    Long range for me is 350-1000 yards, extreme long range is 1000+ yards.

    I think long range starts at 400 that means when I look at my target no matter what it is target or game I consider it to be long range I can remember when people thought 250 was a long poke I'm just wondering what the general consensus thinks is long range I would bet you are at that consensus thanks for replying

    In my mind, long range is a somewhat subjective personal value. My own assessment is any range where I have a clear, still target in the open and have to stop and evaluate my ability to make a clean quick kill under the prevailing circumstances. On a still day with a target as described I'd consider anything over 500 yards as long range. When the wind is stiff and difficult to judge, that distance would come down to perhaps 300 yards.

    I consider long range as three quarters of a second of flight time. A lot of things can happen in one second. I agree with FearNoWind on situations.
