    I'm actually shooting a Sony HDR SR-11, but you probably don't care about the camera. The shot was taken with a custom 300 Rem Ultra Mag, but I will protect the innocent unless he wants to speak up and take credit for the "bullet shot". He also has more details on the gun than I can remember.

    Let's just say that we hope to have something further away in the near future.

    I'm shooting a custom built rem 700, 300 RUM, with a 28" kreiger barrel. it's all trued up, and shooting good. it has a nightforce 5.5-22 that sits on top. it shoots the 185gr bergers like a champ with 92 gr of RL25 under them.

    Nice shot! A 300 RUM on a Rock Chuck?! That poor little sucker never had a chance!

    I love seeing the vapor trail!

    Vapor trail is sweet to watch, but the best part is being able to review your shots in the field and having a spotter that can see exactly what is happening. Makes the hunting and shooting super enjoyable. Even though we sat for 2 hours to get that one shot on film and had to suffer through the mosquitoes. This is just a small sample of how bad the swarms that followed us around were. Yes, we had like half a can of spray on each.

    Yeh, where did that poor little chuck devote his life at? Was the shooter prone or from a bench? That really is a great shot. It remenids me of the Canadian sniper video from Afgahnastan.

    undisclosed location in Oregon

    He was prone from a bipod, and don't get me started on the "Canadian Snipers" just go to Snopes.com to read all about that.

    If you are asking if there is a problem with Canadian snipers then no there isn't at all, but those vids are not even close to Canadian snipers. They are cool no doubt but they are apparently from a Varmint Hunting DVD according to a few guys in this discussion on Snopes.com

    Still very cool and I don't mind having our video compared to them at all!
