I can see where this is heading so I'm done.

Damn, can you imagine what this guy can do with a Scoped 416 Barrett??? Probably miss high intentionally so that the bullet can go all the way around the world and hit it on the second go around! LMAO!!!!!!

Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

Here is my 2 cents worth. I shot a Springbuck ranged at 380m (415 yards) with a sierra 100gr flatbase prohunter in 243 with a standard 3 - 9 x 40 scope from the fork of a tree. Not so sure I would have the balls to try it again with that equipment. Bullet was found beautifully mushroomed under the skin on the other side. It is not in the same league as you other chaps but I am proud of it!

Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

Not exactly sure on the distance. It was pre laser rangefinder days. I was shooting a 7mm Rem Mag with 154gr Hornady spire point flat base bullets (probably 3175fps or so). I was at around 5500ft elevation and shooting down into the head of a canyon. I was using my duplex reticle as a range finder (changing the magnification to figure the distance). I used a protractor with a paperclip to find the angle. It took me 15 minutes to decide the deer I was looking at was indeed a buck. It took me another 15 minutes to decide it was 32degrees down, and I needed to aim 120" above to make a hit. I always kept that rifle sighted in to hit 2.5" (the length of an empty 7mm RM cartridge) high at 100yds (this would mean a sight in distance of around 260yds).

The shot was somewhere around 875yds, my bullet struck a few inches below my aimpoint and took the top of the buck's heart off. He was a 34.5" spread 4x4 with real short tines.

Here we go again with the negative comments. I guess it is beyond you two (X3M, NONYA business) that there just might be a remote possibility that it is some what possible to make a shot at 920 yards with open sites and kill an animal. I guess you could tell that guy you have probably seen hit an 18" plate on a Buffalo silhouette at 1450 yards with a 45-120 with open sites its impossible. You could also tell the guys that shoot 10" bullseyes with open sites in Palma matches that it isn't possible. I bet you could even insult the lowly snipers of WWI and WWII and Korea that they were unable to protect their fellow soldiers from advancing attack with an Springfield 1903, Jorgansen 30-40 Kraig, M1 Garand because that is all they had at the time picking off the leadership at 1000yrds. Jeesh I wonder how a Civil War sniper managed with only a rifled musket (if they used there own hunting rifle) and the ability to take a Colonel off his horse at an estimated 1000 yards with open sites. I guess it is impossible to be that open minded.

I guess it is impossible to understand that some individuals who have grown up on open sites because they could not afford a scope in their youth. They had to use what they had and learn to use it well. I guess you just might be a bit jealous that it is possible that there is someone out there that might just be a better shot than you two.

But here we are... being little boys doubting a mans ability because you have never tried nor have the ability to meet his ability. Once again the world revolves around two individuals and their innate ability to judge someone else's ability. I wish I could be like you guys... then again, I like the fact that I'm far less superior and have room to grow.
