    Interesting - you'll be advancing from 1 foot to 800-900yds in one week. I'm slow, it took me about 4 years to get that far. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    hi varment i'll be doing some practicing before i move out that far but i have made kills out to 400 that one being with a 243 shot a running hog at 180 yrds with a 270 this past aprl that one had a little luck invovled as i had run about 100yrds to head them off after my buddy had shot and killed one of them shot it offhand and hit in the spine about 8 inch ahead of the tail the opening it was crossing was about 20 ft wide and i could only lead it to the edge of the brush anyways i got me some 200gr accoubonds and h1000 and retoumbo for the 300 ultra and some 180 accoubonds for the 300wm when ever i get it back the gunsmith but its worth the wait he does first class work built me and my dads pistols when we use to shot matchs 38 supers and 45 acps.the mcmillion stock came in 2 weeks ago took 4 months so it shouldnt be much longer
