I been reading all types of stuff about the "1 mile" shot. I guess there are some out there who have the battery and range to do this. Most of what I read on this forum, like Darrel's 338/416 monster are WAY out of my leage. If I shot a beast like that I think I would be so happy I would want to just be alone for awhile. But for some people they are drawn to that. I would drive hours and pay just to shot at a 5gal bucket full of water at 1mile. Ofcourse I would need coaching and a spotter! Sounds better than any ride at Hershey park ride I ever took!
