If it's a 100, 200, 300, 600, or 1000 yard record, you must follow Willey's post. And after it gets submitted, three guys from the appropriate club's board must measure it and an average is taken and then a verdict is released.
There have been a handful of so called "world records" fired by military, proprietors (lost river ballistics comes to mind) and others at distances in excess of 1000 yards but none really can be substantiated with any degree of reliability. So and so's word doesn't cut it. I think it needs to be done in a match or done on demand with authorities in witness to really be concrete.
