    shot my furthest dog this morning, twice!
    i went out this morning by some feilds i know got some pictures of some elk and turkey's, went down the road a mile or so and seen a dog way out there, about 850 yards out there. i looked at my data and watched him, he started to come closer to a fence in between us and then walked a long it at 700 or so yards. i layed down took a shot hit im back, he yelped and then ran about 50 yards, i then shot again and dropped him. i went out to check him out and the shot was about 725 yards. thats my personal best so far. befor this one it was by holding over at 546 this winter.

    I shot him with my 243 ackley pushing 95 grn bergers at 3150. The day before I had taken that barrel off of my savage short action and put it on a long action that I will be building my 6-284 as soon as the barrel comes. This gun is set up for longer shots with a 25 now base and a viper pst on top. The range finder was a newcon 2200 yard model that my buddy will be writing a review on along with I think a 3500 yard model. That is the first animal this barrel and bullet setup has killed, though I have shot it at .5 now to 900 yards before on the old action, just never taken it out I guess

    here are the pics the second one shows the road i was on in the back ground the third, look at where the rangefinder is measuring and add to it for the difference.
