    Was out today shooting at 600 yards ( I know it's not 1000 but long range for me )
    Remington 700 SPS 1 in12 20" barrel
    Timney trigger
    Load
    42.7 varget
    Lapua brass
    CcI primer
    175 Berger
    2570 FPS
    15 shots all on target big target is 8" small one is 4"

    Now I need to find a longer range to shoot at :D

    Was it your first time shot at 600 yards?

    The shot groups looked good.

    Fist time @ 600 had wore out the steel a 400 yards :D

    still working on my technique trigger , breathing and hold , it's a stock Remington with a HS stock and timney trigger and a Zeiss HD 5x25-50 with a 20 MOA rail .

    I will have it out to 1000 before hunting season :Dgun) it's half the powder charge that I load in my 300 ultra so with the 308 I shoot it twice as much ;)
