Me and the guys went to ASR yesterday and I felt like screwing around with the camera. More towards the end of the day, the bullet trace was very easily visible.

200, 400 & 600 yrd steel.

Best viewed in 720p or 1080p in full screen mode.

You can generally see it well with any kind of spotting scope, but yesterday I had my camera and it actually picks it up.

Cool video, the light was definitely just right. As much as I love Angeles, those targets at 600 are way too big and close to have much of a challenge these days, though I really love those 400 yard swingers.

I was up in the high desert this weekend and took a 12x12 plate I made and set up from mountain top to mountain top for some 1200 yard shooting. Extremely fun and surprisingly easy since there was almost no wind. Could spot trails a bit but the sun was almost right overhead and made it a bit tough.

I totally agree on the 600 yrd steel being too close. Once you have your dope dialed in, it should be an automatic hit (at least with match ammo). Last week they had a 6" target setup at 500 yrds that was fun to shoot as well.

We are a mail order business only as for right now. We should have a booth in the upcoming gun shows though :)

Man, I wish I had a range close by that would have steel out that far. Nice shooting.

Your camera picked that up, cool.
I remember when I was in the USMC and trained recruits how to shoot, we would squat down behind them with our binos and watch where the rounds would trace. It wasn't uncommon to hear someone yell "3 clicks left Private, 3 clicks left" when they were shooting rapid fire on qualification day.

The times I have found it really visible are usually early in the AM and towards dark, in the PM, something with the sun? :shrug:

Yea 6" at 500 yard is better. But yea, when you're dialed in and using match ammo or hand loads (as I do) something closer to 1–1/2 MOA target size at distance is where it's at.

I was hitting the 12x12 plate at 1240 yards almost every time, so having a 6x6 plate would have been a nice challenge. (Though it was a perfect day with pretty much no wind, the interesting thing is that I had to hold about 3.5 mils left though.... Not sure why. Wind might have picked up at the target.)

It's amazing that .308 at 1240 yards only has around 450 ft-lbs of energy haha, as opposed to it having around 1250 ft-lbs at 600 yards. And at 1200 yards you're aiming around 627 inches high (!!!!!) and 600 is only 90 inches. .308 REALLY drops off once you get out there.

That is so cool; after a while the bullets looks to be falling down out of a distance. That’s a very far distance for firing. I liked the place, where exactly is this place situated. I might come over to try some shots around here.

A co worker of mine was complaining about how he had shot right at a deer and completely missed....shooting uphill ~ 45 degrees, I tried to explain ballistics to him, but he did not get it... I showed him this video and he understood

interesting to see how much flatter the .300WM is than the .308

For reference sake, the first shot on the red circle is with .308, the rest are with .300WM. We concentrated on the large black rectangle since it was the loudest report back of all the 600 yard targets. We wanted to see if the video could pick up the delay in hearing the steel come back.

Round for the .300WM was Hornady 208 AMAX with 71.2gr RL22. MV ~2970fps
