Re: Farthest shot

Nice shooting guys. My longest hit on a gopher was 304 yards with 22LR. 653 Yards with 220 Swift improved, shooting 55gr V-max. Last season I shot a whitetail at 547 yards with 220 swift improved shooting 55gr seirra BTSP. The shot passed competely through despite hitting a rib on each side.

    Nothing like some of you guys, but here goes.
    Whitetail doe @ 426 yards 25-06
    Groundhog @ 514 with .308
    Groundhog @ 178 with 17HMR (rimfire)
    Crow @ 286 with .243

    Gave a groundhog a good scare with the 6.5 Gibbs I got from you at 735 yards. I just need more time with it.
