Re: 3600 rifle shot

I really enjoy long range shooting, doesn't matter to me if it's hunting or competition. I do as much as I can to promote it, whether it's lending equipment, letting people shoot my guns or having someone over to teach good loading practices. But I have to say a 3600 yard shot is a bit of stretch from a rifle. I have my doubt's anyone can shoot at that distance with any type of consistency. I'm not saying it is an impossible shot I just don't think it can be done with regularity. Notice its a 1 shot group, they might luck into getting 2 on a 36" target but never 3, and I'll betcha 2 would be real difficult.

Long range shooting is a lot of fun, but I think there needs to be realistic goals and expectations. I'd like to make a 2+ mile shot but certainly wouldn't say I did it by skill, it would have to be considered 99% luck

Ha, in PA that buck would be gone in 300 yards.
Knew a fella who shot a deer that ran over the next hill. By the time he got to it, another hunter downed it with a 30-30 shot.
