I've shot long range in one form or another since late last century.  ALways stayed with the philosophy that the basic principals of shooting will not fail you when you really need them.
After a shooting related uh-oh that sidelined me for about 9 months I resumed my shooting passtime, and started picking up bits an pieces of Gucci gear to accompany me to the range.  My shooting proficiency came close to pre-Uh-oh status but never really returned to the level I felt capably of.

For the last 4 months I've had my wife video me as I shot prone, both dry fire and out in the back pasture.  Watching this video a thought I found something that was really casuing a great deal of trouble, at least to me. 
So today at the range I abandoned all the glitz and glamour gear.

Rifle, sling, scope, spotter, ammo and water.  Nothing else.

Thats pretty fast for a 190 out of a 308.  I would have thought it would be 175 SMK's, Nice Group.
