sorry John Deere, but you are approaching unethical hunting practices. what is the furthest you have ever shot at accurately? do you fully realize how far 800 yrds is? it's pretty dang far!
remember that in hunting you need to be able to hit a target of about 4-5 inches in diameter, consistently, each and every time you pull the trigger. realisticly can you really shoot that accurately?
the furthest distance i advocate anyone shooting at is the distance they can hit each and every time a person pulls the trigger. this distance will vary by caliber and the person doing the shooting. practice and more practice is the key factor in shooting accurately.
