Long Range Shooting for Beginners

Long Range Shooting for Beginners



alright hey everybody friends welcome to the free white north today we're going to be doing some shooting with my 6.5 Creedmoor remington 5r Gen 2 barreled action that sits inside a MDT or modular driven technologies ACC chassis which is their adjustable core competition chassis the cool thing with the chassis is that it's it's super heavy it allows for a really really stable tight platform for long distance shooting it's a really great chassis and it's a lot of the part that I like the most about it it's made in Canada it's a high quality product that's all milled aluminum high strength stuff amazing amazing product it's very modular it can be modified to whatever weight you want to think straight out of the package it's something like I can't even remember right now I'll have to put the overlay down under the video with the specs but there's been lots of reviews on the ACC but I think it comes in around like 13 14 pounds I think by the time you put the barreled action and the Rings the MOA pick rail and the scope I think it comes in around 18 or so pounds typically speaking depending on the setup that you have most guys could unload it up as well on top of that to close to 30 pounds I think 28 or so it's about the max with all the different weights you can attach in a channel underneath the barrel which is free floated and then you can also have em lock weights that they sell as well that you can and then a buttstock weight that goes into the actual skeletonized buttstock and it's an amazing amazing system so you can really get it up there and wait we're with a 65 Creedmoor I mean it's not a heavy round to begin with but you can feel it you basically like shooting a 22 all moose or something like that or a 17 HMR as far as felt recoil it's barely minimal so we're gonna do today I've set up some targets downrange about 600 or 650 yards or so unfortunately I don't have a very good rangefinder it only goes to about 500 yards so I can't really quite honestly say how far it is I think it's the last time we measured it out it's about 650 we're gonna try to hit some Steel's I have these steel targets that I've got range rabid comms is another local range supply company the actually manufacturing house and plasma cut all their AR 500 target steel and they provide all the mounting hardware and the chain and whatever else when you order it so I was able to come up and with a really really simple cheap mounting solution even though they do have a bunch of stuff you can get I was just being super cheap because I was like wow I can make a little sawhorse type stand for basically like 10 bucks so I did and I'll show you guys all that and how that works but it's honestly I've got three steel targets set up on it plus I've got two more stringers up for for backing for paper targets if I wanted to see what kind of groupings I was getting at extended range but really this is just meant for my crown land or public land we call it Crown land here in Canada it's basically publicly accessible and you can shoot up anywhere now via these public land use zone as much as you want so trouble is sometimes because it's so densely forested and it's just basically Bush out here trying to find an area that's been somewhat clear-cut from past forestry activity and other activity that you can actually see out and it's accessible out to five six hundred yards so luckily enough there's an access road that I take that gets me there and so I was able to drop my stuff off and then do a little bit of target reading so hopefully you enjoy the video this gotta be gonna be a mix of a review on the actual rifle itself the chassis maybe even the scope so far it's actually range rabbit comm is the company they actually supplied to my home range for hip stick and steel javelin shooting and USPSA so they supply all those targets for our home club and they've been amazing they stand really well to a lot of pounding that the that range sees a lot of actions hosts a lot of competitions practice nice late nights for all the different shooting disciplines and it does quite well so I had no trouble investing few hundred dollars into some quality steel so yeah let's take a look and see how we do all right let me tell you how I built this guy this is very simple straightforward I got a set of these brackets for making sawhorses I think I paid six or seven dollars for Mike and tyre I think they're $6.99 or Saturday nine and basically just cut some lumber to size whatever I thought was good I think this is about four feet and I think I've got basically just five and a half feet of wood and was enough to mount these guys initially it just intended it for these two plates but then I ended up getting a small six-inch place my wife actually want to add a steel challenge Nationals here in Canada so we figured I just add some chain to it and then go from there so yeah I just basically just added some some bolts for strength so that there's some structural rigidity there I can tighten it up loosen up ever I want I takes apart real easy for for transportation same thing here I mean you can mount them either way you can mount them forward or backward whatever you'd like very simple solution I think is maybe about 10 15 bucks in mounting hardware and lumber and that's about it so overall very happy with with this setup I think it's gonna last me a long time and if not I can just build another one for 20 30 bucks at most and I have to replace every single piece of hardware and some chain and maybe some bolts I accidentally shoot a little high or do whatever so overall highly recommended I did have some progress pictures on my Instagram I might post them in this video it's very simple process just basically cut the four pieces of lumber on the sides which is basically just system for holding some cardboard back for for some paper targets if I wanted this distance you know anything over 200 yards have a target for shooting our home club has a range with 200 yards of the steel Gong on it and we're not allowed to bring our own steel to shoot there for safety reasons so basically this guy's good enough for anything 200 plus for me and that's what I'm gonna be using it for so right now I think I was shooting about between 550 and 650 today not exactly certain but ya know and I think next time around I'm gonna put up a paper target here and see what my groupings are cuz right now yeah that's it's hard to tell with with the amount of shots I took where they all landed so as you can see here this is my MDT setup ACC chassis with a with a Remington 700 v origin 2 barrel it is a fluted barrel it's it's a five-hour tactical 1/2 a twist and it sits really nicely in this MBT chassis I did end up going with their vertical grip and I have upgraded to a trigger tech trigger obviously we're safe here right the bolt is not even in the firearm I've taken it out but I wanted to put on a safe just in case I ended up modifying their cheek rest a little bit ended up putting some foam and then this I saw this camel fabric and I was like ok well might as well put that over the cheek rest phone so it doesn't get all sweaty and greasy for my face so that was like a five dollar DIY project in the backyard with a beer in my hand took about 15 minutes the nice thing about this the skeletonized buttstock is that it has all the adjustments that you need for the length of pull cheek weld Heights all that stuff so I've got an adjusted airlie well for myself and then the awesome thing is that right away converts any bolt-action Remington 700 or there's I mean they'd they make these 40 cos they make them 4 X bolts they make them for all sorts of stuff I'm not sure actually at the ACC might be available just for the tikka and then REM 700 and a couple others but they have a whole bunch of other chassis systems that work on a variety of rifles I've even have a 22 Series I believe and then I mounted my MD T 20m away rail underneath in a vortex Diamondback tactical six 224 and fifty objective lens it's it's a great scope honestly for the price I think I've paid about 550 bucks board and it's been great I didn't want to invest too much right off the bat because I'm just getting started in this game and yeah I just figured that I lean into it a little bit not just kind of ease my way into it not go full-bore right off the bat you see me swinging the camera wildly it's probably because there's a bunch of horse flies and stuff and being in the bush I'm gonna get eaten alive if I don't so at the end of the year I put on muzzle device song I think it's a surefire or something like that I'll have to look it up and put it over late on the video but that is effectively just a muzzle brake for the 65 Creedmoor actually helps quite a bit with the recoil and redirects the gases in an appropriate way so that is the gig that is the rig that's the setup been shooting at a little bit to have another ton of time behind the trigger on it's been doing some driver at home but hopefully you guys can see it in action right now alright so we're gonna take a poke at one of these targets 650 yards or so and see if we can him hit the target at 650 yards sometimes it felt like an accident other times it felt deliberate I was calling my own shot in my own head and going okay I'm gonna go for the left target and then I hit it and I go they do that all right you never really know like I'm unfairly a nice little longer distance shooting game and you know a lot of guys a lot of me 650 is not that long of a distance but for me it is I've never really shot anything of that distance before so this is literally my first crack at it I have some fairly decent groupies back it's I think I was getting about 5.5 or 0.57 5-inch groupings on on a three shot group it's pretty decent I mean I was able to hit all three of the targets that I had set up down there at the same range they're kind of different sizes one's a 12-inch heart attack target with like I think a 2-inch Center which if you'd gone that's a 2-inch hit at 650 that's pretty that's pretty accurate nothing to sneeze at and there's a 6-inch target a 10-inch target they're all AR 500 steel frame range rabbit so they're pretty good one cool thing actually show you this one of the exchange boards in Canada it's a big gun gun community channel it's called Canadian gun nuts comm if you ever been on it but guy was selling this guy and it's a full Bluetooth low power wind meter and it's a wind meter for ballistic precision shooting so it has temperature has wind reading that'll give you if you pointed the direction of the target that you're going to be shooting at it pairs nicely with your smartphone which is great it gives you atmospheric pressure temperature wind factor basically anything you'd ever need to know for a ballistic calculation and then you pair that with your phone which I'm actually recording on our asset won't be able to show you but I'll cut some video later and of basically what it looks like is uui use the Hornady for Dolph app it's like four DOF I think they call it for Dolph and it's a new ballistic calculation method they invented they came up with it's a little bit different than the ballistic coefficient which you still can't use that app the cool thing is with this one I'm able to pair it with that app and I think it works with a couple other ones but I prefer to use the horn d1 on the line maybe n just brand loyal or something once you pair it with the phone and and pair the meter inside the app it automatically loads in all that atmospheric data into the app and calculates to the finest point zero one of milliradian of scope adjustment so I had my scope zeroed and I had my turrets reset to zero so I was able to lock it in and then I was able to here just take my reading real quick I think it took about fifteen seconds enter in the distance but I thought it was at and basically just start shooting so as soon as i justed my turrets I was pretty well close so I think I was a little bit off on my distance calculation but I was able to kind of spot my hits and see where I was if I was going high or to the left or and then I was able to just pair this guy and I'm looking for my next projects gonna be try to find a way to mount this to my to my chassis somehow or to my phone case or just so I could have it all together and then I don't have to hold it a separate device in my hand while I'm trying to do the calculations so that'll be a little side project I might come up with I don't know if I have some time I'll work on it otherwise that's pretty much it so yeah that's that's it for today I hope you guys enjoyed the video at least it was maybe somewhat entertaining maybe a little bit informative and if you find any of these things useful doesn't let me know in the channel comments otherwise so thanks for watching this head of a mixed video it's kind of a review of the MVP chassis like I mentioned range rabbit targets my own target hangers that I made as well as a little bit of the setup that I did forward the rifle itself so everything that went into it including the sculpt amount the MOA rail the surefire procom so really at the end of the day I really only showed the the portion of the video where I was shooting where I was actually hitting the targets like I mentioned earlier yeah this is my first time ever shooting anything over 200 yards so I just want to emphasize that what you saw was the best of so it was a collection of only the hits I think I only shot about 10 rounds that day I hit about 4 or 5 so worked out okay but at 650 yards I was pretty impressed that I was actually actually even able to hit anything I was using my ballistic calculator I was using my wind meter all those different things but I was able to get on target fairly easily which I was actually honestly surprised up in the future I'm gonna try and do some more practice to to get a little bit better with my greeting of wind to understand kind of the adjustments downrange two-thirds of the way down whatever it might be obviously doing a wind reading where you're shooting from is part of the calculation but it's really more important kind of what's happening down the path the bullet travels so so anyway I hope you enjoyed the video it's it's something that I'm gonna try to improve upon try to get a little bit better at my distance shooting discipline and then I'll try to document it as much as I can and hopefully cause some information along but definitely if you're interested into getting into it I highly recommend the MDT jassi's they have a whole selection of them anything from the ECC which is they're kind of their most expensive ones meant for the competition use down to the the LSS the hs3 which is kind of their hunter sniper system makalah which is really meant it's the beat it's a composite stock meant to be used in the field as a hunting rifle or as a precision shooting platform as well so they have a whole bunch of stuff in there they have the LSS as well which is really nice so definitely check them out check out vortex optics and range rapid comm
