Figured out a spot on the property that I can shoot to half mile the other day making my 735 yard plate now 878 yards. I have to shoot from the sitting pos with bipod extended all the way out(Harris 25c) and use my rear bag on my leg.  Was able to put my first 3 rounds on steel.  Have another spot I can set up for 1115 yards but would have to put the target on the timber land south of my place and Im sure it would get stolen.  Figured out another spot to get out to a mile but same senerio.    Any tips for theft proof targets? Would be nice not having to leave home to practice

Did a little shooting today at 1580 and 1740. Conditions were good for shooting but poor for spotting hits. Solo shooting can be tough.

That's a good looking spot!

Do you have a spotting scope?

Learned something today I thought Id share.  Decided to shim and bed my rail.  Have 20 moa but wanted it 35 moa.    20 moa is 1/3 of 1 degree.  With 6 rail thats .035 shim. Doing the math backwards .0029 per inch of rail is 10 moa.   With the .024 shim I made should give me around 14 moa gain.  Going to test it before I bed it and will report back. FWIW my rail is 6.375 long. 

This should give me close to 70 moa of dial with 100 yards zero

I'm thinking your on track.

15 moa = .25 degrees

Tan .25 = X / 6.375

X = .028

But furthest forward edge of shim will be less than 6.375 - mite even be close to screw hole so adjust calculations to actual ?
