I know its not the long range some here are capable of but its a new world for me. After practicing quite a bit from a bipod and from my shooting sticks and working on good long range loads for my Savage .308. I finally got a good long range shot, went through the process and down went a crow at 455 lasered yards.
The way we were setup I was not expecting a shot that far so I was using shooting sticks, I personally wouldn't try a shot on big game from that distance from sticks but on a crow or groundhog I'm game.
The shot was on nearly zero incline, 455 yards, and I called a 5mph crosswind at 90* to the shot. I just checked my chart, dialed the scope and shot; and was psyched with the results.
A friend and I have been doing a fair amount of groundhog hunting this summer but most shots have been inside 250 yards so basically point blank for my .308 with the 110 V-Maxs.
We also got a couple groundhogs in the 2 hours we were out but none very far away and one at about 15feet
