Re: Farthest shot

I read with interest (and a bit of envy)all these good long range shots.would any one class my 220yard shot on a rabbit with a .22 rimfire as long range.

Re: Farthest shot

I noticed somebody made a nice shot on an Elk at 2890 yards. I was wondering what level of accuracy is possible at this range? Specifically group size and first round hit percentage in the vitals (first shot after the spotter shots). Also, a lot of the 1000 yard targets I see posted on the net show the group a considerable distance from the bullseye. Since they're shooting for groups only hitting the bullseye isn't important of course, but some of these groups are several feet away from the bull. I'm assuming that they were shooting the first round at or near the bullseye and for whatever reason the group ended up way off the bull. That's somewhat discouraging for a hunter considering that these targets are from competition shooters.

Re: Farthest shot

I believe the 2890 yd elk was hit 3 out of 5 shots, that's pretty good shooting.
The groups being a couple feet from the bullseye in competition shooting is because of a change in some condition and in 1000 yd B/R competition there is nobody spotting for the shooter during the record string, and nobody spotting the shots from pits like military type shooting. In long range hunting there is and always should be one or more spotters.

Re: Farthest shot

My longest hit on an inanimate target was 1890yds with a heavy barreled .243. I was using the Sierra 107gr VLD bullets.
Deer - 575yds (30-06)
Coyote - 480yds (.243)
Gopher - 470yds (.243)
Gopher - 210yds (.22 rimfire)

* A gopher is a ground squirrel and is about a half to a third the size of a prairie dog.
