Hi Tikka, yeah mate I'm doing good at the moment.Survived a lot of hospital visits over the last couple of years and doing alright.

How's the greenest state in the land of the free?

Hope those Tikka's and car's are still going well?

Have a good one,

Macca, nice to see you posting again.

I know the way that hospital stuff works.  Remember to enjoy the times when the medical problems are minimal...and get shooting.

I noticed in the standings you posted that the 6.5 and 7mm seem to rule?  But the winner was the only one using a 30 cal.  Are the BC of the 6.5 and 7mm that much of an advantage???

Stay healthy.

In light gun the 6.5 and 7mm projectiles seem to have an edge.I'm running a straight 284 win and that was the second group I'd shot at 1k.

In heavy gun it's all 30 cal down here.The ten shot groups and high speed 30's seem to come back into their own.

Good to be back posting here.

We don't have no 1000 yard place to shoot.  How about a 200 yard target with the group multiplied by 5?

Well gents! I guess it's time to break out the ammo and head over to the farm for this Looong Distance Shooting at 1000yds. Now personally I don't know how anyone can compare a 200 yard target to one that has been officially shot at 1000yds.

Now this 1000yd deal, separates the shooters from those that think they are marksmen with a rifle simply put. March around here is a little hectic with gusting winds and turbulance. However, I'll see what we can do next week at 1000 yds with my trusty .264/.270WSM, Norma .6.5/284 and tricked ouit 7mm Rem. mag. I'll choose the best target for you to admire Boys!

How can you tell if a target was shot at 200 yds or at 100 yds.  Simple, the one has no holes in it.  Wink

But since this thread came back up to the top...is it time for a shoot?

Bear, It might just be time for a shoot. What are you proposing? Should we go for groups or X's? Two 5 shot groups, average of the two, Or, a 10 bull page with 1 shot on each target? I'm open to most anything. RD

Well, first I think we should see what range people would like or can do?

Everyone has a 200 yard and 300 is fairly available.  True official 1000 yd ranges are a little tough to get to.

What would folks like.

Could do a 200 yard 375 H& H or bigger?  375/405/416/45-70/ 450/458/470 ?

Do we want bench or standing?   sitting?

BEAR....You know the one thing I never have come across on a hunt while in the field was a shooting bench. So it seems to me that one should have to shoot from a general shooting position, such as standing, sitting, prone etc.

I can appreciate the fact, that many don't have access to a 1000 yard range, so I will cast my vote for the distance of 300 yards simply put. I believe this is more in tune with what most rifle distance is when shooting at MAX distance on big game give or take a yard or two Bear.

Mule, just a little north of you you will find Port Clinton, bordering Camp Perry. I have shot 1000 yards there many, many times. You could even take the wife and kids (?) because Sandusky is near there and they would have something to do too. I think you'll like Camp Perry........................Kingpin
