Pictured is the actual target used, showing a F class 1000 yard center 1/2 MOA target, which would be a 1/4 MOA target at 2000 yards, the disc indicate the actual impact of each bullet at the distance indicated and is the best shot placement out of 5 shots fired at each yardage with no sighters allowed! Also NO wind flags were used, only the red range flag was flying, all other wind was calculated using natural indicators like mirage and leaves grass movement etc.
Jeff impacted the X ring at 1700, 1800 and the 9 ring at 1900 and 2000 yards. Pictured is Jeff’s certificate from the club for this huge achievement in shooting! Jeff used the #2240 Sierra MatchKing 220 gr. chambered in 300 Remington Ultra Mag. Jeff is also the winner of last year’s Longest Shot Match making it further out then anyone that day to 1600 yards with 9.5 minutes of wind on the turrets, also with that same bullet. Jeff is also last years Indiana State Long Range Season Champion at 1000 yards shooting in F Class open with the same bullet and cartridge!
