Re: Long range rifle shooting
Long range can mean different things to different people. I have shot 1 mile that is the farthest I have even tried. I watched Tubbs one mile shot and figured hey HE has a 6mm I got a 50 I can do that. We where shooting at a full size van ( junker ) one mile down a road on blueberry barons ( a friends private property ) Even with my big spotting scope I could not see holes or the van clearly. I fired 10 rounds and when we got tot the van it had ONE hit. I did it not sure what shot made the hit don't really care I did it.
Now I have been shooting out to 100 yards for quite a while with .308 6.5 and several other calibers. At 300 yards I can cloverleaf with these rifles but out at 1000 your groups grow big time. 1000 yard targets are 6 foot and off the bench many new shooters can get all shots on paper though not always in the black.
