Doesn't compete with you guys, but 244 yards on a small white tail doe with an Encore in .416 - 06 JDJ with a 400 grain Hawk RT at 2000 fps. I have the 3x - 12x Burris with ballistic plex. My shot was lying on my back with the scope on 3x and the gun resting on the outside of my right calf. I plan to stretch it out when the opportunity arises. It will shoot a little under 4" at 400 yards with the best loads I've come up with.

Nice shooting. Isn't a 400 grain bullet at 2,000 fps in a handgun pretty serious recoil?

I do not consider myself a long range hunter, but enjoy this forum. My longest handgun kill is 410yds on a coyote with my 243 H-S Varmint pistol . I was calling over a small frozen lake when a coyote came out on the opposite side about 500yds across and started to come along the edge towards me. I was watching the coyote thru my scope then for some reason it decided to turn back but stopped by an old beaver hut that I knew was 400yds away. I didnít plan on shooting but the pistol was steady on the bipod and the scope was on 12x. So I made use of the B-Plex and took the shot. I donít have a picture of that coyote but last winter I got a double by that same old beaver hut .This time I was sitting only 150yds away.http://

JLK,
When it comes to LR with SP's I would say that it begins somewhere between 300-350 yards. Not only is it more difficult to shoot SP's typically but you are also handicapped in terms of lower velocity with the shorter barrels.

P-Dog with the 17 AH

Sorry, but no pics of the dead P-Dog. The shot was 289 yds lasered with the Leica 1200. The barrel was a 12" Bullberry, topped with a Burris 3-12. The load was 9.4 gr of Lil Gun and a 20 gr VMax. Velocity with that load is 3200 fps. Here's a pic of the pistola. It has been in action with that barrel since late '91.



The location was eastern WY, about 15 miles from the SD border.

So Tom, how far is your longest one?
