Ernie,

Thats mighty fine shooting. It is so hard keeping that fifth one together instead of becomming a member of the frequent flyer club.

It is good to hear that you are happy with that rig BAT makes a very good foundation to start from. Which action model is it?

I know this is terrible, but I can't remember!Embarrased
I will post it later.
I was working so fast to trying to get all five in "the condition" that I never even worried about the last shot.

That is some remarkable shooting.

And for the record, I seriously doubt that we have a whole lot of people her who routinely (or ever) get results like this.  I have not seen a whole lot of 1000 yard groups that are less than 4 inches (to put it mildly).

That is some great shooting.  I can only dream one day of shooting a group like that, and that with a rifle.

When you have great equipment it is easier to make great groups a reality.

Outstanding!

I can't not shot or clam I can. I'm just really lucky sometimes.




This is my best. It was luck but still not bad for me. 1st pic is big to show distance


 
Target clean

 

 
This was my best ever 1200 yard (farthest I have shot) group. This was nothing but luck.
