    WOW!!!

    Only thing that I don't like is how they talk about how it took 50ish shots per dog. I mean, I have no idea what goes into shooting that far, and I think a dog at that range is absolutely insane, but it just seems to me like if you shoot enough, you are bound to hit something. If you sprayed a spot with a machine gun, and hit something, does that make it an accurate shot?

    And what is with that scope mount???? Does it really have to be that high for those shots?

    But despite my complaining, I am impressed. That is some mighty fine shooting.

    That scope mount was to provide enough cant to shoot 5000 yards. They needed 420 MOA of cant in the base. The scope needs to be high enough so that the barrel is not in the scope's view. At over 4000 yards, the .30 caliber bullet would be too slow for an ethical kill of even a prairie dog.

    I know the mount had to be canted a whole lot, I just didn't think it needed to be THAT high to do it.

    And with just a quick calculation with 180g 300 win mag rounds I use (I'm sure there's were heavier but I can't recall) and at 5000 yards it still hits with 134fpe. At 4000 yards it's 150fpe. Sure, it isn't a whole lot, but it is about as much as a .22lr at the muzzle. And that is plenty for a groundhog.
