    I shot the images. I was using a Canon Rebel XT and a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L lens.

    I was shooting in Aperature priority and adjusting the depth of field/shutter,and ISO as needed.

    Thanks.

    Looks like Oregon to me! If it is, I was just up there at the snowline last week. Good times!

    Yup. It's Oregon. Just South East of Estacada (sp?) Great place to shoot.

    We even got the local Ranger to fire a couple of shots.

    I could tell by the fact that you said it was this weekend and the rain/snow mix in many of the pictures. It was pretty nasty at a couple points yesterday here in Salem.

    Great pictures. By the way, what's your Canon's maximum shutter speed? I'm asking because I use an old Nikon FM2 (with a max shutter speed of 1/4000), and I'm thinking of taking some 800 ISO film the next time I go shooting with my .45-owning uncle. By my mental calculations, I should be able to turn the bullet into a streak only a few inches long if I time the shot correctly.

    That .308 looks like a V-51. Boy, I want one of those.

    Thanks.

    I don't know how many Db the can saves, but I will tell you it's pretty quiet. The action slapping back and forth is louder than the gunshot.

    It's 1/4000. You better take a metric butt load of film to capture a bullet in flight. I just get lucky when it happens to me and shot approx 1000 frames this weekend.

    Great shots! :)

    Kids (of all ages) and machineguns are always a fun time.

    Great shots. Canon shooter myself (and I've got the lens you were using), but never taken the camera down to the range. It's clearly time to rectify that.

    Nice pix; along with some very nice hardware. I also liked how you effectively silenced the local Forest Ranger. Good work.

    I like the pits up there as well. It is too bad that there is such a shortage of public rifle ranges in the area. I am glad that I am not the only one who does not let the weather get in the way. Next time I am up there and see that type of hardware, I will stop by and introduce myself (If that is alright?).

    You look to be right on the money about f/2.8 or f/4, but judging by the muzzle flash photos and the one that caught a bullet in flight, I'm assuming the shutter speed was a lot faster than 1/250 or 1/500. Remember that the Canon digitals are frequently shockingly good at surprisingly high ISO. There's no reason to believe these aren't shutter speeds around 1/2000 or 1/4000.
