What are we calling extreme long range? over 1000? 1200? mile?

I was wondering that as well, I'd think over 1k would do it, but them again, I'm a .308 shooter

Re:

Over 1,000 yards.

I'll be working up some guidelines for this new subforum over the next few days.

One thing I'll say right now though:

We don't want this sub-forum to be used at all for neophyte questions.

By the way, if when you start a thread, it helps in many ways to spell out the question in the thread/topic title -- as I have edited this one.

Thanks...Long Range is like "Being Rich". All relative for every individual. I'm happy with 1,000 and if that is now "EXTREME" I know where to look.

Thanks for narrowing it down and expecting some clear information/direction on the thread titles.

Looking forward to consolidated data for us interested in the Extreme!! LOL

'bout time.. I miss all of the old 2000+ yard discussions from years past - like all the old time long rangers have moved on.
