Trying out the Electronic Targets at Dead Zero in Spencer TN.
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 […]
I'm 19 years old and I have very little experience with rifles, or even hand guns at this point. I am aware of the idea of long-range shooting but truly don't know much beyond you shoot at a target that is far away. I am unfamiliar with cartridges, bullet weights and even brands of rifles. I was watching Public Enemies and see Melvin Pervice run the bolt on a Mauser 98 and think to myself, I want a bolt-action rifle. But what brand should I buy?
This will be my first post here, so hoping you all find it informative. A bit of background first though. I have been shooting for 40 years, Reloading for 20 years, Precision shooting/Benchrest shooting for about 4 years. I still don’t know a dadgum thing. Every time I think I have had an AH HAH! […]
Hey guys, I would like to start my contributions to The Reloaders Network by answering the common questions I get asked regarding the Uintah Precision UPR-10. It is a bolt action AR-10 upper, mine is chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor. The questions I am most often asked are; Why a bolt action AR-10? Why are they so expensive? Why would I buy this when I can buy a Ruger Precision rifle for the same price?
High velocity cast bullets at 500 yards, 2605 fps 5 shot sub 2 MOA consecutive group.
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.
The wait is over and the video turned out awesome. This is the first time I have seen the target camera footage. This was filmed this past May at The Long Range Shooter's of Utah's International Milk Jug Challenge. I am using my Ruger American Predator chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. Four shots was all it took to bust the jug. I also took home the Golden Jug Award.
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 […]
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 […]
Doing a little long range at Dead Zero in Spencer, TN. A Huge THANK YOU to Tread for sharing what he recorded with me.
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!
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 […]
As I write this, the rains and wind from Florence pelt my home in the foothills of NC. I will get some reloading done this weekend. I will leave my techniques for loading in Part 3. I want to discuss the effects of Wind, Light and Mirage and how it affects POI (point of impact). […]
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 […]
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.

This was recorded a week ago. I had went out and shot ten rounds off camera in the morning, and put all ten on target. I had a slight breeze, left to right for the first six shots, then it changed, right to left for the last four. Filming at the thousand yard range is […]
Hello and welcome to The Reloaders Network. First thing, a HUGE THANKS to Loads of Bacon for all his hard work setting up this community. This is going to be big, I have no doubt. So recently I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog, or some kind of weekly post and […]
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 […]
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.
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 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.
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.
