Heck - I hope to see that age and be able to lift a gun!!!

I used to shoot competitive, but that is far beyond me.
Hats off. No matter what age. But it makes it even more impressive.

Impressive. He certainly set a goal to which any of us should aspire.

That's awesome shooting!
It will boost some interest in the 300 WSM for the long range shooters.

Likely - but it's seen pretty heavy use in 600 & 1000 yard BR matches almost since the cartridge was developed. One of those cartridges that takes easily to accuracy. I had one for quite a few years, and a fellow who competed in 1,000 yard BR gave me his load data, which I worked up to. My rifle wasn't as accurate as the shooter in the article, and I only took it to 600 yards, but it worked real well. I was using a 210 gr Berger VLD at about 2810 fps.

A local guy bought it from me a couple of years ago. He likes the rifle too. :)

A former owner of the Gunstop, a very popular and long standing shooting shop in the area competed with a 300 Win Mag. Was all the rage once upon a time. Record or no, congrats to your friend for still being in the game. Very cool! CL

Some amazing shooting and weather conditions as any wind change would of opened it up. Very nice

Guy,
I remember that rifle. As I recall, it was a Winchester M70. The wind can be tricky at 1K, even with those heavy high BC bullets.

Ya, it was a nice looking Winchester Model 70, 300 WSM. Real good rifle, but I wasn't using it much. This was taken years ago, on a backpack hunt for mule deer here in the Cascades.
