Was this a requirement? I did not see it in the job description or application to participate in this particular segment of the shooting sports. LOL

Re: Sweet!

You might be on to something there lol. Maybe there should be a set standerd of accuracy you must consistently stay within when shooting over 1000 yards before you can offer your input on things in this section.

Maybe, but an arbitrary 1000 yd minimum is a good start. What I do know is there's nothing like taking that shot and waiting six seconds before you see the puff of dirt on the side of the mountain; or trying to shoot a target that's way beyond your rangefinder and having to resort to maps to figure out the distance. All fun!!

Re: Sweet!

Sharps man, the answer is nobody. Not until there are guided projectiles. Even a guided system probably would not be that accurate EVERY time.

Re: Sweet!

Augustus,

Are you and Joe still shooting together? Last time I talked with Joe, he told me you guys were getting some cold bore hits at 2,750 yards with your 375's.
