Range gear has a use and isn't always just some fancy thing to show off. The use of single loading devices in the M-1 is about safety as not to drop the bolt on a loaded chamber. Spotting scopes are abundant these days and there isn't any reason to go out and spend a lot of money on one for your use. Shop around and save your money for loading components. A cheaper scope may have all the features you need.
I go over the details of this custom rifle made for PRS style and long-range competitive shooting. The rifle was built by Preferred Barrels and equipped with a Tikka T3 prefit with a taperless 900 contour, custom fluted, and cerakoted.
Doing a little long range at Dead Zero in Spencer, TN. A Huge THANK YOU to Tread for sharing what he recorded with me.
Trying out the Electronic Targets at Dead Zero in Spencer TN.
On our last trip to the desert we tested our new Bullseye Camera System at 1 mile (1760 yards). We wanted something to help spot misses at distance when the spotter can't see or conditions aren't conducive to spotting misses.
We took out the new swinger target last weekend to give it a test run at 1000 yards while we did our 1 mile shooting trip. We didn't spend a lot of time with the swinger but it seemed to hold up well.
This is footage from a video we posted last Summer 2018. We added a timer to show all 4 consecutive shots and hits were made in under 1 minute and 30 seconds and were Sub MOA. This was with my Savage 112 Target .338 Lapua Magnum.
Our friends Matt & Corey from out of town came down to do some shooting the other weekend. We wanted to shoot at our 1000 yard spot but we were unable to reach it due to downed trees. Targets at 500 yards 10.5″ and 4.5″ plates. This was our first time shooting rifles with a […]
Often when we have someone start talking to us about long range shooting they often say something like, “Yeah I would like to do that, but I can’t afford the rifle I would need”, or, “That sounds like an expensive hobby”, or maybe, “I don’t reload so I can’t be successful at distance.” While equipment […]
We have said it before and I will say it again. One of the hazards of teaching your kids how to shoot long range is that they might just shoot better than you. Well, after I took Mighty Mouse out and had success at 1000 yards my daughter Paige said she wanted to give it […]
Well with the load work complete and with Mighty Mouse sighted in at 100 yards it’s finally time to see if Mighty Mouse can dispatch a zombie at distance. So out to our shooting area we went. I must say I was pretty nervous once we got everything set up and it was time to […]
I went on a trip with my brother and set up targets at 350 and 500. This is the first time really going for groups at distance with the 95g Sierra Match King. My rifle has a 1:7 twist so I was curious how stable they would be.
This was my first opportunity to test the Vortex Diamondback Tactical FFP 4-16 scope. This model is MOA with an EBR-2C reticle and matching MOA turrets which is exactly what you want in a scope, a reticle that matches the turrets. That makes measuring and dialing the correct adjustment easy. This is not my Review for the Vortex Diamond Back Tactical I want to try it a few more times before having a solid opinion on how I feel about it.
For this episode I sit down and Talk with Mrs. WDS about what it’s like dealing with myself and my constant Precision Rifle thinking or video making. We also talk about our families and when we got into firearms and how we feel about dogs! It’s a fun one that is very relaxed and an easy listen for all. Hope you enjoy and thanks to my wife for sharing!
Having a good spotter and spotting scope when shooting long range is very important. We use a Leupold Mark 4 20-60×80 spotting scope with a TMR mil reticle. Using scopes with mil reticles on the rifles and spotting scope makes calling corrections fast and easy. Shooting at 500, 1000 yards or 1 mile, as long […]
Shooting 3.875" target plate at 500 yards after zeroing groups on 10.5" plate. Getting practice in to shoot 1000 1250 1500 yards & 1 mile this Spring and Summer LRS ELR.
Sub and Sub half .MOA groups at 500 yards - Long range shooting, LRS - Shooting Savage 12 LRP .260 Rem rifle with Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24x50 scope and Savage 12 FV 6.5 Creedmoor with a SWFA SS Fixed 10 X scope. Doing a little target practice for shooting 1000 yards and 1250 yards this Summer with these rifles.
Check out this comprehensive video that will help explain the in’s and outs of reloading for precision rifle. It doesn’t matter if your just having fun punching paper, shooting F-class matches or out competing in PRS. The information in this video will help you get the results you are looking for!
After 2 rounds of Satterlee load development with new and once fired Starline Brass, I am taking 41.5g of H4350 out to the 1000 yard line using Hornady 147g ELD's. This method works very well and saves on components. Most cases you can have a good shooting load in 10 rounds or less.
Shooting 1,000 yards with the Savage 12 LRP .260 Rem, Savage 12 FV 6.5 Creedmoor & the Savage 112 Target .338 Lapua magnum. It was a Savage kind of day. Filmed 12-29-18 one last video for 2018.
Today, we are stretching out the Fort Scott Solid Copper rounds to longer distances. Starting at 200yds and going on out to 500yds, with 5 rounds each. This is loaded with 44g of H4350 at 3250fps in Starline Brass.
Savage 112 .338 Lapua Magnum Target Rifles with 285gr Hornady ELD-M bullets using Retumbo powder in Lapua brass. Precision loads for 1 mile and beyond.
Satterlee 10 round ladder test with follow up results for long range loads. Both of these tests are using H4831 and yes I’ve tried H4350 and Re16 and I’m not worried about the speeds. =) Getting ready to do some long range testing with the .260 rem vs. the 6.5 creedmoor using the Hornady 140 […]
Having approached the 1,000 yard line many times in the past year each time with more confidence I have learned the hard way what does not work, which is just as critical as knowing what does. This will be a list of what I believe has led to both success and failures at the highly […]
