Dusted off the old Lapua

I hadnt shot my 338 Lapua in about a year but I had recently upgraded the trigger from a Timney to a Jewell. So I went out the other day and got it on steel at 1150 they set out to fill a couple doe tags. I was hoping for a longer shot but it was almost dark so I settled on this pair of does at 620 yards. they each got a 300SMK throught the shoulders. They were about 20 yards apart but I drug them together for the shot... nothing too exciting but it was kinda fun to go knock a couple down

I caught those pics on FB. A pair @ 620 isn't too chabby We're still a week out...
