I smoked a coyote at 625 with my 257 wby, deer at 425 with it also. I shot a deer at 62 with my compound bow and another at 40 with my longbow!
Mule deer at 387 7mm rem mag.
Prairie Dog at +-876 yards with 7mm Rem Mag, 175gr Abbubond LR, at 2,815FPS.
I like to omit the part where it took me 14 rounds with a spotter to hit it
I didn't take the shot, my coach did while I did the DOPE figuring and watched. We were shooting diagonal across a square mile field with a .22-250 and he takes a standing shot on a crow after we napkin math'd the firing solution. We were about 150 yards from the corner on our side. It was about 100 yards from the corner on its side. The bullet hit with just a little more energy than a pellet gun but did in fact anchor that crow to the ground. It never flew again. It did hop around a bit like it'd just closed its finger in a car door for a while but it didn't fly ever again. The irritating thing is, it was a cold bore shot.
Otherwise, I don't tend to shoot at things that are all that far away. I'm too lazy for that kind of shizzle.
487 yards (per GPS and Google Earth), Elk, .338WM/225gAB
734 yd whitetail. 300 RUM and 215 Berger. DRT never even twitched.

Alberta, Canada - Whitetail deer lazered at 390 yards w/ a .257 Weatherby Mag.
Alaska - Sitka Blacktail deer lazered at 310 yards w/ a .375 Ruger Magnum.
Colorado - Elk ~600 yards w/ a 30-06. I was young and didn't exhibit the best hunting decisions. I could see the shots hitting at his feet, and then I basically walked the shots up to him and he dropped. I would never do it again.
