Thanks for the comp, yes she shoots pretty good took her out over the weekend to eastern Washington Ellensburg area to stretch her legs she did good all the way out to 1370 yards

Yeah, I'm out of the Spanaway area. Zip code is Tacoma, so only a few miles away from you. Member out at Tacoma Sportsman and do most of my shooting out there. I've heard of people going out to Ellensburg area to shoot ELR, but never been there myself. Right now, I'm a little out of the zip code as I'm out playing in the BIG SAND BOX. Later on I'd love to get my 110BA (338LM) out to some much longer distances to shoot. Maybe post us some pics of the shoots out at Ellensburg. Enjoy that rifle!

been out to the sand box my self pm me when you get back there some places on the west side we can get out to 1600 yards or more.

Will do! Sounds great. Thus far I've gotten out to some of the Ft. Lewis 1000yd machine gun ranges during unit shoots and run my 338 at the longer silhouettes. Don't tell Range Control. :) Not any challenge really, but fun to shoot further out none the less.
