Long range Crow

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

Re: Long range Crow

I love shooting crows. Kinda hard this time of year with all of the leaves still on the trees. Crows are some pecan stealin' m'fer's. I think they steal them for spite or the thrill of it because I've seen them drop them and come back for more.

Re: Long range Crow

Ah, yes, Crows, ravens and magpies. I use a couple of bags of cheap dog food set out at about 200 yds from the house with a good view from my upstairs window and then let the fun begin. Lots of "giggle factor" when you can see a 39 gr, 20 cal blitz king connect with a good visual of the impact through the scope.

Re: Long range Crow

I bet some V-max's would be fun on those nasty old crows
