Re: Wisconsinites, 600 yard cold bore shoot.

I'm new to the long range accuracy thing and this forum. Ive never been to a cold bore shoot or any other range shoot. I would like to come and see what it is all about. Are spectators welcome? I live near Tomahawk on HY 8 so it would only be a couple of hours away.

I should be there, My buddy is going to come along. We will be shooting pistols if thats ok. We are going to try to trick a few yotes by Niellsville on friday night(almost full moon). Are people shooting of bi-pod and bags?
Luckylar, I would call Jim if you are interested. He is a nice guy and his shop contact info is on his website.

Luckylar, Yes spectators are welcome, The fox trackers have a heated clubhouse so if the weather turns you can watch from inside as well. If you do come and want to shot you are more than welcome to take a poke with one of my rifles. I zeroed them in today and things looked excellent. The little 260 rem shot a 2" 3 shot group on the 600 yard practice board today, but that really means nothing if the wind decides to blow on Saturday.

Matt, great I hope to see you there. We have snow now but it might be gone by Friday. The weather man is calling for 30-40 by mid-week.

The shoot station is an elevated platform with a heavy bench. Sandbags are there for everyone to use. some guys do shoot off of bipods. Them pistols will be great Matt, give the guys somthing to ogle. If you need to get a 600 yard zero before the shoot you could stop at my place on hwy 73 and shoot on my 600 yard range. Give me a pm and we can set up a time and directions if you want.

Guys who are comming, To best be preparred zero you gun at 600 yards. Print off a chart with your wind drift data, so you can use it as you prepare to shoot. You are not timed so if you take a few minutes to monitor the wind and dope it correctly, no one will get excited. This shoot like most around here is about shootin' guns and havin' fun. The target is at 600 yards but at about a 3-5 degree downhill angle.
