do you know how bad you make me feel after you do that with one of your pistols. :-)

    I am looking forward to meeting Seb and his wife (and hopefully you as well).
    Not trying to make anyone feel bad.
    Think of it this way, if it can be done with a SP, you know you can do it with a rifle. Just a matter of time in the town, decent conditions, and luck.
