This year we start to shoot our new LR challenge: 1000 m with 308W. Target 1 MOA (bubble or ceramic 300x300 mm). The rule is simple - prone position, bipod and fire. Third (and less) round (CBS incl.) - Cupronickel badge, less then 10 rnds - the brass one :)





Quite a fan. :)

Awesome!

Is that a Leupold on the SV98?

I've got a Mark 4, but I've heard NF has a little better glass. I also have Bushnell Elite 4200 that I like very much.

Elbow pads are a good idea too!

Yes, Mk4 8,5-25x50 instead "official" Hyperon. I heard opposite opinion: Leo brighter then NF. My old eyes doesn't seen difference.

Elbow pads helps relax right hand, it's doesn't slight outside.

Wow! Nice shooting! I would like to try some long range stuff sometime!

What kind of gun is that on the right? Looks like an adjustable stock of some kind. Is that a Tikka?
