A normal Sunday morning range trip turned into bliss for me today. I went wanting to run some various 9mm self defense rounds off to see what works, what don't. Upon pulling into the driveway I hear the most thunderous bang i've ever heard. I thought someone is shooting something BIG.
So I park and gather my stuff out of the trunk and head down to the range. All along I keep hearing this thunderous bang. Got to the range, picked out a table and seen a guy shooting a big rifle with a big scope and a bi-pod on it. He had a buddy with a spotters scope sitting next to him. Interested I struck up conversation with them. It was a .338 Lapua, wow
The range I shoot at is only a 100 yard range but here is the kicker. He was shooting at quarters
on top of dow rods at 100 yards!
He asked me if I wanted to take a crack, how could I say NO? He let me fire off a round, it was amazing even though I didn't hit a quarter. I tried to give the gent a 10 dollar bill because I know those rounds are seriously expernsive but he wouldn't have none of it.
We shot the bull for about an hour, about guns in general and exchanged info. I think I made a friend today
, that's rare for me as I don't get out alot.
