Is this fast enough to shoot at like 800 yards? Thanks for any input.

Exactly what caliber are we talking about and what are you trying to accomplish. Hunting or just target shooting. We need more info to help.

easily to 800. with that combo you have 1149 foot pounds still traveling 1755fps at 800. Now you will need 19.86 minutes to get there in your scope. Shouldn't be a problem with most scopes.

Make sure to hit bone at that impact velocity.
