Re: Longest shot?

827 yards on a white tail ,He was a nice one (10 point) and I had plenty of time to plan the shot.
and the STW hit within 1 inch of the aim point (Just luck) but it was fun.

It is good to see that most of the members shoot the varmints at extreme distance and hold
the distance to under 1200 yrds for big game.

There are some on this site that can and do shoot beyond that distance, But I am not one of
them, unless a pig or some other pest steps out in front of me then there is no limit on the
distance I will try.

3 coyotes 300-319 yards.
Been practicing @ 600-840 and seeing deer in our long range shooting lane early in morning, me and buddy will be ready come deer season. We also just found a 900 yard lane. Looking forward to deer season.

Re: Longest shot?

For many years I have had a 500yd limit that I could never get beyond. I use 2 aim points on my Leupold scopes that cover everything up to that point very well, but beyond that they are safe. Been watching no.1 son with his target scope dialing in according to the ballistic program and doing very well with it. The weak link is the rangefinding capability in the field.
We take great pride in our longest shots, but don't ask about our closest misses

Re: Longest shot?

683 yards on a bull elk, 300WM driving 200ABs at 2945 fps. Tough critters, I put 4 into the vitals because he didn't even react until the 3rd one and stayed on his feet for a shot while even after the 4th.

I limit myself to about 800 yards as my rangefinder poops out around there typically, and also I do not get enough practice at distances longer than that.

I put a 338yd doe kill with a muzzleloader in the same class as the above shot, ballistic compensation was about the same and an Omega is not in the same league as a Sendero.
