    We took out C grunt today and banged on the mile. I did my semi annual gun cleaning so it took Mark his 5th shot to get on at a mile. But he banged it and I banged it again then again with 6.5CM factory ammo. Not sure how many rounds it took. Not a crazy amount though and lit it up.

    C popped it with both 6.5 and 300WM. Good to have him out. Good dude. He just needed a spotter.

    Good day at the range.

    Had a great day in the desert yesterday with Mark and Pappa. We decided to start at a mile, go big or go home I guess. Took a few rounds to foul the barrel on the 300s but after that it was on. Wind was a little tricky but those 300s cut through it pretty well.

    The 6.5 Creedmoors took longer to get on target. Issue was our ballistic calculators were off by about 3 mils. Once we figured out the drop, something like 24.5 mils for Pappa's 147 ELD-Ms and 25 mils for my 140 ELD-M they were on. Wind holds were easily double that of the 300s. I got on target at a mile on my 10th shot. Pappa got on around 6 or 7 with his 6.5.

    Mark also made a 1350 yard shot with the 308 on his 4th or 5th shot I believe.

    The Magneetospeed target hot indicators are a god send at distance, especially with the smaller calibers. We could spot hits with the 300s easily at 1300 and a mile through the spotter. 6.5 on the other hand would have been a lot harder without the led lights.

    I also decided I need a 300.

    1300 yard target through the spotter.

    No dude is going to get shot in the chest at 300 yards and look down and say "What is that, a 3 MOA group?"

    The most difficult part of making hits with 6.5 is that my scope dialed up to 20 mils then I had to hold over the other 4.5 mil then add wind and your holding off in space. I hate that stuff.

    The clean barrel on the bolt guns slowed us up for 3-4 rounds. I was honestly anxious about shooting the mile again. We were able to get back on it though.
