What is the farthest you've ever shot and hit the intended target?

For me:
1,000 yards in June of 2005 for competition 171/200 2x (Savage 10FP)

100 yds at a piece of typewriter paper with my USP 45 just showing off to win a bet (free gatoraid tasted good)

75 yds deer slug 12ga mossberg 500

Festus if things hit the fan I'm heading your way! Don't worry i'll call first. lol.

For me about 250-300 yrds with my 16" AR15 carbine. No problems hitting a man size target. I'd like to try 1000 yrds some day once I get a scoped rifle.

Antelope @ approx. 600 yards. One shot, 6mm Weatherby, 8X scope and a few Milk jug size Targets with 1911 @ 100+ yards. These usually take more than one shot:pleasantry:

Caribou

Caribou rangefinder measured @ 389yds on the trot. Above the wulik river in AK. Rem 710, 30-06, 180gr silvertips, Burris 3x9x50 scope. Have never attempted anything longer. One shot with kentucky windage, clipped the heart.

I'd rather be lucky than good.

Furthest shot - a couple miles but that bullet got away from me :biggrin:

Intentional:
400m with an AR15 and 4 power scope
100m with various handguns at a 9" steel plate

I'm working on getting into Front Sight's precision rifle class, which goes out to about 1200m. Gotta get Distinguished Grad in the practical rifle class first. Missed it by 7 points last time.

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. :laugh:

Heck I've shot 2000 yards plus many time ... now HIT something, that's another story ... about 50 feet :pleasantry:
 
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.......

For those that don't know...

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.

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
