Just today.

8mm RM 200 TSX Barnes 3200 fps.

500 yards, shooting over my hunting pack laying on the ground.

A breeze to the left that is a 3" group.

A life-sized deer target.


I'm using the second "Hash" mark on my droptine 4/12x14 Burris scope.

When I find a drive up place for a 700 yard target I'll try the 3rd and 4th hash.

very good shooting.

but you need to start shooting at a black bear target...that 8mm mag is a BIG killer on thick stuff.
The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.
