What do you consider "long range"?

What distance would you consider long range?

I know long range for a .22 is going to be different than a 338, but on average say a .308, what would be long range?

    600 yards for paper and 400 yards for game. But that's just me. We've got quite a few ultra-longrangers on this site so you should get a few different opinions.

    Now if you're talking 300 RUM than the numbers all change.

    300 yards for 22lr....what does that equate to in 223 or 308?

    I have clients that 200 yards is long range for, I also have clients that 75 yards is a long shot for, I also have clients that don't think it's sporting to shoot under 500 yards. I'm with the 500 plus guys. let it be what it is, everyone gets to shoot and have a good time. As long as we all know our personal limitations.

    A 308 is very capable to 1000yards on paper but I would cut the distance in half for deer size
    game and half again for Elk.

    1000 paper , 500 deer and 250 for elk.

    Just my opinion

    I think the 1 second rule holds true for the most part. Any projectile that takes over 1 second to arrive at the target I would consider long range. It roughly gives about the same amount of time for something to go wrong.
