This is a pic of Steve using my 7mm Dakota XP on a very small mulie @ 597 yards. Scope is a Mark 4 with the "ART" reticle.
Using the ART reticle Steve nailed it, shooting prone w/Harris BR bi-pod (notched legs w/pod-lok).

I got an antelope last year at 495 yards with my father watching(MOA 6.5x284). Didn't think I'd ever top that,
that was until this year when I took the head off a PD at right around 550 yards(contender 22-204).
I figure I'll try to add a few yards every year. I think I'm pretty well hooked!

Lets see with a S&W 44 mag I got a WI doe at 80 yds which started my handgun hunting fever. The next year it was another WI doe at 207 yds with an Encore in 7-08, with a Bullberry barrel.
Then last year I got beat by my son getting a antelope at 438 yds to his 495 yds. with my (now my son's) MOA, in 6.5x284 and with Rays 22-204 Contender I got a pd at 611 yds.
This year while hunting with Ernie and Steve I got an antelope at 740 yds and a rockalope at 770 yds, very hard to eat though. That was with my new MOA in 7 Sundance, 376 Styer case.
This year was my first to just use rifle scopes on my guns. Used Exbal and used the target turrets on my 6.5x20x50 long range Lupy, which I got off this list. ;-)
The longest shot on a coyote was taken with my Striker in 22-250 which was at 248 yds.
Heres the first antelope

Heres this years

Heres the pd

and my coyote and Striker

let's see, longest animal taken, have to say from this spot at our farm in KY I have taken several does and bucks. the tree line to front and to the left is 490+ yds, straight out is 385 yds and to the right is in the 420-460 yd range. nice to sit and have your evening coffee and wait for the "big one "to walk out. when it rains it all fits into a camo blind. so far from this spot only mid sized bucks and large does. 300 WSM is in the picture

Open sighted- whitetail doe GP-100 146gr Speer earholed at 78 steps.

Scoped- whitetail doe using my Contender in 7x30 Waters, 140gr BT- 283 yd

Nothing in range compared to some of yours, but both were great spot and stalks, and very memorable hunts.

For both of the handguns used, those are good shots.
