Finally decided I was ready to go out past 1,000 yards. Shooting my 6.5 creed with a 140 eld-m on too of 41 grains of rl-17 launched at 2828 fps. I took a couple shots at 755 yards to make sure my elevation was good and to figure out my wind. Once I got that I sent a round out to 1348 yards and made a hit first try. Then the wind picked up and I spent 2 more rounds hitting the target but not center. Then i got my wind hold figured out and stacked 2 one on top of the other in the center. Took a break to let the barrel cool and launched a few at 1454 yards. That's when things started to get tricky, but I did land a hit on the 4th or 5th round. Let's just say I'm hooked on elr now! Cant wait to get my bigger 7mm built as that will be more suited for those ranges.
