Tyler @ DDR,
Well its been just under a year since I took delivery on 2 DDR customized rifles and scopes and I could not be happier! The less than 8 pound, 338-06 with the compact Nightforce scope has turned this weapon into a great 600+- back pack rifle, but let's talk about the real long distance machine.
The accuracy of the custom 7mm Magnum topped with the 5.5-22x50mm Nightforce scope and your customized hand loads is absolutely stunning and a whole lot of fun! After your initial training, in March 2014 I atteneded a very prestigious shooting school in South Texas that specializes in training shooters the intricacies of long range shooting distances as well as advanced training for our USA military. After the event I was told by retired Sniper Instructors that your setup was the single most accurate long range 7MM Magnum rifle they had ever seen come thru their place!! In July at another local long distance shooting school here in Montana I became of the "One Mile Shooter Club" after successfully connecting on wheel barrow rock targets at over 1,800 yards!
More importantly, I also applied the firearms in the real world of hunting. In July I took a great Zimbabwe stallion Zebra with the 338-06 at 514 yards.
In October a good Marco Polo Sheep and Siberian Ibex in Tajikistan under 500 yards with the 7mm Magnum and this last Fall, three big 6x6 bull Elk in our guiding camp with Niki and a couple clients. All over 500 yards. Simply put, I can't wait for my next hunt!
As I say, lots of fun but when hunting it's a must for the shooter to know their equipment and capabilities and to hunt and shoot responsibly at big game targets.
Thanks so much for your integrity, honesty, customer service and extreme DDR accuracy!

"I never thought I could shoot long distances, accurately and consistently until I got my shooting system from Dead Down Range. The work Tyler did to my rifle, and teaching me to use the whole system was outstanding! I have recommended DDR to everyone I know with a passion for long range shooting!"

Affordable, accurate, simply the best long range rifles on the market. Being an Outfitter I rely on Dead Down Range Rifles for my clients when the Long Shot is the only way to harvest the animal.
Best rifle setup a guy could ask for! First time shooting my 300 RUM and hit a jug of water at 1198 yards off a bipod! Can't ask for more in my opinion. Great customer service to boot!
Tyler is a rock star when it comes to long range rifles. No one better! My daughter at age 10 took a long range shooting lesson from DDR when she picked up her new rifle, since then she has taken multiple animals over 400 yards! My wife and I have also been very successful with our new DDR setup!
Had a 300 ultra mag built and could not ask for a better rifle! Best rifles out there! Thanks again.
