I am sorry but, unless you are Bob Munden or Jerry Miculek, I find that difficult (at best) to believe.

You are definitely mellowing, Cane! Thanks for the "Talk nice" reminder.

Sometimes people are just asking theoretical questions to find out the extremes. It sounds like he doesn't want to leave the comfort of his heated porch and the chicken coop is a couple of European football fields away.

Don't hit those chickens!

Here's my answer:

Handguns are not intended to be used at that range.

Default Imho...

We all know that the distance to use a revolver 357mag. barrel with a 6 "is 25-50m. IMHO, if I were to shoot from 200m ... I, I would not stay still and wait for the arrival of the bullet ... why run away before.

There's no telling how many times they shot that before they finally got a hit.

Plus, I personally get much out of putting my revolver on a rest (or any gun) except to sight it in. Where's the skill? Maybe off a sandbag or crate or something to simulate bracing yourself for a shot you might take in an actual "real world" setting, otherwise it's not really YOU doing the shooting.

For off handed (real) shooting revolvers can be very effective in the 50 yard (plus or minus 10 or so) MAX.

You can shoot it at a fox
You can shoot it at a box
You can shoot it at a ham
You can shoot it at a lamb
You can shoot it at a bus,
But you won't hit them, Aktarus.
