practice shoot went well... match next Saturday

...and check this out:

We held a practice shoot for our long range match today, where we shot steel targets out to 1040 yards.

We had a 10" gong placed at 615 yards. One shooter hit the gong with a 300 Win Mag and spun the target around on edge...

A fellow named Breon Odell was the next shooter up... and we told him he'd have quite a challenge, since the plate was darned near slicing fulling toward the firing line, you could *just* see the edge, and a tiny sliver of the front of the plate...

Odell, shooting a .308 bolt gun built by Raven Rifles took the challenge...

Here's how the plate was hanging in the frame...



And here's a shot of Odell's hit, again, at 615 yards...



You can see the bullet strike on the edge of the plate easily...

We didn't ask him to do it again...

A good time and great fellowship was had by all, and I do appreciate all coming out... match is next weekend, November 3rd.
