I wish I could be shooting, but been spending the last month or so on the recliner with back issue. Lots of pain standing or even walking. MRI showed a herniated disc pressing against a nerve. Surgery scheduled for the 20th of this month. Wish me well.

I can no longer shoot prone and have found the tripod works well for me. If my back starts aching, I shorten it and shoot from a chair. I like shooting standing when possible.

Prayers coming to you Rick to be watched over during your procedure and protected as only our heavenly father can do

I shoot a lot, mostly at targets, and seldom further than 600 yards! Your discussion brought a question to mind. Does shooting steel create enough impact energy to throw sparks, and cause grass fires when it is very dry? Can normal bullets Start Fires?

I have no scientific evidence but I would just have to say yes a lot of heat is generated upon impact look what a 6.5 x 2 84 with a burger hunting bullet can do to a piece of mild steel 1 inch thick at 500 yards,impact plus heat to make those holes

Amen to that, 338 dude! I, too, will be praying for you, Mr. Rick Richard! Back surgery is always a little sketchy so will pray that HE guides the surgeon's hands. Heal up soon, sir, and get back in the saddle!

I did a quite a bit of shooting with various handguns in June. 2 revolvers: S&W model 586 and a 357 Magnum Franken-Ruger.
A bunch of different specialty pistols, but these 8 are the ones I shot the most: 6x45 XP-100, 6x47 XP-100, 6.5 Creed XP-100, 6XC HSP, 6 Creed HSP, 6mm Long Dasher XP-100, Kauger Arms-Black Widow 6.5x47 Lapua, non-designated BAT rear grip in 7mm-300 PRC.

I had surgery in November, back fission, I’m still not over it, in 2014 I had what you have, Doc shaved a little off my disc, when I woke up I could walk, dance, oh it was so good. But beware not to over do it or you could end up with what I had done in November
