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.
Isn't this the guy who chastized GG for taking more than 1 shot? and you took 4? gotta go find the iggy button!

    I fired 4, through the chest, because he was still on his feet and I knew he was hit. GG is an idiot who shoots at animals way past his effective range, taking 6 shots just to hit the thing, then brags he is some sort of great shot. Treating elk like prairie dogs. If you think that is ethical hunting, you're as bad as he is.

    Consider it done. If you consider shooting an animal in the head when you were aiming at the chest something to brag about, or fire multiple times at an animal beyond the range you've tried before without hitting (much less making a vital shot) then go right ahead and try it again and claim so much talent at that range, I don't want to share camp with you. That's not what LRH is supposed to be about, and I can't defend it to those who look down on it (which I do quite often) when they can point to examples like this as being representative of our group. It makes us all look bad that you support it.

    Longest shot was 750 yards with 7mm 168vld on a forked mule buck. The vlds are impressive, just DRT.

    This is an old thread, but I'd figure I'd revive it. My longest 3 have been.

    Small Rockchuck-786- 2 shots
    Prairie Dog- 780- 10 shots
    Rockchuck- 630- First shot
