    Good shooting, but another 40 yards and those 168's wouldn't have made it. Everybody knows they don't make it to 1000 yards.:D

    :DI hear a challenge!!!gun)

    Bump it out to 1010 yds just to prove him wrong hahah

    Great shooting I have the same rig with a 6-24 and same exact load but haven't stretched the barrel out that far. 600yds is as far as ive shot with it but amazing results.

    Great shooting! NO damn good shooting. I am shooting simular ranges and I shoot cold bore on different days to ensure varying condition . I shoot a shot wait about a hour for about 3 shots , come back next weekend do it again the ranges have been 1058 ,1061 and 1150 as for now I am 7 out of 8 on a 20 inch gong . it is my way of preparing for that first shot in a hunting situation.

    Very good shooting indeed ! Especially when you consider that the 168 SMK does not fly well at that range for many people, maybe your MV is higher than some. Is this a 26" tube? Could be the 168 needs to be pushed a little harder. My Rem sure likes the 168BT I just found out, but I don't know how it will do at long range yet.
    Regardless, good shooting and I appreciate the info.
