Re: Longest shot +1500 yard hunting?
I hate to rain on your parade sir, but there is no man on this earth that has enough expertise and practice to ethically be shooting at game at 2980 yds. If I was ever stupid enough to try this and accidentally connected, I certainly would not get on a public forum and tell anybody about it.
I don't mean to stir up a stink but your statement about assuming there are folks that can defy gravity, still the winds, overcome ALL the velocity related problems, not to mention retained energy, human error, time of flight, an animal deciding to take one step after the bullet is on it's way, is laughable.
These sites are a lot like the spit and whittle clubs at the old country barber shops, one guy tells story and the next guy has to tell one that will top it. Pretty soon all reality is lost.
Do you really think you can advocate a discussion about shooting game animals at 2980 yds and warn everyone to fall in line and not mention the absurdity of such an endeavor. Get real.
So, I'm prepared to withstand the onslaught that is sure to come. He'll, I may even get banned, I really don't care but I can't sit and read such nonsense without saying something.
