HI guys, I had a chance to get out Sat. P.M. with a VHA Member buddy of mine, he took me to a place of his called the SWAMP. We killed 2 short range groundhogs with my AI, and then a crow size varmint lit on yonder fence post.... We ranged it and came up short(no reading) so I did a series of short ranging and got close... I figured it was 900 yards... we had a quartering wind coming from behind right to left. So I click up the leupy/ premier 18-40X50 side focus the appropriate clicks and hold off 2.5 feet to the right... center the elevation line on the critter and touch the trigger.... about the time I was going to say where did the bullet strike.... I see the feathered varmint explode backwards off the fencepost.. 1 shot 1 kill.... A little bit of shooting skill and a whole lotta luck!!! It was a great day!!!! As prior to this my longest kill with the 243AI was 420 yards. We walked out and ranged back did it 2 times and came up with 880-885 yards. I was awestruck!!!!
