With the lack of snow for snowmobiling, I have been out at my hunting shack clearing some spots for bait for next year. I went out last weekend and put up some steel at the first spot across from the shack.....1063 yards. I had a breeze from 11 o clock, held about two feet left and hit EXACTLY where I was aiming....6-6.5 X 47l WITH 105 vldS. I knew that this wasn't right. But since I was 15 miles from my range I just went with it. Next shot...dead center. I felt a pickup and held over about a foot....missed my first hit by about 3 inches. Waited a while, felt my first condition come back and put 3 more in the same splatter mark as the first. 3 1/2 inch group including the hold over. Hit the range on the way home and was off horozontaly by 1 1/2 min. Feeling cocky!!! Went out today and put out another steel at the next spot....1360 yards. Conditions.......HORIBLE. My brother was with me....took a shot at the 1063 steel....held at least 10 feet right....wind was 2-4 oclock from 15- 30 mph. Missed left by at least 5 feet..... held over and put two quickies on target. Again. 6-47L. My brother (7mm rem mag- 168 JLK's) holds way over and get a good solid hit. Gotta figure he was holding at least 12 feet. Next two were left. I took 3 with my 300 WBY match gun..(210 berger at 3280) and held about eight feet....two solid and one miss right. About this time we quit trying to read the wind. Now I swing over to the 1360 steel....That puts the wind at between 1 and 3 oclock...again 15 - 30 MPH. 8 shots no hits with my 300....only saw one impact....dead on for vert and about 4 feet left. I had origonaly dialed in 5 MOA right and was holding for the rest. Gotta figure I was holding at least 10 feet on top of the 5 MOA. Kinda disapointed....figured I could have read the wind better. I wish I had my NP-R1 retical and held MOA instaid of feet. Going to give it another shot tomarow when the light is better. Still going to be windy. Maybe pick up a trace or two.
