Thank you Rex for the great information on God, Guns, and Guitars! Quick question... I found myself calculating a firing solution the other day in which I had overhead cover to deal with/avoid. A bit of an odd shot. Think of power lines. :) After a lot of searching, I could not find a calculator that produces this number. It looks as if many old school hunters used to look at mid range height, but this seems to be a rough number only viable at shorter ranges. Others state that you look at drop at 2/3 of the range. The only resource I found that definitively listed maximum ordinate for some specific loads is: www.hpbt.org/articles/308.doc I don't see anything in JBM. I don't remember you going through this in Sniper 101. Am I missing something? Thanks.
For sale is a custom 7-300 win mag custom ELR rifle with Bartlein barrel and Mirage ULR chassis made by PMAC precision. Rifle comes as a package ready to go which includes a scope, custom load, confirmed DOPE to 2,550 yds, dies, bullets brass - everything you need to hit targets to 2,500 +. Avoid the 4-6 month wait for a custom builder. It has approximately 400 rounds down the tube. I took the ELR3000 course with this rifle and reliably hit targets to 2,551 (~2/5 were hits). I have a custom hand load as well as a load worked up by Copper Creek Cartridge that is sub 0.5 MOA and can be ordered direct from CCC if you are not a reloader. This is the load I used to hit out to 2,551 yds. Asking $5,995 for everything plus shipping (rifle alone is $6,700 + 6 month wait when new). I added everything up and it is well over $10,000 for everything included. Details on what is included in ELR package (happy to discuss any and all details by phone): Rifle: The rifle is a PMAC precision 7-300 win mag ( https://www.pmacprecision.com/rifle-packages ). It is essentially the same as Rex's and was built about the same time. I have heard that a rifle similarly configured has been used in field in limited circles. It has a 26 inch Bartlein heavy profile (MTU contour) barrel with a 1:8 inch twist. Action is a Stiller TAC 300 with 30 MOA scope rail. Trigger is a Jewell. Muzzle brake is an APA Gen II Fat Bastard. The chassis is a Mirage ULR chassis with an upgraded adjustable stock (the stock is awesome and has a lot of adjustment). Scope: IOR Recon 1 with 40 MM main tube. The scope tracks 100% on paper (see pics) and all the way out to 2,500 yds +. Has German Schott glass. It comes with a 40 MM American Rifle Co. 30 MOA M10 QD-L scope base ($300), a 40 MM bubble level ($34), Tenebreax cover for ocular ($38) and an objective sunshade. Reloading equipment: - Redding 7/300 win mag die set - 150 Nosler 300 win mag virgin cases - 120 RWS 300 win mag brass (virgin): this is arguably the very best 300 win mag brass and is very expensive ($41/20 and only available from one location). - 200 once fired Hornady cases from Copper Creek Cartridge loads - 150 195 gr Berger EOL bullets - 100 197 gr Sierra bullets - 100 Hornady 180 gr bullets Data/resources: - Custom Ballistic XLR ballistic data package with DOPE past 1 Mile (includes many tertiary ballistic data) - Confirmed DOPE to 2,500 https://i.imgur.com/Tg5wi2A.jpg
