    Well I took a day off and got to spend my morning doing some LR shooting again at 700/800/1000 yards. Brought my Savage 110 My previous best 10-shot group had been well over 6", but today I must have been "in the zone". 5.53" 10-shot group at 1000. Not Guineas material but I'm still happy with the results so I had to share! Load used was a Berger 300gr Match Hybrid OTM, seated to an OAL of 3.792 in Nosler brass hitting a tad over 2700 at the muzzle. Last time I used factory 285gr ELD loads from Hornady, but in the months in between I had developed this Berger load and man did it pay off. My optic was at 24x, (6-24 Viper PST). Probably going to be replacing this soon because I want an MOA scope on this rifle.
    I also brought my Ruger 6973 in 6.5 Creed as well and got some "plinking" done with it at 700/800. I wasn't happy with my groups but atleast I was on paper most of the day.
    All in all though I am SUPER pleased and today has been a great day!

    I would love to shoot at those kind of distances. Maybe one day I will have a chance. That 1000 yard group is damn impressive.

    Thank you all for the comments. I was really happy to see myself get under 6" as that has been a goal for the last few outings. Being as I don't live out west in the larger more open states, my options for shooting at that range are pretty spread apart so I can't do it as often as I like. For only getting out at that distance once a month or so I am progressing very well. I have to give a lot of credit to the rifle too though; that Savage 110 is an amazing performer. I have maybe $2000 Into the entire setup including the optic and in the accuracy department its on par with guys rigs costing much more. Real comfortable to shoot as well; I don't find myself having to reposition the rifle on my shoulder for comfort even after extended shooting sessions. I want to change the glass on it eventually but the problem is all of the new optics I like cost as much as the rifle did when new so the last two times I set out to buy a new premium optic I ended up bringing home new rifles instead lol.

    Congratulations on a fine day at the range, real fine. Not sure how far I would need to travel to find 1,000 yards of unobstructed range. :)

    I'm assuming you are shooting a 338 Lapua?

    Which model 110 is the rifle? pictures ?

    We have targets set up on Public grazing land out to 1 mile. We have the targets set up starting at close range through the various distances in between. I shoot my Sharps .45-110-550 at the 600 yd steel.:)

    5.5" at 1000 yards is just a hair over .5 MOA.

    Incredible shooting DeadEye!

    Misplaced the < symbol i recon. Should have been .6"< to read correctly.

    No doubt good accuracy.
