Where does LR stop and Extreme LR begin? In your opinion
Just curious to get some opinions here on what you think. It is super mountainous here where I live and shots over 300 yards are hard to get. To most people here 300 yards is a long shot and 500 is just insane. I actually only have 2 spots to shoot over 400 yards here. One place to around 800 and one to 1050. But the farthest I have shot is around 800 so far. To me I call long range past 500 and extreme past about 900
So what's your opinion about categorizing distances??
Re: Where does LR stop and Extreme LR begin? In your opinion
I guess I would say for a general statement that 500 yards begins long range then at 1000 or 1200 ELR kicks in. But with todays ever growing technology and available gear, LR and ELR are moving out from where it was just a few years ago. There are several shooter shooting regularly past 2000 yards these days with amazing accuracy.
Another thing to consider when looking to set criteria for these types of shots is to consider what we are shooting.
I feel 1000 yards for my 338 is no big deal at all and almost a waste of ammo. But if I was shooting a smaller rifle like a 223 and doing reasonably well at 1000 I would say that is ELR for a 223. The guys on here shooting 22's at 500, well I am fine calling that a ERL task.
