Re: 223. remington as practice rifle for long range shooting???
I have shot my buddy's .223 at distances out to about 700yds. It is a great way to practice the fundamentals of shooting. In my opinion though, when the wind is 10mph or above, then it's just frustrating. A light weight .223 bullet will be all over the place with much wind at all. We don't even break it out if there's much wind.
