Thank you all! Now that I got that first long shot out of the way I'll do some video taping this spring and share it.

I shot it with a 270 win using 57gr of 4831SC and a 140gr nosler BT.

No major Mods to the gun. It's an older Sendero that has been bedded, re-crowned, lugs lapped, extractor changed, and trigger changed. I had all that done because it came from the factory in somewhat sad condition. I have a Leupold VX-II 6-18AO on it. If your going to spend $500 on a scope get one with side focus.

I don't have the experience these other guys have, but I think with enough practice using what you have, you can make it work.
