6mm Dasher... Sounds fast. Apparently perfect for shooting mice at 600 yards.

I was shooting the .223 Weatherby at the range once under ideal weather conditions and got a group of ten that could be covered by a quarter; the wife of a friend was looking over my shoulder and asked how I could be sure all ten shots went through that ragged hole.:icon_neutral:

Imagine how much tighter the grouping would have been if he were shooting a 1911! :wink:

Third of an inch (dime-sized) group at 600yds for 5rds, eh?

I've done three-fourths of an inch 3-4rd groups, somewhat more than just occasionally, at 300yds. But, 600yds is rough (for me, at least). 1000yds, even worse. That pulse and breathing thing that occurs with most of us is a real booger at greater distances, something that no mere ultralight trigger's gonna fool. Ooof.

:yup: Impressive marksmanship. And, no doubt, on a sweet bolt-action.

I once built a gun in 300 WSM that shot at 3/8s of an inch at both 100 and 200 yards (it opened up a little beyond that) and I figured that was just buying the right parts fitting them well and a whole lot of luck. that kind of group at 600 yds is way beyond anything my skills could manage. Consider me humbled!
