For those of us stuck with dial-up, what's the video about?

(IOW, don't do drive-by posting.)

Guy took a long shot, Art, at a coyote, 1017? yards, and nailed it. Really good shooting. Was it dumb luck? I don't think so, the guy acted like he knew what he was doing, doping wind, calculating drop, making it look not easy, but doable. He was using 107 grain VLD bullets and had obviously done his homework.

I've got a .243 in the locker that I've wanted to play with for awhile, to snatch the barrel off and install something heavier with a 7" or 8" twist. Mine shoots 100 grain bullets just fine with the factory barrel, but 107 Matchkings are starting to keyhole at 200 yards, letting me know that I'm on the ragged edge of stabilization and need a faster twist. That project is on my back-burner list, but it is one that I intend to accomplish in the next year or so.

I bet he thought he was safely out of range.
