    I could not get ahold of Len so I will post this here I am sure he will relocate it to the video section. My website changing was not without it's setbacks. This is my dad's 1314 yard elk shot in 2010. Not to bad of a job if I do say so myself.

    Awesome shot!

    After the bull stopped rolling I see in the vid a rabbit or something ran straight down past him.

    Nice video and great shot.

    Around halfway of the bulls roll down the incline you will see him knock loose what looks like a piece of a log. That follows him down.

    Yes it was a big rock rolling past. Shot was made with a 300 SMK. I shot one the year prior at 1308 yards from the same spot, rock rest and rifle. Mine of course missed the log that dad's hung up in by 10 feet and went another 250 yards down the hill until he hung in some pines.

    Shawn, you guys said there was no wind at all, but did you end up making a spin drift/coriolis correction? I would estimate that there would have been about a full minute at that distance.

    The amounts were not enough to worry about, the full correction for both spin and coriolis would have been down 4" left 7". Spin drift varies from bullet to bullet but even more so based on twist and rifling profile. Coriolis is of course a by product of latitiude and heading, in this reguard coriolis can counter act the effects of spin drift to some degree in certain situations. Shooting the 338 Edge in our platform I don't get to excited about either until we get out a little futher than this shot was.
