    Did a little shooting this weekend.
    Found some rocks around 24" x 24" out about 975 yards. Had around a 12 mph west wind, dialed in the dope and poof, clouds of white dust.
    I spotted a nice black bear about 1500 yards past the targets and he looked a little nervous:D
    The first photo shows the shot angle and the second shows the canyon I was shooting over.

    Also did some coyote calling and called in my first two coyotes.Wasn't able to seal the deal , yet but what a blast !! Just like " Buck Fever". I'm hooked for good.

    Beautiful country.;)

    I can see a lot of rocks out there that need "killed".:)

    What is the "338"?

    Sorry Dick, it's a 338 Edge.
    This is my first custom and I'm hooked. Each time I pull the trigger, I get this s*@t eating grin from ear to ear. Can't wait till hunting season:D

    I thought it probably was as the range and results kinda spelled "Edge".;)

    I know what you mean about the ear to ear stuff. Sure is fun smacking stuff at ranges where you can't even see the target with your naked eye.:)

    Len needs to come up with a BIG smiley.
