    Guys I am a bodybuilder and am friends with one of the greats in the pro levels named Branch Warren. I became friends with him last year and it turns out he loves to hunt too. We go hog hunting with knives and dogs most of the time but I finally got him hooked on some long range hunting. He is a Muscular Development(magazine) super star and wanted to put our shooting into the magazine and online. Anyways here is Branch shooting at 500 and 1000. Im shooting my 7WSM at a mile. Of course they edited a lot out that should not have been but that is them not knowing what the heck they are doing. Also I was explaining bullet drop to a bunch of meat heads so I kept it as simple as possible. My girlfriend got a 1st round hit at 1000 yards with her 22-250 Ackley also.... Enjoy!!

    Haha tell me about it! Not easy to find pants that fit when your waist is 32" and quads are 28". I can't even wear a dress shirt because my lats are so wide. I am doing a 2000 yard attempt right before I leave for Africa in mid august. I will post that as well.

    It looks like you are putting those empty protein powder jugs to good use!

    Yes I always keep those to shoot. They make a good show when you pop one at 1000+ yards. I want to try and bust one at 1500 this weekend!

    Nice video, thanks for sharing.
    The discipline that keeps you pumped is the same discipline that makes you a good shooter.gun)
    Good luck in your trip to Africa, will be waiting to see lots of pics.

    Great video. I've always been a fan of Branch. That was some great shooting. That was really the first time my two hobbies ever crossed over for me. Cool.

    Tank,

    I hit on ethics of long range hunting about only shooting in the field as far as you have done in practice so there is no doubt that you can make a clean one shot kill but of course they edited that out... Again I was trying to tell meat heads how to sling lead!!
