2300 Yds. A Very Humbling Experience.

I was out a few days back with some buds. We tried out luck at 2300 yds.
For me, not too good. 1 out of 30. But, I did learn a few things and look
forward to the next challenge at this distance.

Re: 2300 Yds. A Very Humbling Experience.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for taking time to view and the positive words. It was a good learning
experience despite my poor marksmenship.

Just picking up the 2'x3' silhouette (which had an orange 8" square centered) at that distance was a challenge. I kept my NF scope on 17-18 power to deal
with the mirage.

Wind was very easy so that was in our favor. Still new to shooting anything from a mile on out. Plus I just started to reload for my .338 a few months back.
Still tweaking with the loads.

Best.

Mark

Get those bipod feet off of the mat and onto the ground.!!!! Or Broz is gonna come down there and hutch.

What camera/lens combination were used. Quite impressive. Great editing.

The black rig the fella in the red Tee shirt was shooting has some bodashious barrel whip, or it was the bipod feet sinking into the shooting mat??

Nice work all the way around.

Cameras:
1 Go Pro Hero 2
2 Panasonic HD Handy Cams: HDC-SD80 (42X Zoom) / HDC-SD60 (35X Zoom)
1 Panasonic HPX-170

Go Pro used for mobile shots
1 Handy Cam is used for my Target Camera Setup which is framed ECU on the target only
The second Handy Cam was framed MS on the target and area around it to
show the misses.
The HPX-170 was POV/OTS from the shooter, CU and ECU of the shooter and any LS for surrounding topography.

I use Premiere Pro CS5 as my editing suite.

I'm the shooter in the Red T-Shirt. My rifle is a .338 Lapua Magnum. Yes, it does have a kick even with the break. I do have a lock on my bi-pod. And the reason it's not on the dirt is because of the serious amount of gas emitted side to side from the break. I have another packing blanket positioned to deal with that. In addition, there is a bubble on my NF Scope which I check each time to make sure my rifle is level horizontally before each round is fired.

If you're interested, here's a link that has some pics of my target cam setup as well. It sends a video signal from the transmitter to the receiver back 2300 yds. The image is projected on my monitor in real time. No delay. Great for seeing exactly where your hits land on the steel.

Thanks for taking time to view and your kind words.
