    Cool. Must be nice to have your own supplier for long range targets. You may have to let him bust one now and then to keep the supply coming though.:)

    MT300RUM,
    That's one bad-a$$ rifle and a great shot on your part. Thanks for inspiring the rest of us. JohnnyK.

    the jp brake allows me to spot my own shots, wich with a 300 RUM pushing 208's at 3220 i'd say i like it alot, just don't ever forget to put your muffs on, i did that once and never again..

    Nice shot. Are those 208 Amax's living up to their advertised .648 BC?
