Ok????? I am going to join in on the fun here and see what happens.
I have not claimed to be a guru on long range shooting...hell, I shot some 6 inch balloons the other day at 300 yards with an AR and was happier than a hog in slop! But if I remember correctly, just something I read mind you, as a bullet is on its path to the target, the farther it goes the more velocity it loses. Now simple physics tells me that if something is losing velocity, it too will lose altitude, so your theory of "roughly double that for a thousand yards" just got shot down like the gnat you hit at 3000 yards with a .22 LR.
And I was in the military and I have friends that are/were in spec ops, one was a SEAL...I know none of them that have been trained to shoot 2000 yards. That is a long ass way dude. Maybe you should get off your daddys computer and read a few books and get back to us when the lies are a bit more believable... Jus sayin....dont get mad and shoot me from 2 miles away
