    What bullet are you using and at what velocity?

    That was awesome even though you didnt have any hits. I am still going to have you edit my 1 mile black buck hunt!

    Hope to see some more of these videos up soon!

    I actually hit the stand at least once. It shows it at the end. I would have been more accurate, but I ran out of internal MOA in my scope, so I had to turn it down to 16x and hold over 4.5 mils. I plan on getting a 28" barrel and a 40moa base soon, plus a larger recoil lug and glass bedding. I know the rifle and load are capable of killing a deer at that far. I'm getting a lot of spin drift w/ the 210's but they are still supersonic at that far.

    Did you get a mile buck on footage yet?

    no not yet, my cousin keeps backing out on me so it won't be until the new year when we get a chance to go as it is a 6 hour drive out there. I will for sure send you the copy when I get it though.

    As of now my 7wsm is pushing the 168 Berger @3125 so I will be supersonic to 1900+ with that load. It is holding around 6-7" at 1000 with an occasional sub 5" group. My best group is 3 shots @ 1000 that went 2.233" ctc.I have some Jlks coming and there bc is 735. Same weight and velocity so that should be interesting to shoot.

    2900 FPS with a short mag ?? Have you had them over a chronograpgh and then confirmed it with MOA adjustments at range.

    I shoot the 210 Bergers also, great bullet.

    yes, I have. chrono at 10 ft. 2900 fps low single digit deviances shot to shot. My barrel is a Shilen properly broke in, and chambered w/ a long leade, so I can run it hotter and still be safe. rest assured I'm not talking out of my @$$. :D

    Actually I am running Win brass. I asked David Tubb and that is what he told me to run in a 7WSM. I am honestly happy with it too. I run Norma in my 257 Wby and it feels a little softer than the Win in the die. I will see how many reloads I get with 70.7gr of H1000.

    Several of us are running 210 VLDs (Berger/JLK) over 2900 in 1K Br. Three of use are using MRP and several H4350 with F210s and either Norma or Win brass.

    with a 30" barrel, they can be run over 3000 also and BR accurate, however some guys also shoot them down to 2850.

    I'm using H4831SC, but the weird thing is that my barrel is only 24".
