Last week my buddy Chris Ellis stopped by. Chris does media relations work for the Freedom Group and Timney Triggers. He was headed off on a pronghorn hunt and had with him a Dakota model 10. He wanted to set the zero for long range. He fired a three-shot group at 100 yards using Remington AccuTips and it was a neat little 1/2 inch cluster.
Using the Sierra Infinity program we calculated where he needed to sight-in for a maximum point blank range on a six inch target. His next group was another half-inch cluster as was the one I fired. That rifle would flat shoot. (It also kicked like the devil. It’s a 7mm Remington Magnum and only weighs about 6 pounds.)
Chris sent me this photo the other day. He took this nice speed goat at a bit over 350 yards in a 15 mph wind. Not a bad shot but with a rifle that costs $ 4000 +, you ought to be able to shoot good. (As a side note; Chris, you need to lose those cheap camo sun glasses on your next hunt.)
