This has been an interesting thread! Some ways of looking at things I'd never considered before.

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.

Extreme Long range for me is where the conditions can't be seen or predictable , then that's too far to shoot for me.
