Re: how often "honestly" do most here shoot past 500 yards

I shoot about 1000-1500 centerfire rounds/year. My shooting for load development is done at 200 yards. Most of my long range practice is done at 500 yards at a range close to my house. I have limited access to 1000 yards, but it's not very convenient. I shoot 500-1000 yards a few weeks a year combined with my hunting out west. The 500 yard practice seems to pay off and enable fairly straight forward extrapolation with good success out to 1000 yards when I shoot and hunt out west.

    Judging from the replies, apparently everybody but me is regularly shooting 800 yards or better. In addition, nearly everyone is from Montana, Wyoming, Texas, New Mexico, or Nebraska. For those that give their location, only CenterShot is from a midwestern state (I assume Tyler Kemp is from K.C. region since he makes the videos for G.A. Precision; and, I have no idea where Bozeangelas is - a reference to Bozeman, maybe?).

    I have not made it past 700yds as of yet. My summer range (wich consists of a farm trail out in the sticks can take me to 800yds. But the 800yd mark is just off the road and I am not too comfortable with that. My winter range(s), which are harvested fields, I could get 1200yds in some of them. I have not played that game as ot yet though. I mostly hang out arounds the 350-600yd mark. Now that I am understanding this game alot more, I am going to start poking out there.

    Bozeangeles is Bozeman Mt. with a Southern Californian, Hollywood surfer type infestation problem.
    kinda like liberal wolves actually. They're flooding out of Cali & ruining Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, & Utah with no end in site, & no way to keep them in check


    P.S. you forgot Oregon

    Are you kiddin me? No way, they've been taking over Oregon for YEARS. We are a border state.

    My reference to forgetting Oregon was to natty. He named most all the places folks replied from, except Oregon.

    Send them home before they do to your state what they did to Colorado.

    Then pray for "the big one"... .
