I love long range shooting. I went to the range yesterday and took along a Savage b-mag, 17wsm, just to see how it would do. I was shooting a 12”x12” steel plate at 550 yards. At that range, the round had the trajectory of a rainbow. Once I found the correct hold-over, it hit fairly consistently. I was quite surprised! Even the rounds that misssed were extremely close.

Anyone else push their 17wsm’s for distance?

Not the WSM, but when I shoot my .17 HMR at “distance“ of 200 yards, wind is a REAL factor. I can dial in drop, but hits will be randomly left or right, if I don’t get the wind just right.
