I got a text today from one of my customers that he was able to take a pronghorn today from long range! He shot it at a lasered 1030 yards!!! Amazing! This is the longest confirmed kill I have heard of with my ammo. There have been several in the 600 and 700 yard range, but never this far. Posted with permission.

Rifle- Custom 6.5-284 Norma
Ammo- 140 grain Berger VLD @ ~2950 fps.

Awesome.

What scope is that? Looks odd with a blue elevation turret.

Huskemaw Scopes have a blue turret most often. And I believe some after market turrets are blue colored.

Good shot by Chad's customer no doubt!

That is a great shot. What a poke with the 6.5x284.
