I don't normally make videos. I am.much more of a "photo with details" guy. I feel kind of weird about talking to myself on camera with no one else around. But, here goes nothing.

The last month or so, I have started making videos of my shooting LR steel. It has actually helped me discover a few things on my own techniques.

Even though these have all been taken in the last 2 months, with the AZ summer in full swing, the LR shooting has slowed down a bit with the heat.

I will be uploading a few videos, with a very brief explanation as time goes by.

I am by no means a videographer, I have a face better suited for radio, but not the voice, so you get what you get. Also, not a lot of commentary on the videos I have made so far. So enjoy the "pfft....ding (or whop)" for now.

My first video is from two days ago, at the end of the day actually. 120+ rounds fired from 7 different rifles. From 608 to 1389 yards.

This is with my 6 Creeedmoor, 105 Hyb @ 3188fps. 608 yards on a 6" round gong. I don't normally (actually hardly ever) shoot more than 3 shots, and never at a fast pace. This is about as fast as I am comfortable shooting. Even though I went 9 for 9, I don't consider this really "precision" shooting. But, practicing mag swaps by feel was sure fun.

Good shooting Lance. It woulda been better if all those other rude people shooting without suppressors woulda stopped.

My nephew has his first ever big game hunt in November. Bull elk in AZ GMU 7W.

Before 2 weeks ago, he had:
Never shot a bolt action rifle.
Never shot a scoped rifle.
Never shot over 50 yards.

I took him out 2 weeks ago to get him some trigger time behind a few of my rifles we will be taking on his hunt. Plus a couple others to get him some time behind the rifles.

I was quite surprised at how well he did. I started him out with my 6CM and got him set up. He went 4 for 4 on his first target...at 704 yards.

We upped the stakes with my suppressed 7SS (will be his backup rifle) from 656 to 1030 yards. Then moved on to my 7RM which will be his main rifle. Again, from 656 to 1030. He didn't miss until we tried the 1040 yard 8" gong. He hit 1 of 3 with each, so I will probably be limiting his shots to 800 max to make sure we stay within capabilities.

We went back out this morning, more to get some trigger time than test the hunting rifles. But, my nephew Logan is sure doing well. That will put the pressure squarely on my shoulders to find a bull now.

We have another 3 hours of range time booked for tomorrow, and two more days in November before his hunt.

We did some positional shooting today.

Man, I can't wait to get into the elk woods in a month! If I can find my nephew a good bull, he should crush one.

We practiced shooting from a very uncomfortable sitting position with a lousy front rest from 331 to 620. He hit all 3 shots. I smashed the shit out of my left bird finger (stupid bipod attached) demonstrating. Was a good lesson what NOT to do.

We practiced from a sitting position with a front bipod and rear "stump" rest from 331 to 620. He hit all 3 shots.



We practiced a standing shot using a post for his left hand and thumb for a shelf. He hit at 308 and 440 yards. Missed at 620 barely. This would only be used for a closer shot if needed of course.


We shot a lot of prone, quick drills. Deploy bipod, drop down, find target, dial, shoot. From 360 to 1030 yards.

And he shot my 7SS at 835 to finish the day. 184 Hyb @ 2916fps. This is the backup rifle. Woe be to the elk that stands in our way! Shots all impact about 4" high, and a hair right. But, group is about 4". I will take sub-half MOA from a guy who had never shot a scoped rifle past 50 yards before 2 weeks ago!
