Re: Does Long Range have to be long distance?

200 yards or 1300 yards shot on deer are both considered long range. It depends on condition, bullet and gun. Some gun effectively send bullets to kill elk at 1300 yards and some can only go to about 600 yards to meet the minimum impact velocity for expansion of the bullet and energy of course. No expansion usually results in wounded animal.

For target shooting, some go over 2500 yards.

What are we gonna say?

"Oh I shoot long range, do you?"
"Why yes I do..."
"Well how far?"
"Up to 400 yards and you?"
"900 Yards."
"Whaaaa???"

My answer is 200 yards is a long distance and is considered long range. We all have our comfortable long range shooting due to equipment we have.

Re: Does Long Range have to be long distance?

The definition of Long Range probably coincides with where you hunt and the distances you are use too.

Where I used to hunt 150 yds was considered long. Where I hunt now I consider 300 yds a long but good percentage shot for me if everything is perfect. Anything over this and I will pass until I get better.

300 to alot of Hunters on this board is a chip shot. Any distance that gets you out of your comfort zone is Long Range in my book.

In that case then 1500 yards and over is considered long range to many of those long range shooters. LOL!

Some are accurate beyond 2000 yards with the right stuff.

LONG RANGE....is the distance that the shooter isn't 100% certain that the shot can be put where it's intended to be put!! SIMPLE!!

About 99.5% of shooters fall into this category!!
