And one kill...or hit at 1200 yards with my custom 6.5 Creedmoor. I started at 300 then 500, 600, 800 then 1,000...which I missed the first time and the second ugh...but figured it out and hit with the third. I didn't see my miss the first time but did the second and was able to make adjustment. I then dialed up the dope for 1200 and for the first time ever hit it with my first shot!

Before that though I had worked on getting my AR 6.5 CM load development finished and Chrono'd. Then I went to the long range range. I started with my AR first and starting at 300 hit low on the silhouette...I adjusted and took it to 500 yards. I hit WAY low. Wow! So I started reworking my velocity on shooter and took it from 2855 down to 2300 before I got the elevation right...man was I confused! First I wondered if my Chrono was screwed up but screwed up to the tune of 500fps? No way...so I decided to look at my scope....AGH!!!!!! It's MOA!!! I bought it at SWFA and they had two on their sample list...one MOA and one Mil/Mil. I ask for the Mil/Mil and he brought the MOA...ugh...I've had it for a couple of months but never noticed because I never shot it LR because my focus had been on my custom. Once I realized it was MOA and made the adjustments I took it out to 800yds! What a complete dummy I am! I didn't think to check and make sure it was Mil/Mil...

You sure are learning lessons the hard way.

But congrats on the hits. No many of us can do that.
