Re: .243 Steyer
First off welcome to LRH!
Long range is classified different by everyone on this site.
A few examples.
#1 I classify long distance for me to be at 500 to 1000 yards but thats my personal classification.
#2 goodgrouper, brian b and 7mmrhb classify it at longer distances like 1200 to 2000 yards just a guess since they shoot alot at further distances than myself.
#3 others here will have a 400 yard limit for shots and some will be 600 and yet others 1000 yards to be considered long range. It boils down to your personal feelings as to how long long range is. If your not comfortable shooting a critter past 350 yards then that certainly is long range in your book. 180 yards on a fox is a long shot for some folks I know around here and for others I know it's a chip shot.
You are the determinig factor on how long a shot has to be before it's considered long range. What I'm saying is not everyone has the same definition of long range.
I hope this helps you more than it confuses you!
Looks like you made a good shot on that fox. What kind of bullet were you using??
I used to own a steyr in 25/06 and still kick myself in the arse for parting with it. I'm trying to buy it back from him and I think I may be wearing him down.
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?
