    So far for me 300 yards with a Remington Model 7 .243 with no problem and had an awesome time. And having steel plates makes it 10 times better! Soon i will be at 500 and then someday 1,000! My range has a 500 yarder so i will going and doing that. So whats the longest you shot at the range or hunting.

    Farthest I've shot is 750 yds., I now have a place to shoot 1018 tho :D. Groups @ 750 yds. were under 3" for my .308 win, and under 2.5" for my 22-250 rem. THERE WAS NO WIND!!!:D lol. That's not gonna happen again.

    our local range only goes to 300. i think i have found another private ranke that goes out to 1500 though. I cant wait till i can go out there and try something longer than 300

    My local range holds several 1,000 yard matches annually. I run teh 600 yard F-Class match. The near by desert is good to go for well beyond the 1,800+ yards that I use it for lately.

    In South Dakota we have confirmed kills at 1760 and 2218 and have pounded the hell out of the mounds at 3200-3500 just have never killed anything. It's hard to hit a pd at that distance when it takes 9 sec. for the bullet to get there, you have to shoot where you think they will be. Around home here in Pa we have a couple of 1k ranges close and we shoot alot of groundhog matches out to 500.

    How do you spot your bullet impacts at this distance?

    The longest competition shots for me is a 1500yd F Class match.
