Default Range time - 1,000 yards

Was at the range last weekend. Shot at 830 and 1,000 yards. Variable wind made the shots at 1,000 yards go a little to the right - it was fun figuring out how to adjust, and then hitting the target. Since the wind was changing, it was challenging - every 5 shots I would hit 3 and miss 2 (at 1,000). The 830 yard target was much easier as it was in the middle of the hill and less affected by the wind.

Shot my .338 Lapua, Savage 110BA. Tested new loads, 250grain SMK bullets, 88.5 grains 7828 powder, case length trimmed to 2.70, total length 3.60. I was happy with the results, need to try 300 grain bullets and test out different loads with that.

awesome - envious of anyone with relatively easy access to this kind shooting range - did you have any other rifles you seriously considered when you got the Savage 110BA ? school me on what scope spec is considered minimum for 1000 yards (yes I hope to get in to long range at some point)

Oh yea one more thing, windage affects flight path when the round first leaves the barrel not down range. E.G a 2-3 MPH crosswind in the first 50 meters of flight will have the same effects on your impacts as a full value 20mph gust would have on the last 100 meters of flight. Your trajectory is however going to greatly affect by the angal of that shot. It'll throw off all your ballistic data. Try to find a round similar 2 a Sahara boat tail hollow point 175 grain when your punching out that far

I started with what caliber I wanted first. Since I reload, cost really wasn't a factor when considering the .338 Lapua. If you don't reload, I would either learn or stay away from the .338. .308 would be much more economical.

Right now a lot of long range guys are using the 6.5 Creedmoor and easily shooting 1,000+ yards. If I were to buy another rifle today, I would look at that if I wanted to shoot 1,000+yards.

As far as scopes, we could start a whole thread on that. Many have more $$$ in the scope than the gun. I went "economical" and started with a Vortex Viper 6-24X 50MM and then went to a Sightron 8X32 56MM. Both are great scopes for under $1K--but some will spend way over $2K for a scope.

most long range shooters spend WAY more on optics than on the gun. Vortex makes good scopes, glass is very clear and their built pretty rugged.

Nightforce and US Optics are other good companies as well.

I agree 100%. I spent around 2k on my nightforce NXS. I have about that in the gun too. It's a hunting gun though. 7mm STW. I go out you 800 so far.
