Re: How Long is "LongRange"?
I've come to believe that I personally don't have a fixed number for long range determination. It really doesn't matter to me as long as I know my limit on distance. The "Long Range" value(s) is/are inflicted upon me/us by the folks I/we meet, talk to and hunt alongside.
When you mention to someone the distance(s) you shoot/will shoot and have shot critters and they go into the "BS", "Oh my god", "whatever", "you're an idiot and here's why....." tirade, you're on your way to learning just how far THAT OTHER persons long range value is... I believe we should, at that point, tattoo it onto their forehead as a warning to others "This man's long range limit is: nn/nnn yards, proceed with caution".
