That is very good shooting. Isn't it what we are striving for????? I mean precision shooting. Placing a shot like that in the field is harder than some would be willing to try. I know it is messy, but if a shot like that is possible, and you have the ability why not?
I get people mad at me for taking 500+ yd shots that have cleanly killed elk and deer. Just cause they can't compriehend a persons ability to make such a shot doen't make it immposible. Being able to shoot better and further than everyone else is a awesome feeling.
