Bit late posting this one and I don't figure it quite counts as long range, but my boy got his first deer on his 6th birthday this year. The boy's pretty tough with his cut down howa in 223 and I let his papaw talk me into letting him have a go at it. 5x8 tower stand was barely big enough for him to shoot from his bog death grip with my dad on the binos and myself on the back up gun. No follow up necessary because he drilled him at 140 yds. Pretty sure we got a lot more excited than he did! Nov 26th was a good day fellows.
Thata boy

Agreed! My 7 yr old niece is honing her skills with a 300blk for next year. She is good to 75-80 yds then things get sketchy. 140 yds is quite a poke for his age. Congrats to a great young hunter/shooter!

Congrats to your son on his first deer. That is a memory that will last a lifetime. I wish him many more to come.

That's what hunting is all about time with family and friends making memories.In this case a memory that will last for 3 lifetimes.Congratulations.
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1


Culture Of Excellence At Nightforce Optics
By Len Backus

A high level of quality both in production and in service. Read More


Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
