Finally did drop confirmations beyond 1K today with the rear-grip 7mm LRM.
Only picture I took of steel was at 500 yards which was of a 3-shot group using my trusty bi-pod and small field bag.    Group was just under 1.5"
When I was shooting at 1440 yards the conditions were switchy, so nothing real tight, but about an hour later I shot at 1350 yards and had two not quite on top of one but the splashes were overlapping and then with a double at the very center.  
Wish I could repeat at will the groups I did at 1350 yards todayLocoBandito
All in all a good day and now all of my brass has been once fired and annealed. 
Want to get a calm time for one more drop confirmation before WTRC.
Dan also did drop confirmation out to 500 yards with the AR-Pistol (223 Remmy)
