Cold Bore 375 Cheytac at 2477 Yards

From Maverick Stroud- Want to brag on my friend Kelly Barbee for a second. Having zero experience on my 375 cheytac he laid down and i gave him his holds for a 2477 yard shot on a 1.5 moa plate. He tagged his cold bore shot on video in a 11 mph effective wind catching the left edge of the plate. Well done on your longest shot kelly! And thank you Robert Vestal for building an absolute laser!!

6.5 Creedmoor at a Mile

Nathan Clowers used his Vestal’s Gunsmithing 6.5 Creedmoor to put several good hits on the 1 mile plate at Bangsteel Longrange Shooting School near Wytheville, VA. The rifle is meticulously built and a real beauty. Nathan used Hornady factory ammo to get the job done (140 grain ELD-M). Awesome job, Nathan!
