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.

Re: What do you consider "long range"?

In this discussion (if you consider over looking the, " My throwing knife doesn''t have the same range as my WWII field piece" type answers,) what do you consider short range, and medium range, I assume short range would be from near zero to what ever, medium would be from what ever to long range.

Short range = 0 to 300
Medium = 301 to 500

For a 308 at 2600fps, 300 yards is about .5 seconds flight time and at 525 is about .75 seconds flight time.
