    I shot this javelina today at a 1000yds with the 338 edge that Kirby build for me shooting the 300gr SMK @2930. Thanks Kirby!!!!!
    i was using a Panasonic 32x with a 2X doubler for 64X optical zoom. i want too try the new 70X.
    What is cool is you can see the bullet hit behind him three more times before he hits the ground

    Great video. If you watch it enough there are four dust clouds from the bullet. One behind the pig, one right above the feeder, and two beyond that. Great shot, thanks for sharing.gun)

    The camera is about three years old MOD# is SDR-H18 it 32x optical zoom with a image stabilzer and hard drive. but i have a sony 2x doubler that scews on the front of the camera. The new model is a 70X optical zoom. my wife just got one and i'm trying to get my hands on it to try the doubler on it that would give me 140X opticla zoom and hers uses a sd card no tapes or hard drives

    I guess you have too be careful not to shoot the legs off your feeder.

    Don't be to jealous. if you don't own land are know someone with it YOUR SOL. I'm lucky that my friend has some big ranches that i get to treat as my own are I'd be SOL. With no place to shot at all. The edge is awesome by for my favorite rifle and Kirby did a hell of a job. Now i need a 338AM
