    I was Coyote hunting this morning and it got a little slow so I found a rock to kill. I had my wife spot for me and afterwards I found out she was recording it with her digital camera through my spotting scope. The rock was about the size of a soccer ball and was 1934 yards away. My come up was 63.75 MOA from a 300 yard zero. You can see the impact alot better if you make it full screen.

    I am using the 300 SMK at 2875 FPS. I use NF software on my Palm phone.

    I wish it was a coyote. It is hard to see. The big rock that is split, it is the white spot on it just left of the crack. It's hard to make out unless you make the video full screen. I guess I need better equipment if I keep up my movie career. :)

    Thanks...I did shoot one last year from this exact spot. 1150 yards with my 7stw. I can't call very good, I just glass for them and take long shots.

    Thanks. It was the Swarovski LG. I can get it to read out to 2000 in the mornings or evenings. More than 2000 just says error. It took a few tries to get a reading on that rock.

    You too. My fav method is LR ambush, that's why I got me a 270 AM.

    I enjoyed the excitement a female voice with that shot. You are to be envied a little. LRSickle has a wife like that, too.

    Great shot!

    That's fun isn't it. We slide in a little before light and crawl up a small hill and pop our heads over and glass. I have killed a couple that way. 630 and 1150.

    My wife goes everywhere with me. Up the steepest hills it doesn't matter. She is encouraging me to get a 338 AM and I am the one holding back :) The problem I see is that my EDGE will outshoot my rangefinder, so until I can afford a Vector, this rifle will be good enough.

    Great shot and thanks for sharing! Very cool and kudos to your wife!

    I'm guessing your bullet ws on the verge of going trans sonic?
