Took my APRS .300 win mag out to the mile mark the other day, took three shots to get on the 2ft x 2ft steel target, and then hit 14 out of 20, it really exposed some faults with technique/method etc which was good for me. I can see why alot of guys like to really to push the limits of their chosen hardware, it was a pretty cool feeling!

Just thought id share.....

I agree. Farthest I have been able to shoot them is 1200 yards. R22 and win brass with wlrm. Only thing I adjusted for was spin drift (very little wind)!and made every hit and was 3/4 Moa and on target. Used the g1 and it was spot
on. Was running them 2935 fps at 350 asl.

But that is some awesome shooting man! Congrats and merry Christmas
