Celebrity....... Don't think so, just got lucky on that shot when shooting a good rifle with a good load.
I am not saying it was all luck but I will fully admit that to hit a target the size of the chuck that I hit, roughly 6" wide by 8" tall, even if you have a rifle that will hold 1/2 moa at that range, and assuming you can shoot the rifle well enough to get 1/2 moa groups at that range which is not really practical, you still have alot of air around the profile of the chuck that yoru more likely to put a bullet into then the chuck itself.
At that range, on that size of a target, even with the most advanced equipment that is extremely accurate which this rifle truely is, you still have to admit, there is a large degree of luck involved with this hit.
Do I think its repeatable, certainly is. Do I think a hit is possible at much longer ranges, of course, but anyone that says its their shooting and no luck involved at these ranges are simply inexperienced and uneducated about this sport at these ranges.
There are hundreds of guys on this board alone that could make that shot or do even better then I if they had the right equipment in the right situation like I did.
The way I see it, just another achievement for all of us in the LR shooting sport because we all help each other all the time.
Thanks for the kind words, I am sure there may be another APS rifle breaking this long shot of the year soon!!! Will it be mine???????? We will see. I guess the gauntlet has been laid down..........
