Well I ended up taking 1st place in the shoot! I was a little intimidated at first being the youngest guy there, but I know my ability to shoot and confident in my rifle and loads. Was also my first formal competition, so I was also very nervous. It was in 4 different stages from 200-1100 yards. Was a dang good time with a bunch of great guys. Definitely be doing it again. I do think I need a different caliber though, 7-10 shot strings in 3 and 4 minutes on a 7-300 win mag gets the barrel SMOKING HOT, literally could smell the steel, and fry bacon and eggs on my barrel... I bet my throat didnt like it much either. The MK4 8-25x performed beautifully in the tracking department, not 1 issue with all the up and down dialing. So now I'm contemplating what to build for these type shoots...Cause at this rate my 7-300 will be toast in a year haha. But I tell you what, those 180g ELDMs at 3000fps sure sliced through the little wind that we had. I did not touch my windage once, which was pretty cool, because all the 6.5 CM guys were putting 2-3 MOA at 1000-1100 lol. Been thinking of a new build for competitions and will either go with a 284 Win on a 700 long action, or a 280 Rem, 28" heavy stainless 8 twist Bartlein with the new stainless material for 1.5-2x the barrel life which should be good for 3500-4000 rounds, 4 port muzzle brake,180g ELDMs at 2800-2900fps, McMillan A5 stock, and a Leupold VX3 LR 6-20x.
