    Long Range Steel Targets - Ring That Bell

    First of many things for me. After studying the Long Range Video by @Norway so much the disc is almost worn through, and picking your guys brains. Here's my first attempt at shooting my lovely new steel target. First time shooting past 500 yards. First video too. A bit of a roughie but it gets the job done. Thanks to everyone who's helped me get this far.

    Excellent
    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

    Do not worry about that low 850 shot, it is withing normal variation and can be caused by "anything".
    If it consistently repeats, it is common that the ballistic predicitons can be off. Expect 1-2 clicks low 600-900'ish, and 2-4 clicks low at 800-1000'ish. The problem will be more pronounced if you are shooting a slow bullet, less if fast (this is due how the Bc numbers are calculated). With a Cd it shouldn't be that.
