I got to take a buddy of mine shooting this Sunday and a little bit. he has never shot anything over 50 or 100 yards or a rifle that is capable of shooting and a fairly long distance. anyways first shot at the 480 yards he was a little shaky and missed by an inch or so. Might have been because he never shot the rifle or just over whelmed at the distance. anyways the second shot connected and he is now hooked on shooting distance now. we are going to shoot more at 100 to 500 until he gets a better understanding of how it all works then going to move it on out.
 
here is a vide of his first ever hit at 480. you can hear it smack @ 0.08 sec.

I took another buddy out on the 4th. I set him up on the 780yard line and let him rip. This was his first shot. you hear the reverb then the smack.

300RUM.



we also shot some bullet resistant glass samples @ 500 yards. Just some testing for a friend. The 2 pieces are for to different levels nether for high powered rifles at any range. One held up well the other not so much. now I get to test more with this. Its neat stuff
