    Good job.

    I too cut my teeth in with a 243 winnie. I never shot it at a full 1K but did at 900 yards.

    And you won't be disappointed. The 6BR is extremely accurate.....but that isn't news to anyone. I had a custom 243 first, then switched to the 6BR. Everyone that shoots my 6BR for the first time just turns around with a smile on their face. Case in point, I let the owner of the company I work for shoot my BR this past week. He had never shot a custom rifle before. To make a long story short, he was busting 4" clays with ease at 300 for the first time...and was happy. :D

    I know that is no great feat, but I always enjoying watching "newbies" to the custom world shoot.
