we've got a 1000-yard varmint challenge started, which you can find on the small game forum, but not everyone has access to varmints, so we also going to open this challenge up to paper-shooters. yeah, i know that it would be a lot easier to have a 500yd or maybe even 750yd challenge, but hell, we're the BSBs; certainly one or two of us could do it!

the rules are simple:
  • MEMBERS ONLY! (duh!)
  • 1000 yards (or more), confirmed by at least 1 person who is there with you and willing (if necessary) to sign his/her name to the fact.
  • the opening date is 1 may 2005.
  • post your smallest 5-shot group on any standard target up to 36"x36".
  • any serious long-ranger probably has a range finder, but if not, use another method to measure the distance.
  • a picture or scan of the target must be posted including your name, the location (at least state and county), distance, rifle, cartridge, load and bullet used, and your witness.
  • the shooter of the smallest group holds the title until he is unseated by another shooter with a smaller group.

the prize for winning the challenge?

i am afraid that i am totally tapped for any money or prizes, but bragging rights are a given. also available is the fact that you will be known as a no-bullshit kind of shooter who has worked hard and achieved a huge milestone.

sound good?

i know that it's a pretty ambitious challenge, but it wouldn't be worth much otherwise. anyone who's got the guts to attempt this one and see it through deserves to be recognized. if you know any other long-rangers, refer them to this challenge and have them join BSB to get in on it.

while 1000yrds is the primary goal, we would also like to see pix and stores of some of the stepping stones up to this mark. please submit entries for 500yrds, 750yrds and 900yrds as well, and these will be displayed in order to show your progress!!

these rules and guidelines are a first-draft only, and i am sure that i left a few details out. i am not an experienced long-range or competition shooter, and doubt that i will be even trying out for this challenge any time soon. with that in mind, suggestions, ideas and comments on this proposal should be submitted on this thread. entries to the challenge can also be submitted on this thread. if any changes are made to the basic rules, they will be found here in this post. i will make them in bold print or make a notation at the bottom of this post describing the changes. i would like to have all amendments in place and a final version of the rules and guidelines by 1 may 2005.

alright! let's see some feedback on this and, hopefully, a few entries!

Yer NutS!

Actually, Sunk, this is all right, but not one of my rifles will shoot that far, I can't crank enough clicks on the scope. But it would be fine with me if the lead dog with the smallest witnessed 1000 yd five shotter gets "BSB Thousand Yard Emperor" added to his or her credits on the posts.

I do have a 1000 yard gun in the near future, tho.

made up your mind yet on caliber divisions? my proposal is for 2 divisions: .308" bullets and smaller, and division 2 for .309" and over.

being totally clueless ab out LOOONNNNGGGG range shooting, i don't even know if or where a good place to draw a line would be. if anyone wants to weigh-in on whther we should divide them up and where they should be divided, i'm willing to lsiten and learn.

Why does the target need to be 30"x30" ? That is a bit of a dissadvantage to us who prefer to shoot small hit small.

john - i see that i made a typo on that opening post! it should read 36x36, but that is a maximum size only. if you want to use something smaller, then go ahead!

will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with. as for myself, i would need the side of a barn, probably~~

Thanks I will try to make the next one smaller (that would be the picture) and hopefully the group the other 2 were better but they were @ 180, 250yds, I think the cross wind caught them on the 300.

Going out saturday to the range we will see.

With some luck and time I'll have some groups with my 7 RUM up before too much longer.  No promises though!

Hey,... just so happens I have a target from last week that I shot on the 300 yard lane.

      (an that's as long of a range that we've got around here  )

 

I was out at our local Sportsmans Club practicing up for my Wapiti hunt out in Idaho this October. This picture is of the complete 20 rounds I had with me. Now mind you this is one of those 8 inch Shoot n' See targets an @ 300 yards she was just a black dot. I was shooting my Remington 700 BDL using a Mildot scope 6.5-20x44 with an adjustable objective. I plan on going out a couple times a week from here on out to keep sharp for the hunt.

So anyhow,... here's the target:

7mm,

   Where are you hunting (area/zone)?  Saw a big old bull a couple of weekends ago, got him to stop and turn broadside to me @ 200yds, but couldn't get him to come back (archery).  Going out again this weekend for the end of archery.

I guess I should have explained the PIC it is 1/3 of an 8x10 piece of paper, the other 2 being 180 and 250 yds on the same sheet. Sorry my error!

Nice shooting Ray!

Hey TAZZ.....I have a couple of rifles that I can surely use for your 1000 yard challenge, but I just can't seem to convince those groundhogs, they should stay far far far away, until I get the gun loaded.

We have this 300-Ultra mag shooting 190 grain boat tail bullets by Sierra, which should work like taking fish out of a barrel. However, I have come to know first hand, that when it comes to target shooting, my trusty 300 Win mag is a tuff cookie to crumble in that department.

I also have this wildcat known as the .264/270WSM, (I just hate using the metric system!) which I have a lot of faith in lately and we are really itching to see just how good it can be at that range. Nothing is set in stone understand but it ought to be interesting needless to say. One thing is for sure, the recoil will be milder by far in comparison.  

Recoil of the 300 Ultra is 42 pounds....300 Win mag is 31 pounds. The .264/270WSM is a mere 21 pounds.

However, I must wait until warm weather and Spring arrive OK. It is just to hard on an old mans trigger finger dealing with all that frost on the bench.
