    Guys,
    Most all of us have a couple of smoker groups hanging on the shop/reloading room wall. I was interested in the gun details and accuracy levels of some of the other members. I have posted my best big gun group. It is 338 Edge, 300 gr SMK @ 2921 fps, shot at 300 yards. It was a customers gun and I was lucky enough to have him there during initial test firing. Hope to see performance levels of other members.

    After looking a few of the groups already posted I believe I'll just keep my groups to myself!!

    Fine shooting... and good accuracy all around.

    (A crow... shot in the head... at 870 meters!! YEOW fine shooting.)

    Reminds me of a movie I saw Burt Lancaster in! He shot at this outlaw at about 1000 yds. with a Sharps; cut 'em smooth outa the saddle! His buddy says...."nice shot"! Burt says..."I's shootin at the horse"!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Crow Mag,
    Nice 1000 yard work. What does your rifle weigh? what is the Yogi muzzle velocity?

    This is certainly not a "group" to brag to, so I humbly submit that my best two groups are a .068 3-shot group at 100 yds from a bench, the other a 2.55 from 650 yds off a bipod. Both were shot with a Cooper 22-250 and 52 gr JLK LD bullets.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Is this the movie?

    Back on topic

    I've been thinking about trying to get the tqrgets from the F-Class shoots. My last match I shot a 200-17X at 600 with my 308... I'm thinking that's 17 of 20 easily inside 6" at 600 yards--- coulda been a lot smaller but I didn't fetch the target face.

    Mine are pretty ho-hum compared with many here, but my rifle is a lightweight hunting rifle with factory barrel/stock/bedding, etc. Anyway, here are a couple of my better ones:

    Both from 400 yds resting over the hood of my TB. The first is 2 3/4" the second is 2 1/2". The gong is one foot square.

    Dave,

    I shot my first F-Class match with Michael E. this summer, quite a lot of fun it was too.

    If you count the single sighter I fired, I scored 200-17X at 600 yards, really it was 200-16X though, as the sighter don't count, so you have me beat... and I was using the 30/338 Lapua Imp.

    Michael, how come your F-Class score wasn't in there too?

    Fired 3 shots in .020" at 100 yards once.

    Fired 3 into .150" at 300, 1.15" at 400 and .960" at 500 yards back to back one day getting drop dope.

    Fired 3 in 15.5" at 1515 yards.... once, a hair high POI though.

    Rifle's 27 lbs., usually fired prone off my pack.
