    I guess I don't understand......

    Do you want me to take some pictures of my targets from over 500 yards away??

    Do you want to see WHAT KIND of targets we are shooting at at 500 yards distance?


    Do you you want to see the RESULTS of our LR targets AFTER we shoot them at LR?

    Here is one of my better ones at 1,000 yds. Three 5 shot groups with the scores & group sizes in lower right of target. Shot with my 6mm Norma BR. with 105 gr. Berger VLD Hunting bullets. Rifle is a Savage 12 duel port action with a Vortex 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope with a Vortex Custom Turret.

    Not to bad for a hunting rifle.

    PS: This is the first time I took 3 shots testing the custom turret at 400 yds. to see if I hit the paper.

    Here are three groups I had to photograph. # 1 is three shots at 1016 yards. Two shots in the same hole. I've shot groups like this at 100 yards :D. # 2 is shot at 1016, same rifle, same plate, next morning. #3 is shot at 1250. The case is 2.5".
    Sometimes, the wind blows our way :D. I was testing loads. I think the load was workin'!
