thats some good shooting critter, 2" groups at800 yrds

It's lots and lots of practice with all the rifles that I own to be able to do the kind of shoothing that I am able to do.  It didn't hurt in that my dad was a rifle instructur in the army in WWII.  I have also found that a lot of practice with a pistol has made me a better shot with a rifle.

I might could squeeze out a

I might could squeeze out a 400 yd range on my place if I were to work at it maybe as much as 450 and it would mean turning my biggest food plot into a shooting range which is not a desireable soloution.  I am envious of someone that has 800 yards available.  I am having to push my loads on the high side of max to get the velocity out of my '06 that I get.  Have not had any issues with pressure signs though.

Critter that is some mighty stong shooting.  Thanks for the answers.
