Fun at 1000 yards

It's been about 9 years since my duties involved laying behind a scope. My work gun was better than my personal gun which has never been shot beyond 600 yards.

But we took some time this weekend when visiting friends up north to reach out on a C zone USPSA steel target. 700 was easy despite some full value wind.

1000 was kicking my ass. Only 6/20 hits. Brought back memories of fun and got to get my act together before my new GA Precision HRT rifle gets built.

We were shooting in county near my place so it looks the same as this. Could t shoot at my place due to all the rains the basin is full of water.

I truly don't know what that is other than a gun but it sure is cool. 1000 yards is crazy. Way above by pay grade but I would love to try it sometimes.

It's a pre Accutrigger Savage tactical model 10 in a PDC custom chassis stock. 2# trigger. Vortex viper PST 6-24 scope.

And since a 1 mph cross wind with a 308 will push the round 10-12 inches at 1000 yards you better be a master wind reader. Which I am not. It requires a good spotter with very good glass.

If a 1mpg wind will change your shot 12 inches then I guess a stronger wind would even be worse, would take years to master all that.

And don't forget it being different at several points.

I think this is going to get a lot people into long range shooting. Street value about 1100.

Reviews all over. Check out SnipersHide. At scout.com too.

In fact if it kicks my GAPs ass I am need Tourist to polish a new knife for wrists.
