All that shows me is lack of respect for the game.
They use does and cow elk as "practice". Thats a total lack of respect for wildlife.
There is no reason to shoot does and cows at extreme range. I think they could use a little practice all right...how about practicing some stalking skills and shooting antlerless game at reasonable ranges?
Their equipment and dedication to shooting is unquestionable...their lack of regard for wildlife is also unquestionable.
There is no question they wound a lot of game. Too many variables when you shoot long range...I dont care how much you practice or how careful you are.
Its also fair to note on their video, a bunch of the people who shoot stuff at those extreme ranges have spent very little time behind the rifle they're shooting. In at least 2-3 cases, they brag about how they'd just shot the rifle for the first time the day before.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
