Well guys I finally got a chance to attempt 2500 yards. I set my target up and drove to my mile firing line and lazered the opposite direction to the base of a hill. 740 yards. When I got to that spot the ground was angled just so that I couldnt see the target due to one tree limb in the way. So I moved over and back about 20 yards to a slight rise. Checked my GPS and again lazered the one mile firing line and figured Im at least 2520. I took several wind readings and put them into FTE. I was shooting in winds from 8' and shooting across a big valley and up a hill on the other side so I took off 2 MOA of vertical. Checked the wind one more time through the spotting scope and sent the first shot. It impacted about 1 foot high and 4 ft to the right. So I came down and left and sent another shot. I saw dirt kick up right at the target but throught the fixed 16x MK4 I couldnt tell exactly if it was high or low. So I did the same hold and the 3 shot hit the top left of the target!!!! Sweet! My farthes hit yet! Well my next 3 shots hit all around the target and it was just a matter of luck getting a hit as I couldnt tell what the wind was doing at target until I saw bullet splash. Well then I got lucky and connect two shots in a row, missed a shot then hit it a fourth time. Well then I went on a dry spell and missed 15 more shots all around the plate and decided to call it a day. So I fired 25 shots and got 4 hits at 2520. Not the best average but Im lucky to have hit it considering I went sub sonic just past 2000 yards. The berger hybrid transitioned extremely well in my opinion. All impacts were nose first into the target.
