Long range is any distance that I can't hit what I'm shooting at!!

Long range to me is when you can no longer just guess the range and use Kentucky Windage to hit.

I think anything past 500 yards is when factors come into play.

Most loads I shoot will have a max point blank (no hold over required) approaching or exceeding 400 yards so for me "long range" has to be something more than that.

On deer and larger game 600.

Priarie dogs are a real challenge at 400, so are rabbits.

The challenge grows exponentially with the range from beyond those ranges if there is any wind at all.

It also depends a great deal on what you are shooting firearms and caliber wise.

200yds is a hell of a poke with an open sight pistol for example.

so

440 yards is 1/4 mile. That's not THAT far.

880 yards makes the half mile mark. That's far.

I rounded up from the choices and said 1,000 yards is long distance.

I bet many of us on here have shot over a quarter mile distances. Some maybe didn't even realize it.
This is the LRH forum. For the most part 400yds doesn't approach LR for most of what we are shooting and I think, no, I'm pretty sure most of us know that.
