This will take me some time to put together but I will get back with you on this. I spent four months testing an uncertainty method coached in the Montana Maximum Effective Range Shooting School (MMERSS). This method is a quick and easy approach with establishing a maximum effective range with close approximation to a combining root sum squared (RSS) uncertainty.

I always wondered what was behind your handle...

This means disciplined stalking & positioning, as well as a prepared shooting system.
Since we don't 'need' to hunt food anymore, our hunting challenge should mean something else(like shot/kill %).

The hogwash of walking shots into steel at a mile, should not be tolerated here, much less embraced.
Mike, you gotta start somewhere. I agree, you better have the ability and be confident of it when taking a long shot on game. But while you're learning and developing loads etc., you're going to miss a few. In the mean time, you're getting trigger time and gaining proficiency and the more you practice and learn the more able you are to make that first shot.

When I made that post I had my practice sessions agains viral rocks in mind.

Haven't missed a game animal in years.
