Was it me this question was aimed at???
It was built by Tom Bryant (my Father) in Evanston, Wyoming (he calls his business "The Gun Guy"). 6x47 Lapua: Savage Model 12 action, 30" Lilja barrel, Shrewd muzzle brake, topped by Leupold VXII 6-18x40. 39 gr. H4350, 95 gr. Sierra MK, 3100 fps.
825 yds is the farthest I've done on game animals, pretty consistent with 1100 yard milk jugs though. I don't have much experience with Extreme Long Range stuff, but when the stars align it will get hits on the City's 3' x 3' one-mile gong. I usually have to click up 62-65 MOA from a 200 yard zero. My zero is at the dead bottom of my scope travel too, which helps I guess.
sure is fun!!
