That is very good for a Blaser!

Next time you might try putting the target the right way up!

It might improve your group|! rotflmo

Mike,

I posted an upside down target once someone took me to task!

Why should you get away with it!

We give no special privileges to fishermen here!

Especially Blaser shooters!

Nice group dead critters for sure.

I use to think 300 yards as long range then I started out shooting further.

I have a private 700 yard range many hunters come and say they never shot passed a hundred.

I take them back to 600 and they are wowed.

Then I put them behind a highly accurate rifle with a bi-pod coach them through the first shot,

When they hit the target with the first round they all have a big smile on their face.

Oh, and fine shooting Beretta682E! Nice sub MOA group and a great warm-up to longer range shooting.

The problem with most is they never try to shoot long range. First is you have to understand the ballistic of the round you are shooting then practice at 4,5,6 hundred yards. Once you remove the Boogie Man from Long range shooting then you can then began to improve.

It’s florida - a 300 yard range is a rarity. It’s flat with no natural backstops and green. It gets wet 1/2 the year. Not a idea place for long range shooting.

Exactly why I could never live there - I love long range shooting too much.
