    Yes, looks good. What caliber are you using?

    Wow! That is not a nice target, that is an AMAZING target. .37 MOA (roughly) at 1,000? Yeah, that will get it done. :D

    Great shooting. Now let's see some pictures and specs on the rig you used to do it with.

    I am guessing it's no fresh out of the box Remington. :cool:

    The target was shot this past Saturday by another guy. It is a thing of beauty. Don't hold my feet to the fire but I think the rifle was some 6MM. Sorry I don't know more.

    On the other hand I fired my first sub 5" group at the same match. I shoot light gun with an old, old Hart rifle. This gun is number 27 of the 38 he made. It has a Hart action, Hart wood stock, Kreiger barrel with brake, chambered in 6.5X284. I use H4350 & a Sierra 142 MK. I haven't done a photo of the target but here's the score sheet. Look for Halstead.

    6MM makes sense. We have a older guy here shooting 1000 with a 243 Win. He's a very accomplished shooter and shoots groups similar to what you posted. The only problem he has is that he goes through 3 or so barrels a year with that .243. Actually not a problem for him as every year he orders 4 barrels for his rifle at a time.
