nice rig and great set up. i shoot a barett 50 at 1k with lepold glass and bors system. i can currently hit the target at that range but i have a long way to go. have a fn scar in 308 that works great out to 600-700 yards.
if you really want to learn long range shooting find yourself a good coach and practice a lot. i have a coach who is a marine sniper and he has helped all of my shooting greatly.

Not to mention my movement made me time a shot for that natural pause. A 1000 yard target would just disappear in all but, what, 50x scopes?

Only 13 months old? Not quite a record, but it's in the top 25.

I shoot local f-class matches in my area. I hang out with a few guys that just made the US National F-Class Team. Sure you can see targets at 1k. We even hit them from time to time. As for subsonic at 800 That's odd, when I work the pits there are plenty of sonic cracks as the bullets go over head. If you load the right bullet with the right powder you can keep a 308 super sonic to 1k.
