I took a friend of mine shooting today to help him get all of the data for a new rifle. He's just getting started shooting long range and asked for a little help verifying his velocity, making sure his zero was accurate and figuring out the wind.
After we had all of the data and he was a little more confident in the rifle we started stretching out the shots. I had painted a face on the 832 yard target and when he put two in the nose I bet him $20 that he couldn't put his next two shots in the eyes.

I lost.

He was shooting a 6.5x47 Lapua. He's had it for a while but today was the first time our schedules synced up and could shoot beyond 500.

Joe is already pretty handy with a rifle. This is his first custom rifle built for long range.
He also shot a nice 6", 4 shot group at 1044 yards.
The shooting beyond that was brutal with the wind and mirage.

That should have said a 9" group not 6". Still pretty impressive in the conditions today.
