    hey guys, I'm finally figuring out this long range stuff. this guy finally came out after a long wait, i ranged and dialed, and smoked him on the first shot of the morning. video isn't great, but it's hard to see that far away.

    YouTube - 534yds

    YouTube - Rock Chucks Again

    got some very very close misses at 850-1000, but just couldn't quite close the deal. need to work on my drops a little more, and then i'll be good to go.

    Thanks, I realize it's not very far compared to what a lot of guys do on here, but it's my first attempt at long range.

    I just got my 300 RUM back from the smith, and this was it's maiden voyage, so far so good.
    I just can't believe what the 185gr bergers do to those things. I thought they would zip right through, but I was way off.

    i did shoot a coyote at 350yds the next morning, and blew about a 2" hole out the other side of him, so they were not nearly as explosive on a little bit bigger animal.

    does anyone know what kind of cameras people use to film shooting videos? something that has a little better range/ picture quality at longer ranges?

    I use a cheap 4x spotting scope at the end of my 6x $180 camera. Maybe if you tried that you would have a better picture. But I think yours looks pretty good for being over 500 yards.

    excellent shot! I think it is pretty cool to see the path of the bullet as it impacts.
