    Here is a video from earlier this spring when I tested my 338LM at long range on ice.
    The wind was pretty bad, average at 9 m/sek, and it made my camera shake pretty bad. Used a 300 grs SMK and the gun is a custom build Rem 700 with LW barrel and AICS 1.5. Scope used is a Millett 5-25x56 LRS-1. Filmed at the west coast of Norway.

    That's damn good shooting! When you centered the camera on close focus I guessed exactly what your target would be! Your load is working! Don't mess with it!

    HOLD HARD & STAY CENTER!

    At a rough guess it looked to me like the first four shots were all within probably 30cm of one another which at that range is certainly outstanding!

    Quite the achievement.gun)

    Thanks guys.
    I am pretty happy with this rifle, and it shoots well no matter what load I'm using. I have purchased a IOR Terminator 12-52x56 and it is the best longrange scope I have ever had. Will try to shoot some groups at 2200 meters with during the summer.

    Do us a favor and give us a good review on that scope when you get it. I'd hate to be the only guy around here convincing others they are worth the price.:D
