If yall would like I will let you know when we go and see if he cares if I bring some more shooters. I love MS but dang it is hard to find somewhere to shoot extreme ranges especially in the lower part of the state.
Eddybo...... I sure would like to watch you shoot a mile.
I don't think my 300 Win. Mag. would have enough butt to reach out that far and keep doing it.:( Maybe one shot now and then, but not over and over. I would think it would put a 338 through it's paces to keep it up. I am shooting a 220 SMK at 2800 fps at 1000 yds with pretty good luck ;). The thought of a mile just does something to my brain if you know what I mean.:eek: If it is alright with your bud, I would really like to see the 1600 yd shot if I can make that day.
Keep the lead flying in wright direction boys. Till next time.............. Jim
