Just thought this would make some fun conversation. Do you judge long range by yardage, the cartridge you are using at the time, the terrain your hunting in, or a combination of all. Lets have a fun clean conversation and share our views.
Yes it is more to hunting, but target is ok too. Specifying as you did is very good. I agree with you, the game animals deserve enough respect that we take only shoots we can make clean fast kills with.I took this as a hunting question. I voted 500 as 600 wasn’t an option. Assuming good atmospheric conditions, from field positions, known range, and time to prepare for the shot....I feel pretty good to 600, on a big game animal. Beyond that, with my abilities, I feel it unjust to attempt a shot on a big game animal! Our game animals deserve more respect!
For an inanimate object....1000 yards! memtb
Very trueI think anything past 300 yards can be considered long range. This is where wind, drop, shot angle, bullet flight time, and shooter ability become factors.
Where the shooters abilities start to be a limiting factor is another consideration; that may be well beyond 300 yards.
