D. I shot a doe at a little over 400 yds this year. I was comfortable doing it so i think i could shoot farther, probally like 600 or so, I think that is about as far as I'll be able to shoot where i hunt.
Oh yeah, the deer i shot this year was with my dads rifle, its a model 70 .300 weatherby(its not a long range gun) Its zeroed at 300 yds, with a 200 grain partition. I shot the deer at 400 yard with a 180 grain ballistic tip, I was laying down on a flat rock and i just held right on and shot
