I have a bunch of 300wm loaded up and ready to fly..
So far ive been able to figure the drop out to 1000yds, hitting a 16" stump at 908yds while propped up on a 4wheeler :D

This weekend we are goin to start at 1000yds and go back till we run out of room, or ammo.

I have a 1760yds marked off on my map, and to my buddys driveway its exactly 2000yds. Furthest we can go is roughly 1900yds and more and we will have to setup in the road haha

Guess we will see what happens and ill report back monday :lol4:

i've shot at a skeet at 500 yrs and barely missed. was shooting a friends gun so dont ask me wat it was or how it was set up
Well that's surely close enough to be called a hit considering a skeet is what, 3.5"?

haha great, now im gonna be setting skeet up and useing them for targets. Thanks for the idea!

Ive hit targets out at 1000 or so with a M-16A3. It was in Iraq from an overwatch position so it was perfectly clear. We implied a lot of kentucky windage haha. EDIT that was with open sights. some of us had 3x trigicon ACOGs but those were way off most of the time.

i missed a deer at 10 paces once... propped up on a tree... :scratch:

oh wait, you said "hits"...

cant say i have ever taken a shot over 100... furthest i have ever killed a deer was about 65. all my hunts have been short range. that will change this year i think...

About 90-100 miles, but there was GPS involved.


As far as smooth bore, 2000 yards with a M1A2 Abrams (with 120 mm main gun) while it was moving @ 20 mph in smoke and dust!

Shoulder fired small arms @ 400yrds open sights ( i though that was pretty far!) You guys are animals. I would like to shoot someone's 1000 yrd rifle one day on a range though not at deer. Thats too damn far to drag 'em.
