Very nice, confirm a wild rangefinder? Have not seen one of those in quite a while.


What Jordan Smith call's a bazooka is a Wild rangefinder, capable of ranging farther than any laser rangefinder, I bought it about 10 years ago and have not seen another one for sale since, one of my friends picked up a Barr & Stroud about 3 years ago but they are impossible to find now too.
Great rangefinder but not nearly as portable as a laser.

Today I just remembered my best handgun shot. Back in the 1990's I used to go rabbit hunting a lot. The only firearm I used was my Freedom Arms .454. Any jack rabbit within about 110-115 yards was dead meat. Like the snipers say, "One shot one kill."

One time I saw one sitting up clear on the otherside of a "bowl" near Christmas VAlley, Oregon. I put the crosshair about a full rabbit above the center of the jack. The 300 grain XTP center punched its chest. I stepped it off at 206 long steps.

John Lachuck once told me I was the best shot he ever hunted with. Sometime we get lucky.

October 10 1995 8:10 AM. Just got back to the USA from Europe. Lived there 10 years while in the military.

Shot him at Battle mountain, Wyoming. 5 miles from the truck! Heck, what did I know right?
When I shot him he was three draws away 778 yards. 378 WBY with 270 Hornady SP at 3185 fps. Load was 118 gr of Norma MRP (same as factory loads BTW) One shot and down. Still have the bullet 88% weight retention.

What a humping job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never want to do it again!

Is that Jimmy's rifle or did he help you build it? I remember when you guys would go up to the Uintas for really LR 'chucks.
