How far do you shoot?

I had a 338 Lapua built last year and I shoot 1k -1200 regularly. I have a 24" gong I had built and my goal is to get some hits on it at 1 mile+ Just wondering how far do you guys shoot and how big of target. I am hoping to try out the mile shot later this week

Re: How far do you shoot?

I get out about once a month and let the lead fly with my 300wsm. Usually out to 1k with a target that is 10"w 14"t. And the farthest I have made hits so far is at 1250yrds with my 300rum on a 18"x18" target.
