My longest handgun kill is 1,037 yards on a buck antelope with a center-grip Rem XP-100 chambered in 7WSM. Bullet is the 162 grain A-Max.

Re: Longest Handgun Kill

I know its nothin to bragg about, but my longest kill with a handgun was a 30-35yd shot on a small bear with a Ruger Blackhawk .44mag. I was excited as Ill get out about it tho. It was a nice colored bear. ...........ok ill go back to the rifle forums now. I only have cowboy guns and an XD, so you guys blow my mind with what can be done with a handgun. Im impressed. That takes skill!

"Real hand guns" ????? According to ATF mine are REAL handguns.......

Congrats on a great shot. What kind of penetration did you get at that distance?? What was your bullet weight? Did you hit any bone going in?? How many shots till you hit it??

I know the feeling, I've pulled off some lucky shots over the years myself. They make for great stories.
