Sniping

Recommended Posts

Had a trip out yesterday afternoon with my old mate who used to be into long range shooting but hasn't fired a rifle in 5 years now , I managed to tempt him out for the day. Our plan was to hopefully get a shot at a fox but I never expected to see as many as we did ( 10 in total ) during daylight. 20200901_150324.jpg.934d3d6504865bcad67e8e2ae646a488.jpgWe set up watching the gorse patch opposite and it wasnt long before I spotted foxes. 1st fox he dropped at 375 yds followed by a 2nd at 525 yds 😁20200901_160022.jpg.00e61645415811fb94de26349f05354d.jpgA magpie joined the party and landed on top of a hawthorn bush at 315 yds and was duly vaporized 👍 We then moved down the valley and spotted 2 foxes on the far bank,  mate dropped 1 of them at 421 yds and the other scarpered , didnt pick this one as was starting to get dark and was a bit of a retrieve.20200901_175622.jpg.6927e46ca21bb95a8f8339e5e83cd124.jpgA great afternoon with 3 foxes and a magpie bagged with plenty more foxes to go at , need another session soon.

Great shooting 

lve just started to practice long range on metal gongs 300/400/500 and I’m that bad 

I’m sticking to 200/250 for foxes 

what range have you got the 243 zerod at ? 
I use Streloc but struggle to get to grips with it ( thick old git )

He has the .243 zeroed at 100 yds  , not sure which software he uses to dial though.

I use Strelok Pro along with my chrono on tablet, its a cracking app once you've got it all set up right, barrel length twist rate velocity etc etc. He's bang on with help to, replies to emails within 24 hours, good ole Boris.

I use a bendy straw on a bamboo kebab stick as a wind vane and an anenometer too, but even with all the setup it helps, but nothing beats good old practice for long range, just wish I had some chance to get out, winters coming yippee 😜
