i just recently joined the site. i am jghoghunter's shooting partner. i have the 300 wsm and made the 2217 yard shot. last year shot one at 1733, found guts but nu p-dog . like jg said shooting big guns (30s), with no recoil is a lot of fun. we shoot the groundhog matches here in pa.when we can,but it's not like the real thing. jg will soon post an in depth description of the trip, the guns (with pics), the shots, the kills, the dead bucket, the funny crap, and all the ball breaking that goes along with it. look for it soon. if someone would explain how to post pics, i'll show what i got. any question be nice and ask.

thanks joel. that's my 12yr old daughter. she shot the 1056yarder. i was just as happy about her kill as she was. she shot her first ground hog when she was 8yr old. she and jg's future wife made their 1000yrd shots at the same spot. i had to build the new scope mount system to get anything past 1850yrds. not enough moa in the scope alone.

Yes that is an unusual PD gun. A nice thing about PD shooting is, anything goes. I've been stepping up my reloading to return to SD this June hopefully. I plan to use the standard 223,204, & 22-250.
