Re: Longest shot?
The longest one I can remember at the moment was a mule deer near Alder Montana at 1300 yards. I am not a super long range hunter, however I shoot long targets frequently, so this was not ordinary for me. The deer jumped straight up on the first shot and did a couple of hops. He stood there a few seconds then fell over. He was double lunged. He was a good one. Most of my shots on game are in the 400-800 yard range and I don't call that serious long range hunting. Anyone who does a lot of long range shooting knows the difference is daylight and dark between say 750 yards and 1000-1300 yards. The load on that shot was 84 grains H4831, 168 grain match bullet from a 300 wby mag. It happenned over 25 years ago but I remember the load well because I still use it sometimes. It always seemed to be accurate.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
