I'm sure I'll get quite a bit of crap for this, but lobbing lead at a target until all your lucky stars finally line up, doesnt really impress me much...To each their own...I appreciate what they do for the sport by pushing the limits to make consistent hits at the longer ranges for us normal folk.
And ,, in the real world, one shot is all you can realistically expect, the second shot , critter will be moving. Still pretty cool, just for fun.

A secret

From what I heard the first shots where 150’ off target so it took quite a while to find impacts. Then they danced around target for a few shots before impact

Ballistic calculators only get ya so far

My name is Paul Phillips. I’m the person that was in the article. There is always alot of debate with these exhibition shots and I think it’s fun to read everyone’s opinion. However, I wanted to clarify that the purpose of this was to test new equipment. To see how far we could impact a plate and look at the science behind it all. A lot of what we are doing is learning on how to be better at ELR. My team placed 1,3,4 out of 80 at the king of 2 miles. We are not just out to claim records. This is just practice. One thing that has not been mentioned is after we finally got a good 4 miles zero we then had several shots in a row within 10-15 feet. This told us that certain projectiles travel through transonic and subsonic much better then others. This is very important in the ELR world. All of this info is very critical in competitions. We take everything we learn and apply It to the next year. We keep learning so much. Another important thing discovered is how much light played a role. Not many people talk about this much in books. We saw up to as much as 50-100 moa difference with just lighting changes.

The next attempt will be at 8000k yards and we will be using a 1 moa target. we will have a video crew on sight and will document this for research purposes. This is all in fun and in the name of science.

We will also be competing at king Of 2 miles in USA, France and Canada if this Covid 19 doesn’t cancel them.


We believe that what we are doing is helping us be successful at 2 miles. 2 out of the 5 people that have impacted 2 miles within only 5 shots during the king are on team GPG. Our goal is for to all hit this year.

Another important fact is once we got a zero at 4 miles, the Next day we were within 15 feet on our cold bore shot. We followed up with several 3 shot groups within 15 feet apart. This is a very interesting learning process.

one last point, during the 1990’s we attempted to shoot 2000 yards with my 300 win mag only to have 1-3 hits out of 10 impact a 6x6 target. This 300 win mag was the same rifle I made the leech cup shoot off in 97. Fast forward to today, with all of the technology and improved rifles, ammo and ballistic solvers, we have seen 10 in a row at a mile under 14 inches. The point is, we are learning and getting better.

We are just having fun and learning about how to push the limits and get better at ELR.

I hope to see you guys at an ELR match soon

cheers !!

FYI. applied ballistics analytics with cutting edge lasers really do work !! The only reason we can shoot past 2 miles is because of the TACOMHQ Charlie and delta. They are truly amazing products.

What was the velocity of the bullet when it hit the target?

Light is very interesting topic and would like to know more.

When I practise ,I like be in the shade and target.(my hunting is usualy not in direct sunlight).

Light would be good topic.
