I get to drive through & work around the Sidney area quite a bit in my travels. It is very beautiful country, great shot Len, I particularly like the thread title.

    Thanks for the pics of the long range shooting on Sunday Len. I will show them to Dave. I am going to play with the long range stuff seriously in the next year. My custom gun that is coming should be just the ticket for it. Look forward to hunting with you again in the future.

For my first shot I held 3 minutes of wind compensation (about 32 inches) to the right. That wasn't enough. If you look carefully you can see that bullet hole just off to the left in that shadow. Then I held one more minute of wind, another 10 inches or so and fired the 2 shots to the right. The 3 shot group is about 6 inches low. I need to validate my trajectory out that far. Or more likely simply re-check my 100 yard zero, which I did not do when I arrived in MT.
    Len, any pics of that sandstone from the shooting location?
