Re: "Punishing Steel At 1 Mile"

Mark,

Another great video!

May I be a "kind" critic?

@ about 2:15 & 2:31 - Look closely at the primers????

Video quality clearly shows crispness of turret clicks @ ~ 3:23

Your closing comments indicated dialing in on center of target. It would be nifty to hear what the dial changes were and when they were made.

It would also be nifty to get Dale back out there and get the bipod feet off of the mat in on the dirt. It would be a great data point.

Thanks for your efforts. You've brought things up a notch or two.

Roy, glad you enjoyed the film.

Constructive criticism is always welcome and you are correct. I should of
included his final adjustments for elevation and drift. My bad. Sometimes when
cutting the film, important details are at times forgotten.

I'll mention to Dale about placing his bi-pod on the dirt. However,
he didn't do too bad going 15 out of 20 with his rifle being on the mat.

Regards.

Mark

Hi Derek,

I'm not sure who built Dale's stick. I'll see if I can get him to chime in on the thread.
He can answer any questions about it.

Re: "Punishing Steel At 1 Mile"

I like that the shooter mentioned that brass is hard to come by. Lots of posts on this and other forums where guys are making their minds up to build a SAUM. I tend to chime in and caution them on brass availability. The concept was great but those SAUMs did not hit the market with great success unfortunately.

May want to relay to your shooter that Natchez has nosler 7saum brass in stock:
