I'm not sure but I might need an intervention. I think I might have a elr addiction. We went to one our spots to shoot 1200-1400yds, and "the rock" just happened to be up the valley from where we were shooting. I told my buddy, the rock is calling my name. He said are you gonna shoot it. I said I'm gonna shoot it. I read the mirage off the rock and dialed my shot. Well I tried to dial, poor little 4-14 shv only had about 68 moa of adjustments. I dialed 64 moa in the scope and held 10 moa in the reticle. Elevation is right there and I missed the wind by .25 moa but I'll take it. Wasn't much steam left in the boiler room by the time they got there. Cold Bore and a follow up. 1966yds

That's how it starts ! I will tell you from experience. 1000, 1390 , 1760 on a milk jug , 2053 , then out to 3027 yards. 1.72 mile ! Personal best to date!
I'm going to try 2 miles this fall !

You have started it now ! Best of luck to you !
Congrads on your 1966 yard shots !

Great thats what I was afraid of cause we were talking about hiking a piece of steel up the hill a little further so the 2000 yd shot would be available.

2 miles now thats out there. I might need a bigger gun

Yes sir, i would normally be shooting my Edge at the longer distances but thought what the heck the 300 is pretty dialed in.
I have a Defensive Edge canyon rifle 30" hart barrel sending 300 bergers.
Hunting season is going to slow down my shooting but definitely want to try the 2000 yd shot before winter.

Great shooting! May as well say 2000. What's a mere 34 yards among friends anyway?

I'm thinking that shot has been on your mind awhile......had to be done, correct?

Well I actually wanted to be over 1760 so I could call a true mile. So I guess I'll have to hike the steel up the hill the extra yardage and give it a go. It'll probably be with the Edge though and hunting is going full speed right now and snow is starting to show up at our shooting spot
