Shot my .300 WSM at 300 yards. Steel is 5x10x3/8" mild steel. Target dot is 2". Range was lasered.

Good shooting Bill! I'm looking at a new club because of the ranges many of you folks have. Our max at Western Wayne County Conservation Club is 200. It is a fine club but distance is lacking.

I am really lucky, I am surrounded by LOTS of National Forest and open Desert. Shooting at any distance is limited to my willingness to haul out the target.

Nice shooting Bill! Looks like you need to invest in some AR-400 steel, and an ATV to haul it out there.Bucky

The good news is, I have worked with structural steel for so long, I know where everyone's drop piles are. I have tried to convince the wife that I need a quad, but its not working.

Good shooting,the steel I have just digs with a 338 at 100 yards. I like it so far. its heavy and who I take shooting don't like toting it 300+ yards. I did some shooting today but the North carolina wind was killing me, wet ground so shot out of the back of the truck (that) sucked but I was shooting.

Good shooting. Shooting steel is fun, Hauling it around not so. Nice to have a range where you can drive to the drop off points!

Easy, take her along once and get her to lug a target or two! Bucky
 
Incidentally, a wheeled shopping basket of modified golfbag cart or pneumatic wheeled hand truck beats the heck out of hand carrying styeel targets.

Nice shooting! I like shooting steel as well. One of the ranges I shoot at used to have about 6 steel targets hanging at the 200yd and 3 or 4 at the 300yd ranges. I was told they removed them due to the possibility of bullets going out of the range. Which made no sense to me since the angle they were hanging at would have put them into the ground.

Getting close to that... Not much left of my Savage is Savage anymore. I put it in a Choate stock, and switched out the barrel for McGowan. I am going shooting in the morning, I will get more target pics.

Thanks for the invite today:) I had fun shooting, we need to go again. We will need to find a place in there that can get us to 1000yds or more:)

600 yard cold bore, cold shooter. We could have shot further, but we were having so much fun we forgot to.

Nice! I hope to shoot like that when I grow up!!
Now you have me perplexed!! I had determined that my next build was to be a 270wsm. I do like the 300wsm but have always liked 270 more. BUT!!! for 1000yd+ the 300wsm makes an overwhelming case. I had in mind that I'd load 140's for the 270wsm which have proven very good for distance. If I built a 300wsm I'd planned to load 168's. I wouldn't care to go heavier unless it just wouldn't perform with the 168's. Alot of you guys laff a recoil, unfortunatly my punished ole frame don't like it so much anymore. I have carried my 300wm Sendro all this yr and its recoil is really not worthy of mention. But any more than it gives would discourage my useing it. So it comes down to ballistics and bullet options. Clearly the 300 offers more options. But the fact is I will only load what the rifle likes best. So, the next consideration is you guy's personal experience. Now the 270 haters try to control yourselves!! Its a proven contender............. I guess I'm looking some gentle simple wisdom to help me see the obvious knowing that I am somewhat biased toward the 270.
 
Again impressive shooting!!
