    Let's see where you shoot. Pics please.

    Here's my target range behind my house. I put up 10" AR500 Plate targets at 300 and 400 and then 18" AR500 plate at 500, 600, and 700. 800 and 900 are 1/4" steel about 2' X 2'. The 1000 yard target is that plate on the back of semi truck where the trailer attaches to. It's a nice place to...

    145 Gr. .277 ELD X won't group
