  2. NO WIND

  3. The only hand loads you make are in front of the computer

  4. What scope what magnification

  5. Is this with a 20MOA picatinny? Great Videos Doc!

  6. But will it knock the elk down at that distance??

  7. Did I miss it…or did he NOT SAY WEAPON, CALABER, AMMO MANUFACTURE. Seems like we are suppose to guess…3006, 223, 22….winchester, MOSSBERG….did I miss it? …

    Nice! Very good on trigger operation.
    I wouldn't change my M1A for anything.

  9. A sporting hunter wouldn't shoot any medium or large game at ranges better than 400 yds. And 400 yds is pushing the envelope.
    Thats a hail-mary shot that shouldn't even be considered.

  10. What's was your moa at 1000yards

  11. I'm an novice to shooting anything but air and soda cans….how do u know the yardage of the steel u set up….i wanna sight in my ar15 and my 308 and don't know how to gauge the distances

  12. looks like the meat is in the freezer. Good job, it's always fun to load then shoot and see how awesome you are.

  13. 308 is the best cartridge,,,,,,,it can do it all

    I like the 6.5 creedmoor personally and I would shoot an elk at 1200 if it was still and there was no wind but a 308 poops out way worse then a creedmoor so I wouldn't shoot an elk past 600

  15. I want to get a good camera for filming my long range shots what kind do you use in this video. great video by the way!

  16. I love 308 for hunting, I shoot a Savage doe :). A lot of my friends knock it saying it's not powerful enough but I shut them up when I took a big ol buck at just under 600yards. They think that since it has lower recoil that it not powerful enough so they shoot 30-06 and one even shoots a 300 win mag for deer lol. I could see 300 win mag for larger game like moose or big bears but for deer? Anyway, they are stubborn and refuse to acknowledge that with modern propellants the 30-06 can only achieve like 150fps more velocity max, but compared to 308 the 30-06 recoil is much worse. 308 ammo is also cheaper, it's slightly more accurate, and the action is shorter too which means a lighter rifle. I'm done arguing with them lol

  17. I love the fact that you're shooting a 308. Everybody likes to bash the 308 nowadays. I love my 308 and it continues to be my go to All Purpose rifle!

  18. what projectiles are you loading in your hand loads

  19. it was 6 clicks right after the first shot.

  20. Like other have said, I think something a bit more powerful would be needed to ensure a clean kill on elk at 1000yds. If using a 308 cal., the max I would shoot an elk is 400 yds.

    what make is your rifle? i wanted to buy a very good 308 and i was thinking of getting sako. but it has problem ejecting casing right into scope according to reviews? whats the best 308 rifles?!

  22. any one else see the bullet at 1:30

  23. h1z1 <3 😀

  24. Have you chronographed these loads? Can you tell us bullet weight, velocity, and energy please?

  25. very good, but would be great if you let us know bullet grain and powder load.

  26. Hammah Department

    Did your buddy thru a Shaka lol aloha from Hawaii great shooting man

  27. isellcatlitter

    thats a really great humane shot on steel…. not so much on a game animal…. you can get really close to elk….like 25 yards…many bow hunters get them under 15 yards.

  28. 308 to 1000 is impressive !
    Don't think I'd try that yardage with that caliber for elk though

    Hey bro, great video. Informative without being boring. Very enjoyable. I think the .308 is going to be the go to round depending what happens with the election. I know things can go either way and the .30-06 is a fantastic round as well. The thing is that there is just so much .308 ammo out there and rounds out there to reload at an effective cost. If people are not already reloading, they need to start now. Thanks again for a great video. Be safe, shoot straight and God bless.

  30. Any info on your loads?

  31. What range will you zero that rifle at for taking either Whitetail or Elk?
    Good shooting, and thumbs up for the video.

  32. wish I had somewhere around here to shoot that far. it be fun

  33. To take Elk at 1000 yards, you should use something more than a 308 Win. I was in the Army and we considered the 7.62x51mm NATO 800 meter round, yes the 308 Win has more pressure, but for taking Elk at that distance you should be using a 300 Win Mag to ensure a clean kill.

  34. Hey that's not 1000 yrs. looks more like 600 maybe…

  35. If you pay close enough attention to the video you can see a slight clear trail following the bullet. I don't know how often that is caught on film but this is pretty cool.

    Hey DocTacDad-
    Do you have an after market match barrel (i.e. Krieger) on it? Is it a Remington 700bdl build? Was it a factory rifle out of the box or did you have it built up by a precision rifle gunsmith? Are you using 168gr or 175gr Sierra Match Kings or something else in your hand loads? How many inches is the steel plate (20" like standard ones)?

  37. your a hell of a shot bud. what scope are you using

  38. were did you get your ballistic info. from the scope manual?

  39. if that first shot was cold bore at 500…wow

    i really need to skip the PC upgrade and buy a press and die…and stick my nikon fail BDC on my marlin or 22 or something.
    ive got an older ruger m77 mk2 in 308 that ive always gotten good results with factory ammo….

    1000 yard gun…probably not unless i find the god hand load. ..but 500 in north east montana is a common deer shot.
    ive hit targets out to 300…however, of course, when hunting their is always a 45 mph wind…and id rather just be closer if i can.

    montana aint all mountians folks. ..but its a lot of snow and wind….60 mph wind is VERY common.
    its fun to TRY to hit things in that weather, especially with 22s. "curve the bullet"

  40. paralaxa? Pocasí? Vítr?

  41. 1000Yards? is 755m? 12,7mm is gun

  42. I have a Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 in .308 Win, with a synthetic stock. The barrel is 20 inch and NOT free floating. Would I be able to put the stock you have in the vid on my gun?

  43. Rifle asmr pls
