Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

"Deer at over 700 yards with a AR15 topped with IOR CQB M4 scope, That one was with a 55 grain Wolf hp, spine shot DRT."

you are right I am jealous that Im not shooting 700+ at deer with a round that insnt enough rifle(IMO) at 100 yards...one day maybe,just maybe with enough practice and a little luck Ill take my ar out and drop a bull elk at 1200 yards,if you can break a deers spine at 700 lung shooting an elk ought to be no prblem...I might have to use wolf solids though,we all know those 55 gr HPs are no good beyond 800 yards...And thank God you are here to defend this guy and all those unappreciated snipers from various wars throughout history that we were about to start doubting,what would they do without you?
If you are buying this I have some beach front property here in MT to sell you,I wont even charge extra for the oil and gold deposits...

SOLD!!! You can pick up my deposit at Fort Knox. Make sure you tell them a Spineless Unich sent you. Make sure you post pics of the Elk you knock down with your AR at 1200 also!!!

Respectfully,

Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

There are farmers in Namibia (Google it if you have never heard of it - probably the richest hunting grounds in the world) who shoot equally remarkable shots all the time with open sites on old 303 and 7 x 57 etc. Ignorance is a terrible thing - we must educate people to engage their brains before their mouths (pens, keyboards etc)

+1 Dave, going to google that and check out the shooting. Sounds interesting.

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.

Are they the best? No. but they do work. I am learning more every time I visit forum and plan to set up a 300wsm someday. Hopefully I can continue to post without getting to much flak from x3m and nonya.

Your welcome, all are welcome on this sight. Thanks for sharing your shooting abilities with us!

Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

There is a huge difference in shooting at a target made for open sights at 1000 yards, with a specialty gun for the purpose, and shooting an animal that far with open sights.
