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

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.

Re: what do you consider long range ?

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.
