    Default 2 mile shooting -3500 yards

    After reading about Craig Slack and Bruce Artus (Colorado guys) hitting gongs at 3125 yards with a 308 improved and a 338.(Craig holds the world record for hitting a prairie dog at 3125 yards) I knew I had to do it. Skip Talbot and gang hitting a 13 foot rock at 2 miles also fed the flames for the 2 mile quest. I got a fifty and have shot it out to 2000 yards but when I got my Cheytac I knew it would do the distance.(as well as my 50) If a 240 grain Serria will do 3125 at 2400 fps (Bruce's 308 improved) My 408 (with Jamison solids) should reach 3500. This was the case yesterday. I left my house at 4 in the morning to be in place and ready to go before the sun heated things up and after the long drive and setting up my planning had paid off. My kestrel 4500 weather meter was reading 1 mph wind and 64 degrees. Conditions were perfect.(all my data was entered in my computer) My gun was zeroed at 1770 yards on the top of my ridicule of my night force NPr1 reticule. I have shot at this location before and had everything ranged with GPS, Google earth and my Barr an Stroud range finder. Within a few shots we were hitting at a mile on our target and after 8 in a row I decided to go straight to 2 miles. conditions were still perfect and I wanted to shoot before conditions changed. The target was a 6 foot rock so we could see impacts. I took my first shot and was low about 12 feet but lined up dead center. I knew if I could see impacts I could make corrections and get a hit. I have tried this before but I could not see impacts so I gave up. I tried to move my scope but I was out of elevation So I bagged down my rifle and loosened up my adjustable rings and gained some more elevation. Next shot I couldn't see any impact. This made me nervous. Next shot I saw a small dirt geyser! And after adjusting and taking a shoot I saw an impact on the top right of the boulder. Bam- I had hit at 2 miles. I was quite pumped.

    You can see the target area where the red arrow is.

    We fired some more shots and got a few hits and some misses and decided to try it with my 50.(EDM conversion)



    Because I lost my zero we had to monkey around to reestablish it. Before long we were hitting at a mile. With my suppressor on (which ads 18 inches) shooting this far tilts the scope into my suppressor and there was allot of mirage. I thought out to 2 miles would not work with my can on and decided to not attempt it. We spent the next few hours shooting varying distances and having a blast. t was a day I won't forget.
    I was surprised how well you can see at 2 miles with good optics. The 10 second or so flight time was pretty awesome. A few obligatory pictures.







    I took some video but you cant see anything because it's 2 miles away!

    Sarcasm aside. Good shooting. Nice nice nice rifles. I am so jealous of your guns. But most importantly somewhere you can shoot that far. I can get the guns a LOT easier than a place to shoot 2 miles without having to use a bulldozer to open a path and blocking off a public roadway.

    Ridgehunter--I'm always so grateful I never talk. Vaginas are like wild animals. You have to be very quiet or you scare them away. Even after you gain one's trust you should still be *amazed* it comes close enough to let you touch it. Especially most of us here. I've seen a lot of ya'll. Don't call up all your friends and yell "IT'S EATING FROM MY HAND RIGHT NOW."

    Some where between Denver and L.A.

    This place is awesome to shoot. No one is out there. I hesitate to give it out. It's my shooting honey hole.
