.308 or '06?

Hat Trick said...

You're getting serious if you're resorting to that rifle for pest control. Isn't it a .300 Win mag?

How far away is that target? Looks like fun!

Brigid said...

Borepatch -.308 does work on pests. :-) No reloads for this type of shooting. The slightest variance in velocity will give you BIG vertical spreads at that range.

Miss D. - that's a thousand yards. Shooting at 1000 yards is a LOT different than drilling holes at 50 or 100. Horizontal wind deflection increases with the square of the distance, so even a 5mph crosswind shift can put you completely off paper at 1000 yards. Awareness of conditions and effect of mirage is essential. Plus the firearm helps, if you've got one that will do a quarter inch group at 100 yards it will do 1000.

Big fun, even if you don't get that gnat.

LOL! Now I feel so inadequate! Me, messing around with these silly Handguns!

Brigid said...

Keads - you're more proficient with a handgun than I'll ever be.

But the squirrely sniper shooting is fun.

Ah yessss, reaching out and touching something (someone) at long range gives one complete satisfaction!

I practice my long reach at 800 yds.
