That's good shooting, but I really would have been impressed if it was done with the iron sights and no bipod.

Someone said the Ballistic Reticles did not work well at Long Range Shots. Check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCyTRzL5AAQ

Im sure it takes tons of practice to get this good. One problem is you may end up wounding an animal in the process. Ive wounded animals and they have gotten away and it always made me feel like sh*t myself.

I've resisted as long as I can... next quest is a Match Grade M-1.  I love that rifle, can't believe I don't own one.

Yeah it was a great shot! I cannot wait til I can start target shooting a little more. Thats why I would like the Z5 I mentioned, but I do not know if I could ever get that good. Its fun to try though, just to see if you can get em on paper. I always used to take out the old rifle, sight it in and go huntin. Well most of the time that works out around where I live But the 830 yard shot is a whole different game, way different then what Im used to.
