OK, so my original plan didn’t work out. The Weatherby was an awesome hunting rifle, but the combination of the rifle and the optic didn’t quite work for long range work. What did work amazingly well, however, was the Remington 700 AAC-SD with a Primary Arms scope. Using some 200 grain handloads I was able to ring the gong at the end of the range — 1,000 full yards away. You have no idea how happy it makes me to finally report on a gun that I’ve confirmed to be a 1,000 yard gun. And to confirm that on such a beautiful day was a pure joy.
