Thread: 1000 yard - 270 ..... just

    1000 yard - 270 ..... just

    Having a crack at 1000 yards with the Tikka 270. Not much of a show of marksmanship but there was one hit, just on the very edge. The plate is 12"x12" and the scope is a Vx2 3-9x40 which really made keeping on target difficult. The wind reading and adjusting needing a lot more practice.

    Bullets are 135 Sierra HPBT

    Well done getting on the steel
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    good stuff vapour. How much did you have to allow for the wind at that range with 135's?

    I started around 5 MOA guessing around 6mph for right to left wind - but ended up down to about 0.5 moa - when we got back to target it had died right down to almost nothing. I suspect my poi is a bit rightish at that range perhaps?

    Next time you put the target out hang some ribbon next to it to get an idea of the wind at target.
