    What gear?

    So, a random sunday thought, to promote some shit slinging.

    What would be the (yours) perfect system, for hitting a gong at 1000m, and reds at 500m.
    And i'm meaning, scope, stock, action, barrel, projectile, and brass.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds

    Well im pretty happy with my main rifle right now, 85 finnlight 270wsm, all as it came out of the factory apart from dpt overbarrel, VX6 3-18x44 CDS illuminated B&C, 150gr VLD @ 3070fps, norma brass. Longest shot on an animal so far 600 (bull tahr), can smash the 800 gong all day long and its only 10x10", pretty confident 1000 wouldnt pose any problems just havnt got a suitable place to set it up that far.
