Default what's the longest shot you have taken?

I personal have only shot 200 yards. But I hopefully will get to shoot at a 1000 yards soon. When I get a new scope and base.

The longest shot I have taken, or the longest shot I actually hit what I was mostly aiming at?

HUGE DIFFERENCE.....

I shot at 775 yards through a rolling donut and neutered a groundhog, but that was because Linda didn't want them killed just managed birth control.

Lol! That's a crazy shot. In mid air. I'm sure my 1000yard shot will be a try And not a hit. We will see as long as I get the balistic info on my reloads right I think by the end of the day I will be able to hit he target.

OK truly

mine was in an Plum Orchard in Hamilton City CA it was a measures 398 yard on a ground squirrel with a RUGER M77VT Jewell trigger set to 6oz Weaver K12 and chambered in 220 Swift. Shot it off the hood of a White jeep Cherokee.

I got a few 250 to 350 yard shots on Ground hogs.

200 off hand, 300 sitting (w/sling) and 600 prone (w/sling). Standard NRA targets using IRON sights only. (Service rifle class.) 600 yds is the longest range in my area, but I've got a cousin in Ill-Annoy that shoots 1000 yd matches. Gonna have to hook up with him come spring time....
