Since I got my HF 28 Nosler I have wanted to give it a go at hitting a steel target at one Mile.
Really is kinda hard to find a safe place to easily shoot that far and also see bullet impact when you miss.
I am down in S Tx and after some scouting I found a road to shoot one mile away on.
Set up a 24 inch sq plate at what the Sig Kilo said was 1760.3 and then used a app on my phone to verify and it said exactly 1 mile.
I am shooting the 195gr Bergers from a 28 inch 1-8 twist barrel that Derrick at Horizon throated for that bullet so take note it's not a standard factory chamber.
Anyway I used my IPhone attached to a Vortex Razor to video each shot so I could replay if my impact could not be seen thru my scope or the other spotter.
I had 3 guys observing as well. Wind was right to left varying from 3.5-6.5 MPH and I dialed a little too much wind missing slightly to the right on the first two shots.
3rd Round was just right of center and slightly high but I was just happy to be on steel.

Not many people can claim a one-mile hit. That's a pretty small target for that kind of range, too. Nice shooting!

Lots of variables have to line up for that to happen. Great shooting!

How much drop did you have with that?

It took 13.4 mil elevation. At its highest point the bullet would have cleared a 7 story building.
