Ok, it wasn't that long range but for the first time in my life I connected on steel past 100yds. It was 275 to be exact. I was firing on a 4" circle with a orange stick on 3" target stuck to it. Months maybe years of research boiled in to a one hour session of steel slapping fun! As a novice I made a few mistakes but once corrected it on. My savage .243 predator with the swfa 3-9x42 seemed to be made for each other. Remington cor locts of the 100gr variety made this task too easy. I can't wait to stretch it out further now. What was a curiosity may have turned obsession.

I have heard many, many SS stories like yours in my tenure here and they NEVER get old. 

Good for you. Post pics of your rig if you want to. If you need help, let me know and I'll help you.  
If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

It is indeed fun.  Just wait till you push the target out far enough that you see the hit before you hear the hit, that's when you really get addicted.


Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

Well where i live in Mississippi its fairly difficult to find any range over 400. I would really like to though. Cheaptrick I have pics of my rig on the post "is swfa 3-9 using hd glass" just didn't want to post here and be redundant haha.
