    We went out shooting yesterday and got a little shooting done at 2368 yards. The rifle is a Jim Borden built switch barrel (270 rum, 7mm rum, and 338 edge) that I picked up here on LRH last year. Range was taken with a Terrapin rangefinder , Leupold Mk 4 spotter, scope is an NXS 5.5-22x56 mounted on a 40 moa rail in Burris signature rings with with 20 moa inserts. The load is a 300gr OTM over h1000 in Nosler brass at 2880fps. Elevation correction was 98.8 moa, windage was zeroed out by spindrift and corealis.

    The target is about 24"x48" based on reticle measurements. Not super small but I'm pretty happy with our results. All of the shots danced around the rock with a couple solid hits.

    I tried it with my 284 striker pistol, but didn't have quite enough elevation to dial the 143 Moa that it would have taken. :D
