Yep, The 240gr MK which I saw as a prototype at the silhouette internationals back a number of years ago. The bullet itself is a monster and takes an 8 twist. Note that he was also using Hogdon powder. The guys at Sierra make a fine bullet for sure. My guess would be that right now they hold more records than just about any bullet maker.

Nice congratulations from the previous record holder also.
What unbelievable shooting.
That's a sport that I would give my right arm to get into, but no chance in Minnesota, and I will bet that it cost a bundle of money to do it.

How much do these guys have to put into the guns etc. Ed and Bushy??

Eric,
I do not build BR guns so it is a guess. You might get started for about $7-8K doing a good bit of the work yourself and 10-12K if you hire it done. Even entry level BR shooters do not use the 700 action anymore, not even a sleeved 700 action. Now that Dakota bought Nesika, the price of poker went up on that baby. One thing though, the barrels are expensive and for a BR shooter only last about 500 shots more or less.

A site about Nesika and a world record;
www.nesika.com/winners-circle.html

By the by, the top BR shooters reload a bit different than we do as well. Note the comment about the cases being reloaded, I believe it was 58 times. Every case is matched to capacity and demision. The cases are lathe cut inside and out to insure uniform deminsions (including the body). Usually a practice session is shot with just 5 cases and a reloading bench at the range.

The guys that are bug nuts are the BR remfire guys. I corrisponded with the fellow that writes the remfire section for Precision Shooting for a couple of years. Certifiable.... If they thought a blessing by the Pope would help, off the ammo would go..... Very Happy
Ed

Being very familiar with wide open spaces and large tracts of flat land I can really appreciate what kind of accomplishment that is.

I would like to get the full story on the gun and optics used.

I am always envious of those types of shots. When we had first entered Afghanistan, I remember reading an article about a Canadian Sniper that broke the sniper kill distance of that held by Marine Corps Sniper Hatcock - long shooters are amazing.

Their persona is awesome as well - My Uncle had a friend who had been a sniper in Vietnam - my Uncle asked him one day if he had ever missed, the guy did not skip a beat, he said "Yeah, I hit a guy in the neck once instead of his head." I remember that day and I have remembered his words ever since.
