My best “shot” ever was in a barn after dark while a buddy was shining a flashlight on birds flying around I threw a Chinese throwing star and took it out in mid flight. I had only one throwing start. 1 throw, 1 bird, all luck!

Oh
I read on another forum that a long time user and shooter claims he is making consistent shots on prairie dogs at 850 yards with his AR 223 shooting 40 and 50 grain bullets ! He then said he is making these shots in 30 mph crosswinds !! I find this impossible to believe but I wanted to ask all of you if you have ever seen anyone perform this feat ? I did not call him out because I did not want to embarrass him for his canard , especially if it’s not personal. My only thought was magic bullets !
Hey! Pmacc60: I know that guy ,I think his name is Rambo!😊

If there are enough prairie dogs maybe he could kill 2or 3 at 850 with an AR style shotgun with 00buck

Anything is possible, not everything is able to be done. the best twist for a 50 - 55 grain to shoot 1,000 yards is a 1:7" twist. if the shot is possible it would be with a 1:7" twist to keep stabilization at extended yardage. next the drop is mostly out of the scope at that yardage so he could be shooting without the prairie dog in his scope and it's all memory and the prarie dog is not moving. then the wind.. as a 1K yard competitor.. wind is your worst enemy and it is very unpredictable from the muzzle to the target unless you have flags/wind indicators every 50 to 100 yards. this shot this guy is claiming is not easy and should be a true accomplishment once or twice a day.. anything more is amazing.

Maybe this has been mentioned. First, it is always good to see things. If he hits one in a shot or 2, I would suggest he go win/bet some money.

Second, I would figure out the drop fairly exactly. Then look at his optics. I would bet he doesn’t have the tools to dial/hold 850...

I think my 77 yard shot on a ground squirrel with .177 Beman air rifle 5-20X Tasco scope 😂 is in same class! I actually picked off 3 from 52-77 yards that morning. My wife just shakes her head watching me with cross sticks, range finder, puff wind indicator crawling across yard to get closer. They tear the place up digging up bulbs, holes everywhere. I feel like Caddyshack when I put a smoke bomb down a hole, seal it and come back later to find the hole opened up with burnt out carcass of the bomb on ground next to entrance😂.

Well all I can say is that maybe he wasn't lying. He didn't give a percentage and only said consistently. Consistently is relative. Maybe he hits in every 50 shots on average. To him that's consistency!!!

I had to find this. He did say that it took an average of 3 shots to walk it in and the dogs didn't know they were getting shot at. Also a lot of reticle adjustment needed. So OK, I can go along with that. I remember as a kid shooting soda cans at about 400 yards with my scoped 22LR in a strip mine that locals used as a garbage pit. Once i had the holdover it was pretty easy.
