First LR gun

Well i have been shooting for a long time now and me and a friend decided we would save up to build a long range rifle. His gun is more for target shooting, but i wanted mine to double as target/hunting rifle. We decided to stay with the short action so we chose .300 WSM. Great shooting rifle from what i can tell, below is my target from the range so im sure with some more practice ill bring those in a bit. I bought everything separate and had Predator Custom (Knoxville,Tn) build the barrel and assemble the final product. Here is the specs:

Bell and Carlson Tactical Medalist Tan Web
Weaver 20 MOA base
Weaver Tactical Rings
Caldwell Bi-pod
Leupold VX III 4.5-14X40 w/target turrets
26 inch 1:10 twist Predator Custom Barrel
Predator Custom Hybrid Crown

Re: First LR gun

Nice rifle and good groups. Try controlling your breathing when you shoot. That group shows that you still have air in your lungs and that's what causes that kind of groups. Get that under control and I see you shooting one hole groups.

1. Breath in and out twice
2. On second, let air out all the way, hold for 4-5 secs then shoot.
3. Practice this and see your groups get smaller.
