    I posted this video in the long range hunting and shooting, too. But, it actually belongs in this forum. We are having extremely good results with the Sendero's.

    Very nice shooting. I am sure you are very happy with that. Congrats!! That's awesome!

    Oh wait!!! Didn't you get the memo?? Your RUM has freebore. There is a member on here that posts every chance he gets how those soft jacketed bullets "don't shoot worth a crap" in free bore rifles. Boy am I glad you didn't read that. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    All jokes aside, nice job. Which 230's, the OTM's or Targets? The BC of both is great and turns a big 30 into a spanking machine as you just proved.

    Thanks broz,

    They are the target. The senderos do shoot good, this one is one of the better ones. I just don't have much trouble with getting them to shoot.

    Yeah, same here. I can't think of one yet that I have owned that didn't shoot very well with only a little work to it. Pretty darn impressive for a factory rifle.

    Judging from what I seen last season from the 215's and assuming the 230 Targets have a similar void in the nose, I would not have any concerns about them on game either. But a few early season antelope would tell for sure before one goes for the elk.

    Great shooting even though I could not for the life of me see the impacts at the 1600 yard target. I could definately hear the report back but man I could not find the impacts.

    Shooting that well at 1100 and over 2000 I am positive that what you were saying at 1600 was very true. That is a very nice shooting rifle. Some great reloading also. Thanks for the video.

    I am going to try and play with weather conditions a little. With the hot days and little rain will help out a lot. I also will find a perfect flat face rock. Thanks.

    The search for that flat face rock or wall to check drops at ELR. This is more important in dialing in a program than many can imagine.

    Broz,
    I agree.


    I also need to correct myself. I need the hot days without these afternoon showers.

    I should have shot but I am a little worried me may end up with a big change in weather one day soon. So I went and cut a load of firewood.

    How did thing end up are you shooting your +p?

    no worries here I just could not see the hit. ELR is a totally different ball game. Keep up the great shooting and videos. they are a joy to watch.

    I need to spend little more time studying which cmera is a good one to use for little money and how to edit it so that I can make videos of my play days killing rocks. All I have is a little sony handy cam. it works ok but is hard to see targets behond 1000.

    Good quality and cheap are really tough to come by. The cannon xha1's really are a good camera. Just watch for them on ebay the come down in price but new were $3500-4500

    Not as much as I should be. I have 4 rifles to get out of here before I can think about it real hard. Shawn is finishing up a custom die for it, so I will be tuning the brass a little soon. It shoots good, it has me pretty confident so far.
