The first time I stood at the 1000 yard line and was shown the target, I was sure I was getting pranked.
M1 Garand, 7.62 McCoy conversion (Armory converted/owned), 1/2 minute NM peep sights (and a whole lot younger eyes then).

From the NRA High Power Regs

4.7 800, 900, and 1000 Yard Target (a) NRA No. LR
— Aiming Black (inches) Rings in White (inches)
X ring .................................10.00 7 ring ................................60.00
10 ring ................................20.00 6 area ....................72x72 square
9 ring ..................................30.00 8 ring ..................................44.00

(b) NRA No. LR Center—Paper size is approximately 45 x 45 inches. Same scoring ring dimension as NRA No. LR, through 8 ring (may have arcs of 7 rings on corners of the paper). For use with NRA No. LR; or may be used to provide the equivalent of No. LR by superimposing on the Military MR Target with MR 5 ring becoming the LR 7 ring; or on the Military B Target with B 3 ring becoming the LR 7 ring. In these uses, the area outside the 7 ring is the 6 area.

In the old days of the Varmint Hunters Assoc, we could join their "1,000 yd club" with a verified kill on a varmint at or past 1,000. I did two, a coyote (1 shot) and p-dog (2 barely missed 3rd center). Today, we practice on a 10" MOA gong @ 1,000 with a 5" painted center, a steel reactive large P-dog, marmot or other varmint gong, or sometimes, we have a wild hair day and shoot at orange clays.

20-24" gongs for 1 mile, but once used a 19x19"

Here you go, iron sight with a 14, 1000 yards, jacket and sling prone, single loading. Not my best score on that windy range. Shot a 197, could only claim 187, you can guess where the other 10 points, actually an X went.
