    Went on my first long range p-dog trip of the season. Managed to set a couple of personal records with two rifles this morning. I am a real happy camper about now.

    Photo One is a 6.5x284 Savage Predator Max I topped off with a 6.5-20 Zeiss scope and a 20 MOA rail. I am shooting a 140 Berger VLD with 51.5 grains of H-4831 SC. Rifle number 2 is a Remington that was done over in 6mmBR by the folks at Krieger Barrels with a 1-8 twist. I am shooting a 107 SMK over Varget. The scope is a Nightforce 5.5-22 with a 20 MOA rail. I think 1200 yards is about at the limits of the 6mmBR. I had to come up 40 MOA and change with a 200 yard zero.
