Here is the pic of my gun and the trophy.
The guns are from back to front a Rem XP 100 in 243 cal. I borrowed it for the shoot. The black gun is a Thor in 6.5x57R by Tanfoglio, as far as I know it is the only one of its kind in America. The rest is a SEB. Yes they are real good. I've met Sebastian Lambang and he does quality work. If your in the market for a rest, this is as good as it gets. My scopes are a Leupold Mark IV and a proto type made by Muller.
I received cash. Plus:
1 Leupold Vari X 3 4.5-14 scope, valued over $500.
3 boxes of Berger bullets, about $100
1 certificate for a new installed muzzle break, valued $200
A certificate for 50% off Serra bullets up to a max of $5,000 retail
I also have a handful hats, cleaning stuff, custom finishing goodies, software and misc stuff that I received as door prizes.
Here is my one thought on the subject of 1,000 yard shooting: Anyone can do it. It's not that hard and it takes less than an hour to learn the basics. Mastering it takes longer, but a person who wants to do it can without a lot of effort. I think that I can teach a person and have them hitting steel at 1,000 in less than 1hr of instruction and shooting. IF the new shooter is a women, I can probably teach her in about a half hour.
