That's my impression. Then they went home ....... so they just shot until it finally hit?
I would settle for a first round, cold bore hit (then see it two days in a row)That's my impression. Then they went home ....
All they proved is that there isn't a + MOA rail on the market to get the sights high enough to make the adjustment necessary for a shot like that (someone on the video said something about a custom made rail) and that if you can keep the bullet in the air long enough it will hit a target at that distance.
I want to see someone who can hit that target 5 times out of five.
This is on my to-do list over a weekend this coming summer. I estimate I will need 115 to 120 MOA of elevation for the anticipated atmospheric conditions. A 40 MOA base with ATACR scope set on 12.5x should allow just this requirement. Uncertainty analysis predicts I will have about as much chance for a hit as hitting a Green 00 bet on a roulette wheel. I know the odds are low, and expect results to mirror the odds. If I hit or miss, I won’t care. I’ll just be happy while sitting next to a high altitude lake with my family viewing top of the earth beauty, and thankful I had the chance to try.I'd really wonder what one of Kirbys full tilt XHS could do at that distance.
Is this an open invite to go shooting with the legendary royinidaho?! WOW!Originally Posted by TXAoudadKlr View Post

375 AM XHS #56
Leuy 5.5-20 TMR - 40 MOA rail.
150 gr H-50 BMG
377 gr Cutting Edge - bc 0.95 (published)
MV: 3184 FPS (Chrony )
300 yd zero
She's a little hot at that load which reduces case life to less than desired. I'll probably slow her down to around 3125 where brass lasts and lasts and lasts.....
No shots beyond 300 so far with these bullets but SMKs shoot lights out at 1126 with a significantly lower bc.....
Shooter calls for 133.1 MOA up dope for 3600 yards @ 24"Hg
It'll probably take over a year to work up to that distance..... if I choose to.
However, when I get dopes/drops verified out to 2000+ if anyone wants to team up for the attempt maybe we'll move the date up a year or so.....
