Just returned from a praire dog hunt in South Dakota

We had a great time 3 days of shooting rats in the dakotas. I have no idea of how many were shot but we have confirmed kills from right in front of the truck to 2218 yds. Yes thats 2218 YARDS we confirmed it with a gps. We also killed a 5 gallon bucket at 2992 yds that was confirmed with a gps. We didn't get no kills at 3k but we did find one of my 210 bergers laying just off of the mound. This was the first chance I got to stretch out my new gun and I was extremely happy.

I haven't done anything with the pics yet. When we made our way over to the 3k and were looking around we found where the first shot had landed and also found one of the 210 bergers laying about 20" from where it hit, must not have much left. The book says it has about 350 ft/lbs left.
The gun that has the 2200 confirmed is a 45lb bench gun in 300 wsm and mine is a 50+lb bench in 300 wtby imp. He shoots 190 bergers with a copy of harbor engineering mount that he designed and had built. Mine has a Ivey Designs mount that I read about here in this website (thanks guys). Both guns have Nightforce 12-42 br on them.
My wife to be killed at least 2 @ 1056yds with mine and his daughter killed one for sure @1056yds with his. These guns are fun to shoot. Big calibers and no recoil you can't beat it and to be able to shoot those distances and hit what your shooting at is great. Any questions please ask.

That's funny, I read it the same way as you did.
