    I have been taking friends and family out shooting over the summer. Thought I would share with you guys some of the fun we have been having. And a view from the office of my real job.

    The Gap 7wsm still blows me away just how good it shoots. My dad was even shooting it left handed. Hoping my new Bighorn action 7saum AI can hang with it. The 50 BMG is a Christensen arms with a McMillan action, that a friend gave me with 30 rounds to get the DOPE for him. He just wants to say he has a gun that can shoot a mile. Still working on the mile thing. They are fun to shoot about twice. I hate shooing it. We where getting a kick out of watching everyone shoot it. SO we end up getting it to 1000 yards. We did manage to hit the plate a few times.
    It was cool to see the flight time difference between the .308 & 7mm on the doubles shot. The .308 wouldn't even take the paint off the target. He was shooting old military ammo though. Make sure you at least watch it in 720p or better.
    ENJOY!!!

    I'd really like to watch this video but it won't play for one reason or another. Is there a You Tube address that I can go directly to?

    I had no problem watching the video. I just clicked on the youtube logo in the bottom right corner of the embedded video and it opened it for me in a new page. The power of the 50 cal hitting the plates at 1k is unbelievable compared to the 7mm.

    Skyking were you guys shooting out west of Utah lake?
