Tennessee Long Range Hunting

We don't have too many places here in Tennessee that we can get a 1000 yard shot so we have to improvise. Sometimes you can find a big hollow or maybe a river bottom farm. If all else fails you can find a long open path through some prime deer hunting woods. In Texas they call these senderos. Here in Tennessee we call them railroad tracks.

    Wonder how many times you could ricochet a bullet between the rails?

    The tracks have been decomissioned so the trains aren't a problem. As for the ricochets, I don't know. I haven't shot at the rails, only deer. I can tell you that a Swift 150 gr. Scirocco going 3325 FPS doesn't ricochet off a deer.

    Oh, and in case any of you are wondering what that good looking rest is I'm using, it's my deer cart flipped upside down and propped up as high as it will go. I'm sitting in a director's chair. You have to be comfortable to sit there all day long.
