(Above:) Mike Zuba sent the above photos with a great write-up following their 2009 Wyoming Hunt...

"All were taken with my 7 Sundance MOA with a 8.5x25x 50 LR Lupy with a Varmint Hunter reticle, a Horus ASLI kit, with a 168g Berger VLD bullet pushed by H414 powder. A Muscle brake from Center Shot Rifles, forend from Bower Shooting Products(al bedded), Seekens picatinney base for bipod (which also has a hole for a sling or Harris style bipod), and a Rock Creek Barrels SOPMOD bipod. Sure did like the way it's feet grip into the ground to load up the bipod!

To help make my 'lucky' shots I also used a Krestrel 4000 weather station, Verizon HTC phone with Exbal ballistic software, Kahles binocs, Decot Hy-Wyd shooting glasses.. yellow for over cast days and 'rose' color for sunny days, Peltor Tac 6 hearing protection, Leica CRF 1200 Rangemaster, homemade rear shooting bag and an Eberlestock Dragonfly backpack to carry equipment and take out the meat. The biggest help came from all the IHMSA silhouette shooters over the last eight years with shooting and reloading tips. Not to mention all the time on the shooting range burning powder. Then the long range skills were started with the clinic that Ernie Bishop, Steve Hugel and Marc Sheehan put on in CO. Now I would recommend the MOA shoot with all the wealth of information from all the shooters there, not to mention shooting 'practice' at long ranges. Almost forgot to mention the antelope was shot at 180 yds and the mule deer at 562 yds. The 'lope dropped in its tracks and the deer was within 10 yds. of a little knoll he stepped onto so I could see him from across the coulee. Oh...BTW..

Mule deer is delicious!"

The gun is equipped with a Leupold 6.5x20 scope, and a Harris bipod. "The pic was shot after close to an hour stalk and shot at 405yds, he made a 10' circle, and dropped where I shot him".

My MOA is a 6.5-284, 17" barrel, Leupold 6.5-20 Vari-X 3 Scope, using a 140 Amax, I have taken 7 animals with that setup and really like the gun".
