Default Shooting 2060 Yards! 1.17 Miles

Hey Guys! A couple days ago I went out and did some of my best shooting ever, at 2060 yards! I was shooting my savage 110 BA chambered in 338 Lapua with 300gr Berger OTM's at a steel torso target. Out of a total of 18 rounds fired I landed 4 solid hits. I probably would have done better but I had no idea I was hitting the target so a few times I dialed off after hitting. Time to get a better spotting scope now! Made a short video of the shoot, hope you enjoy!

I am legitimately jealous. Not only of the fact that you own such a wicked rifle, but also that you've got the range to actually let it shine. I would love to be able to hit targets out to even half the distance you did in this video.

Sadly I've only got a .243 so in stuck with maybe a max range of 500 yards or so before it becomes luck. I don't even think I could fine tarring allowing me to take a shot that far to be dead honest.

So where did you come by your shooting skills? And where is this shot? Looks like nice country.

Griz- what are you using for glass, and what was the wind? Nice shooting, BTW.

My pops started having me shoot at the age of 6. But growing up I never had the chance to shoot much, only when we went camping out in the desert. But I always seemed to be a good shot. Then a couple years ago I found I was pretty good with a mosin nagant, then just last year got my first scoped rifle to see what I could really do. I've studied up on the fundamentals quite a bit, just learning to be consistent in everything. No formal training. This is shot in the colorado rocky mountains, very nice out here indeed!

Thanks! The scope is a nightforce nxs 5.5-22x56 MIL/MIL, the wind that morning was very low around 1-2 mph head wind with 3mph gust once in a while. I only had to dial .6 mil L and at least .5 mil went to correct spin drift.

You are so lucky, I've always wanted to go out to a mile, but there is no where around here to go that distance
