    Probably. Heck, the .22lr will make it 1000 yards and so will many calibers. I imagine in the right wind, elevation and direction, almost anything will make it 1000 yards.

    Can you be more specific? 1000 yards for what exactly? Bench shooting? Zombie defense? Big game hunting in a state other than Ohio?

    Btw, I must have missed your introduction. I am just down 77 a bit at exit 1. Welcome.

    If you are really looking for a 1000 yard rifle, get an
    AR10 in 6.5 Creedmore. I have heard they are still
    supersonic at 1200 yards.

    The 6.5 Grendel is definitely a 100o yard round. The 123gr. Scenar that you brought up will have more velocity than any .308 round I could find at 500 yards. It seems to retain it's energy better than the .308 as well. There are better rounds out there for 1000 yards though.

    Vida Guerra . She became "famous" around 03. Well I think it was 03. I was deployed so it could have been earlier. Basically for her "rear-end." She did some photo shoots for mags such as Maxim. She also did a few shows here and there. The one I remember most was a show on Telemundo where she was in a bubble filled jacuzzi w/ the host. Then last year she hosted a show called Living the Low Life. It was a show that followed the low rider scene.
