Thread: What is the farthest you've ever shot?

    100+- yards. Piece of firewood floating in a private pond from the cabin porch. S&W .40 4" barrel first shot on a bet. Probably luck was with me but I quit while I was ahead and looked like a hero.
    You can run... but you'll just die tired. 3%

    How high did you have to aim?
    At a measly 100 yards, my pistols are still shooting pretty much to point of aim. I don't hold high at all.

    About 1220 with a M40A1.

    About 1850 with a M82A3.


    On the two way range:
    M40A1 - 700
    M82A3 - 450

    I figured you would have to pull out over 1200 with the M40A1. That is where things start getting interesting for bullet flight profiles.

    It was during a Mountainous Scout Sniper Course. Doing high angle shooting. It was one of those times where it wasn't how much you learned but realizing just how much you still need to learn. I had only graduated the Basic Scout Sniper Course about 2 months before and I was still in the "Damn I Am God Like!!" stage, and this brought be back down. Learned so much.......

    1200M with an M40A1 puts the bullet's time of flight at 2plus seconds with only Sir Issac Newton in the drivers seat, and if you follow the bell curve long enough you will se that it is dropping like a rock gravity wise and drag has slowed it to just above supersonic. At the point where the bullet's flight path and subsonic meet the shockwave will upset or flip the bullet butt first and destroy accuracy and what little energy it has left. Very few successful shots have been taken with a 7.62 NATO M118LR special ball round past 1200M.

    1000 yards during my much younger days. I can still do fairly well out to 200 yards and maybe a little further. These old eyes just ain't what they used to be.

  11. 880 yards on a running fox with my .220 swift on a '17 enfield action. My lucky day, dropped him on my 4th shot. Don't ask me to do it again. Dave
