16 Nov Next Long Range Shot
We are working on a new rifle project and new cart
ridge for extreme long range shooting. We plan to hit a target at 5500 yards next spring.
While pushing the targets farther and farther out is alot of fun, we are also looking for ways to get repeatability in the 2 mile range. To that end we are working on a new .375 cartridge that will keep the projectile supersonic past 3600 yards. A major challenge with shooting these ranges is that a bullet’s stability often suffers as it transitions from supersonic to subsonic velocity. We expect 3600 feet per second or better with a 350 to 400 grain projectile, which will stay supersonic past 3600 yards.
We just got the BAT action and our 34″ Bartlein barrel in for this project. We will post updates as things progress. No technical data will be given until we have actual velocity and field results.
