1 shot off hand w/ BOB at 100 yards, not sure how far from a rest, never really tried to sort that out.

The "likly hood" of me hiting a 3" target is up to 400 yards. I will guarantee it to 300.

I shoot 1 MOA targets for my "first round" practice. I can make first round hits on a 1 MOA target out to 800 yards. Provided the wind is not fierce. 1k I can usually get withing a few inches of a 10" target.

Thats just what I can do.

I guess I should really re-think my answer as... I was assumeing it was from a bench.. but then I should have realized the person who asked the question... So now I am thinking bi-pod... I'm gonna say 300 yards from a bi-pod but I am not real sure it couldn't be a bit further... I also using my 308, and also thinking the 300WSM can do the same...

500 here as well. Of course that is bench mounted, right?

Nope. The idea is that you are hunting seal. To prevent the animal from jumping in to sea and vanish you need an instant fatal hit. Headshot is the only option. You can not bring with you an entire bench on the boat and rig it up on a nearby isle. So bipod is what you have to work with.

Keep in mind that it is often windy out there too...

A lot depends on the rifle and wind in low or no wind with my heavy barreled 06 or 243 500 yards. I have made lots of first round hits on pop cans out that far. Thats off a bi-pod.
