Re: what do you consider long range ?
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.
