Re: My friend is full of
Not sure about your friend, but just last week on an afternoon break from hunting deer and antelope in Wyoming, a few of us shot a few dozen PD's shot at that range and further. If it was really a 50 MPH I'd say it would be very tough, but even in a stiff wind it's not that hard to walk the bullet in with an AR and decent optics. Longest kill during our session with a 6.5x284 was 787 yards with a 7 MPH crosswind.
