do you have a 1000 yard range??
did you know shooting a 6 inch target at 1000 yards is about the same as consistantly hitting a .6 inch target at 100 yards or a 1.8 inch at 300. And that is totally not counting for mirage or wind.
Did you know that mirage when looking through a magnified optic at an object 1000 yards away can at times completely obscure a man sized object.
The higher the magnification the worse the mirage effect can get.
1000 yard shooting is more of an art than a science. Being able to hit a ten inch circle consistantly at 1000 yards is considered the gold standard goal for shooters who engage in such things. For that, people practice for years honing their skills at judging wind and mirage and trigger control.
