Re: I almost got to use my load at 800 yds yesterday.
right in the line of fire? no. however, if i was a safe distance above the hunter in which case the bullet has no chance of coming close to him while in flight, then yes. much like shooting over a road, i wont do it if the road is in line, but i have taken shots at game in which i'm high enough to shoot over the road, including the power lines beside it, into fields on the other side.
If it were easy, I wouldn't be doing it.
