    I have tried twice at hitting this golf ball at 400 yards, I thought for sure I had it today but the wind blew my whole rifle off course, not just the bullet!

    30-06 in 35mph Wind

    The last time I tried, (yesterday,) I took a shot at 300 yards then decided to take a shot at the golf ball at 400. I forgot to hold low because my fouled bore makes the bullet go higher. The shot high center of the target is where I hit yesterday.

    Oh well, live and learn.

    [EDIT] Oh! I like after the shot and the golf ball is bouncing all around. I was wondering what that was at first. :p
