a good friend (educ8r- lr member) , his son, my dad and I headed up to the mountains on saturday with the intentions of validating our edges, and then do some long range shooting. we had everything we needed except a snowmobile! about 10 miles from destination we had to put chains on the truck. we made it a little further with the chains, but still miles from our spot, the snow was to deep and we had to stop. we found a spot to validate at 545 and figured that was better than nothing. thats the furthest we ending up shooting, but both of us were again, amazed by our edges. Shawn and his dad sure have this down! We had great shooting conditions, and we both shot some great groups while validating. I only shot two groups, because thats all i needed to validate. My biggest 3 shot group was approx 2.5" and the smallest was 1.47 inches. We then just took turns shooting each others guns and having fun. Just wanted to say thanks Shawn, Jeff and I couldnt be happier with the way ours guns shot.
