Thread: PB shot

  1. #1

    PB shot

    Out a bit earlier this evening so I had a wander looking for a 500yd plus shot,I ranged a rabbit at 514yds,dialled in the clicks and missed a fraction over,had a feeling It was shooing 1 click high at 500yds which equals 50mm,Rabbit had its back to me ,weren't much of a target,knocked off 2 clicks and nailed it,I was opprox 50mm low on the shot placement so my hunch was right,it's amazing watching the strike from that range

    What round was that with? A 500 yard bunny is good going no matter what you're shooting!

    C/F rifles are an expensive rabbit control tool, but for the odd long shot, it's gotta be worth a try.

    I hope you collected up your rabbit pate!

    I carry a cushion thing I made,it serves 2 purposes,first is I use it to sit comfy on and second I can use it to put under the butt so to be real steady for long shots and it works a treat !have said this before,most shooters don't realise how accurate you can be at long range,I've only shot out to 1000yds,hopefully one day I will get to shoot further with the right calibre

    that is very good shooting, ive shot rabbits at 300yds but thats about my limit

    That's not your limit trust me,You need the right kit,you need target turrets and need to know your drops and elevation adjustments,also a rangefinder,get yourself a nice safe spot and put up a target and see for yourself !how about a 496yd crow

    Well done! I shot a bunny yesterday evening at 290 yards with the .204R - mind you, that was off sticks!

    Tikka Varmints can be 510mm or 600mm if yours is 600 then its 23 3/4" which would be better for 25-06.
