Re: Farthest shot

Archery deer 42 paces. Furthest Archery groundhog (too dumb to duck) 60 paces. Prarie Dog 210 paces with Thompson Contender 223. Deer 220 paces with 30-06. But attempted a buck at around 500 last year with my 30 06. It stood there for 4 shots. I just ordered a 30-378, not sure of the scope yet, reading all that you folks have to offer and hopefully after this coming year of practice the buck will not have a chance to laugh at me next year.

Re: Farthest shot

whitetail buck last year at 500 meters.
7X57 shooting a 140 sierra PH at about 2800fps.
Dropped at MY shot, after my buddy with a 7 mag missed him a couple times.
If you have a laser to find the range, you don't need a laser to shoot with.

Re: Farthest shot

I've taken several Bezoar Ibex, mostly females, in excess of 700 yards. My farthest Muley was taken at 640 yds.

Re: Farthest shot

You guys make me feel like a real amature!

My longest one-shot-kill was a nice antelope at 704 yards, using a .25-06 and Sierra 120 grain HPBT.

I was really proud of that, until I read about these one-mile shots!!

Re: Farthest shot

My best shot to date is 660 yards on a woodchuck. Killed it with my 22 CHeetah MK 1 pushing a 52gr berger bullet at 4280 FPS. Looking thru my Swarovski 6 to 24 X 50 scope.

I was hopefull a deer would step out this past season at the 750 yard mark, but no such luck. I killed my buck at 420 yards and my doe at 400 yards on a flat out run. Used my 300 win mag looking through my Schmidt & Bender 4 to 16 X 50 PM II scope.

Re: Farthest shot

My furthest successful shot on a deer was about 750 yards. I was a 1LT in the Army, and was running a 106mm recoilless rifle range at Camp A.P. Hill, VA. A doe had the bad luck of stepping out next to some APC hulls that were pre-ranged at 750 yards. I tried to "bark" her to get some usable meat, but she pretty much looked like she'd gone thru a giant food processor. My longest sporting rifle shot was only about 325 yards at a mule deer in 1994.
