    Film: 338LM practice

    Finally doing having some good days at the range again. Leaving all ballistic computers and working on getting the 338LM properly into my blood so to speak. As usual, repeating the basics...

    steven and Link like this.

    Nice shooting Thomas. Its always good when your groups are smaller than your crosshair You must have to wait a while in those conditions for the barrel to cool between strings
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    That 338 certainly shocks the steel. Do you get much mirage from your suppressor heating up? Awesome recoil absorption

    Norway, cool vid, tx for posting. Looks a bit chilly over there

    Could you pls explain a bit more about 2 things in the video:

    Techniques for recoil absorption
    Your body position behind the rifle, straight as opposed to angled
    Viva la Howa ! R.I.P. Toby
    Black rifles matter...

    I can do roughly 10 shots before the target dances too much in the mirage?
    Short answer, but straight is by far the best and most robust position to eliminate the negative effects of recoil.

    Interesting and informative,as usual.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    what type of suppressor is that?
    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    It is a Hausken. I think the model is called Whisper. Glad you found it useful.

    Very very cool. (literally and figuratively) Do you find it hard to get good trigger release with gloves on?
    It looks cold enough for skin to stick to exposed metal?
