Default longest shot with 5.56 AR carbine?

So what is the longest shot where u connected with your target with a carbine length AR chambered in 5.56? I know there are many AR-10 platforms out there that are long range shooters, but I am wondering with 5.56...I would also like to know barrel length, make and model of AR and type of ammo.

Just wondering, thats all

not a carbine m4 fan.

but my longest shot with a 5.56 was 1000 yards on a M60 machine gun range on man sized popups. 10 to get the bullet drop right since the sights only elevate to 800m. then i started hitting the pop ups. using my issue M16A2

Military issue M16, (Colt) prone, bipod, 750 meters. Target skylighted, no wind, iron sights- surprised the daylights out of me.

Steel at 300, open sights, 77gr smk, prone on wood bench. While at 3 gun a few weeks ago.

Before that, I'd only done 100-200 benching it.
Shooter ready....

Rested position with iron sights, 500 meters.

My wife was a Marine and they qualify at 500, so I had to make sure I could shoot as good as she could
