Your post is very gracious-Thank You!
Shooting from your vehicle at those distances is pretty impressive.
I know I have been privileged to have access to open areas, and have the time to experiment.
The 6BR is a nice cartridge.
I am glad you have not allowed physical limitations to keep you from shooting.

The area is so built up compared what it was like years gone by and I was alot younger and could get around which I can not do now due to a disability. I have a permit to hunt from a vehicle so I have my window set up for a sort of plat form where I have sand bags and I can position my self to where I can shoot. around here a 500 yard shot is long. Reading so many of your articles I got into pistol shooting my favorite being my 6BR 16.25 Ott 1" diameter Barrel on an Encore frame with a very light trigger and a 6-18 Mach 2 Leupold rifle scope. With this setup I have shot many Ground Hogs the longest shot being in the neighborhood of 550 yards. Your articles give me a sense of being there with you. Keep writing those articles so people like me can enjoy your sport through your articles. Thanks so much Lou
