Where are you at with your skills and gear.

We haven't had a survey in a while so I thought I would throw this out for fun.

The scenario:
1. Your best most trustworthy gun.
2. Slight breeze coming from 6 o'clock steady.
3. Warm spring day.
4. Light clouds hazing the sun. No glare off shiny metal objects.
5. You choose altitude.
(2-5) Or whatever you consider perfect atmospheric conditions.
6. Marmot, groundhog, woodchuck, koala bear (Aus/NZ), HUGE stag (EU) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] sized live target.
7. NO BENCHES. Offhand to rested on a truck hood but no bench. Field rests only.
8. Your buddy ranges the shot. From that point you have 90 seconds for setup and shot.
9.<font color="red"> MUST BE A ONE SHOT KILL.</font> (This is a radioactive, rabid, suicide bomber varmint with cooties that will attack you if you miss.)

The question:
Out to which distance can you make the shot? Round answers like this: If you are good to 475 then round down to 400. If you KNOW you are good to 480 then answer 500 and so on.

No one will know who answers what except for my first answer so please no BSing (Alan). This is just for fun.

Metric using friends please do the conversion and answer in yards as well.

Wolverines and badgers give this guy the giggles. He is the feircest thing to come down the line since the rabit in Monty Pythons "Holy Grail".

Feirce I'm tellin' ya. That shot has to count or its "good night Irene".

Commie bastard. It's varmints like that, that make you understand why the Republicans hold the White House and both houses.

Re: Where are you at with your skills and gear.

We have our first 1k+ vote. Congradulations. Could I ask you to come out of annonimity and take a bow? Maybe tell us what gun, round, scope and rest you can do this with? I'm sure many of the new members would especially have an interest in this.

Or not, it's your choice. Thanks for responding in the poll.

4ked horn,

(No, I'm not the 1k bloke!)

Good idea for a poll. Hopefully lots more will chip in a vote. Thus far, the average result of 4-500yds has made me feel far less inadequate! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
