    I splurged today and took a few shots. one being a 600 yarder; I get closer to the center each time... even though I keep missing the steel target or what have I in the center.

    But I really need to focus on the 400 yard shot now. If I can get as tight as I am getting at 300 in 4 more shots, then keeping it tight for 4 more, I'll be progressing nicely.

    I need to find a 500 yard shot. I think that will help me greatly to progress from 400 to 500 instead of jumping to 600.

    One thing I don't like when I take 3 shots or more; my videos are too chopped-up to be as visually pleasing as I would like them to be. Sure I could make 3 videos but that would take me hours to upload.

    I am really liking those small targets too, can't wait until I am good enough at 400 to use them.

    That's some nice shooting there. Howa is a great gun at a great price. Can you do a review of the scope? I considered a Nikko Sterling but decided on a more expensive Nikon.

    Nothing wrong with that shooting.

    Looks like three dead BGs.

    Very Nice. Love the way you can follow the trail of the Bullet. Sweet video.

    I love this rifle, one of my best purchases.

    The Nikko Stirling scope is much better than I thought it would be. The glass isn't as clear as my Bushnell Elite 3200 but it is plenty clear for what I am using it for. I've shot in rain, snow storms, well after dusk and have had no problems seeing my targets.
    It tracks a lot better than my Bushnell does; I went from my 600 shot to the 300 shot and hit what looks to be exactly the same spot as I did yesterday. I love it! I can't get over how well it tracks.

    I know! The 600 yard one is the best I've gotten so far at that range. Nice big arch!
    :D

    I just know the rifle shoots better than I can, and want to catch up with it. I've gotten a lot better than I have just in the last month... and better yet in the last week, due to trying to be more precise and making each shot important.

    Thanks!

    I didn't find the video choppy since you were cutting from one distance to another. It seemed natural.

    And I also love videos where I can see the bullet trace.

    Thanks, everyone!

    I also love the trail it produces. I wish I could make a slow motion movie of it, I can only save individual frames to display them, which isn't all that cool without the sound.

    I just have to post this video from today.
    When I got to my bench I thought I was going to miss for sure; not just the 4 inch square but the whole target.
    I am figuring a new way to hold my camera in high winds; it'll probably involve a 4x4 driven into the ground.
