    I woke up this morning and went to the gym for some cardio. When I was finished it was overcast and very little wind. I decided I would go to the range for some Father's Day practice. My range is a dirt road around the farm. I shot at 1300, 1400, 1500, and 1600. By the time I got to 1600 the sun was coming out and the mirage was horrible. Here are some pics. First pic is 1300 (second shot), next 1400 low and right first shot, second shot real close, 1500 was one shot, last pics pointing was 1600 missed down wind elevation was pretty close. Rifle is 338 edge running 300 OTM Berger @2820. This pic is the 1600. Steel plate is 24" square and black dot is 2.5 inches (I believe). Anyway I am pretty excited so I thought I would brag a little.

    Rotated 1600 near miss. Well I guess if you miss it won't put the picture in correct orientation

    That is one of the perks with my job. It is not right out my back door but, about a 20 min drive.
