Excellent shots, Frank! I've got about a hundred edited but I'll put just a handfull in for now. These are sized down to fit on the Hide, so if anyone wants a high res copy, send me an IM and I'll get it to you.

Its exciting to realize all the new data and techniques learned at this shoot, will be making its way down to the Industry and average shooter here, and expanding our capabilities even more! I wonder what we will be doing in 10 years with the pace the ELR growth we are seeing now!!!

Theses are are Golden days!!!

so what the angle on these shots? is it two miles horizontal or LOS?
I was eye-balling the elevation climb from the line to the upper target at about 500', but it could be significantly more than that. I assume they went with LOS but that's due to the FB post about the LRFs they used. If the elevation change was known, they for sure could have done the math to make it horizontal. Maybe Frank knows?

I did not run the angle but I am sure it had an impact on the elevation.

Listening, watching and seeing the results, the Elevation is a lot harder to nail down at this distance. That said, Robert and Manners really didn't depend on software, Robert had some numbers from Shooter, and I think Tom said he used Hornady 4DOF but I am not sure if it was that or Strelok as he really didn't are what he used, he just used a free program.

For the most part the finale targets averaged 6 degrees

I believe I saw on his Instagram that he used an app called "Shooter"? Was somewhat hard to tell so don't quote me on that.

Only 3 shooters hit at 2 miles, its an elimination competition if you dont qualify for the top 10 you dont shoot 2 miles,

All 3 hit with a 416 using Cutting Edge Bullets
What a difference a year makes. Only one shooter hit the ~2 mile plate last year. The conditions were pretty choice yesterday, but you still have to dope and make the shot. This newbie was impressed!

This is incorrect, Duncan Davis from Team J.J. Rock Co. was the first to hit the 2 mile with a .375 CT using a 400gr. Cutting Edge Laser.

We won’t hold it against you though Frank, a lot going on with people yelling about where you were standing, lol.

Anybody know what primers guys are using? Especially in the .416 Barrett? I am assuming GM215M, but just wanted to know if there were any other better options.

. We ran cci out of both guns, I have always used rws in the past but was seeing a pressure spike with them this year.
What was the starting BC of those 500gr 416's?
we used a g7 of 491 out of the bartlien gain twist and a g7 of 481 out of the K&p straight 10 twist barrel.


Thank you

Tom, did you run the Hornady app with the G1 drag? May I ask why the reason for two drag models? Thanks in advance for your reply.

All I have to say is in the shooting world this is about the coolest thing going right now. Can't imagine the expense of building the rifle and keeping loads feed to them.
