416 Barrett with a 422 grain bullet.The link only gives me a blank page. But it’s MSN, so they probably took the article down because its not PC.
Mighty impressive rifle. I’m guessing it’s shooting a heavy VLD type bullet. Ronny Barrett must be happy they used a Barrett developed cartridge. Calculating the wind switch, the coriolis affect of the Earths rotation aside from bullet drop must had been been a head scratcher.
There is a Youtube channel MarkandSam AfterWork, (word spacing correct) a Australian couple where Mark is shooting different rifles at 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 plus yards. Sam is spotting to call hits or misses.
My Sierra manual only goes out 1,000 yards. It would be guessing for further shots. But there are ballistic apps for cellphones and computers. You really need a chronograph to clock the load to fully use the apps though.See, this is what happens when you sit in the bathroom too long with your reloading manuals, staring at trajectory charts
Just because it hasn’t been done before. It’s a lot safer and more fun than trying to set a new record scaling a mountain or setting a land speed record.I didn't read the article but the only question that came to my mind is - WHY?
