    I've shot out around the 1400 yard mark. It is do-able.
    As I mentioned earlier, where I hunt there are a lot of terrain features that affect wind direction, and we have considerable movement in the air current blowing up or down hill, depending on time of day.
    I would think that if I were in an area where the wind was pretty calm and more predictable than here, a 1450 yard shot could be done with a fair amount of certainty.

    He already claims 1450, he is talking about a mile. Please read the original post.

    Guess it all boils down to what the confidence level is for a given shot for an individual, and what percentage is acceptable. For a really nice whitetail I like greater than 80% with a 12" target area. I define my confidence level by the aggregate of all aspects. Wind, load, rest, mirage, etc. I have not yet seen this level at these ranges. I doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't exist, but I would be very skeptical at 1 mile.

    All good. Just don't want the OP to get any "good" ideas.
