Just some Billy goat targets way out there... with no backdrop... shooting off a cliff... in 15-20 mph winds. “Hold all of the mils.”

@6mm_shooter, @sstacllc said he put these targets out specifically for you. 😘

Range finders can be great tools for many reasons. I think that if you use them to train your knowledge of distance they can be one of the most valuable tools out there. Too often do we rely on technology to do our job for us. If we can start to step back and see technology as more of a training tool and rely on our own intuition we will be far more successful.

A couple shots in the wind the other day at 1525yd with the grb creedmoor. I had @backcountrymulies callin the wind and impacts. #cpr #dialitup #sendit #windcalls #creedscantgothatfar #nikonoptics #scopecamadapter #gunwerks #grb #blackx1000 #gotit

Easily the most productive precision rifle range session I've ever had. Couldn't have been more #switchedon. After confirming zero and ranging, I worked calling wind at 400, 500, 650 and 850 yards. All my calls were close to perfect. 850 took me a few rounds to dial in but afterwards I was dead on. Then I moved to holdovers. Confirmed my holds for 4, 5, and 650 easy. Decided to attempt 850. My Nightforce ATACR only has 30 minutes in the reticle so I had to dial 5 minutes of elevation and hold the remaining 30. For those that understand, you know holding 30 minutes of elevation and 9 minutes of wind is the least easiest thing in the world. Out of 11 rounds, I missed maybe 3 just off the right side. Couldn't have been more ecstatic. I then put together some rapid"ish" strings of fire at 5 and 650 before ending with some tripod work. Hits at 4, 5, and 650 yards were perfect so I decided to try 850. Again, 850 yards off a tripod, holding 9 minutes of wind is nowhere near easy. I missed only 2 out of 8. Was so happy I packed up and called it early so as to not become counterproductive. Out of 120 rounds, I only had approx 15 misses. I'll take it #allday. This @lanxangtactical VL34 rifle and @supparm K9-S suppressor combination is unbeatable. Thank you to Eddie Noland for having me out to train. If you haven't checked out Arena Training Facility, I can't recommend it enough.
Today's soundtrack: "Edge of The Earth" off 30 Seconds to Mars' phenomenal debut album. This is pre-emo, pre-sell out 30 Seconds, when they were an incredible rock band for a very brief period. Everything since has lacked creativity and originality.

Always an opportunity to get some training in.

Checking the wind with the @kestrelballistics Elite 5700 while feeding the ducks with the little ones... ;)

How do you learn to call wind? You get on the glass and do it! #windcalls #precisionlongrange #subquarter #tboxbarrels #glassthatshit #nctacticalsyndicate

What's the most wind you’ve ever held?

Coming from SoCal, James Jeffries shares his experience shooting in different elements he doesn't always get the opportunity to shoot at his local range. “That was the most wind I’ve ever held in my life, 5 mils.”

Weekends are a perfect time to hit the range and verify your data, but do you know that you can learn to read wind anywhere? Next time you're out, focus on a point in the distance and understand what the wind is doing to the trees, clouds, flags, or whatever you can see. Try to guess the wind speed at the target before you look at your Kestrel. The more you can subconsciously understand wind behavior, the better your long distance shooting will be.⠀
When in doubt, ask Rudy (seriously, he's a wizard)⠀

Practicing paper at 800 yards in hot, humid weather. Been a long time since my brass felt like gas gun brass coming out of the chamber. #hotlikelava #lavarocks #whyisitsohot #arizona #desertshooting

Teaching self wind calls through the scope and reading trace through the scope at 300 yds on B/C steel.

I was out doing some data collection yesterday with my new tikka t3x in 300 win mag and scored this 2nfd round hit at 1100 yards in some really stout wind. This was the first real long range shooting session have had this rifle out for and it's looming promising. Can't wait to really stretch it's legs. #gun #guns #gunfather #gunfanatics #gunporn #gunfu #gunsofinstagram #gunvideos #longrangeshooing #longrange #precision #precisionrifle #boltaction #precisionshooting #tikka #tikkat3x #300winmag #windcalls #ftr #prs #rangetime #bergerbullets #godeep #magnum #firearms #shooting #elr #extremelongrange #2a #america
