    As you all know I am a gun nut, well, I have been messing around with long range shooting, 400, 600 and 800 yards.

    Well, recently I was shooting with a friend and he said it would be cool if he could find a mile range to shoot at. My 800 yard target was half way in a two mile section, with my bench in the middle of our mile.
    Needless to say, I was able to get a mile target set up to shoot at.

    The first time it was kind of a crap shoot. Then we went back, adjusted our scope mounts, made faster bullets and messed with out ballistic tables. The second time, I hit the target 7 times. This was with a .243.

    I just swapped out my barrel to a 6.5 Creedmoor and I was wanting to know if anyone had a 1000 yard rifle that wanted to try a mile?

    Let me know

    Great shooting out of you! Never shot those distances, Longest I have ever tried was 600 on iron sights with 5.56 and it was a mixed bag, mostly a bag of misses!
