    That was before I figured out you could walk right up to the stupid things.

    Ring, I do believe I am going to have to map Kimbleton Ohio, and take a drive over that way at some point. I didn't know there were any ranges in Ohio that offered that kind of distance.

    Not counting MGs, I answered up to 600 Yards. This was on a KD (Known Distance) range with iron sights on an M4. With my personal weapons? 50 yds. I currently only own pistols and do not shoot any kind of competitions, so fun plinking with a Walther P22 at 50 yds is nice. When I do get a rifle I will want to keep up my accuracy out to 300 yds. Anything further is great, but I dont believe practical as a civilian.

    1,760 yards (one mile). Friend has a range built for shooting BPCR rifles at a measured one mile.

    This thread is amazing in that the longest distance option keeps hanging right in there with the most selected shorter distance options. Who would have thought so many are shooting so far?

    I just thought it would be something interesting to see, it seems like there are a fair number of long shooters on here. And a fair number seem to of gotten the experience through the military(like myself). There was a thread on here a while back that was a bragging thread about best shots, but this is slightly different.

    I need to get to a place to do mile shots, but then, I'd need a mile gun too.

    Shot 2000+ with an M2 backing up tankers. Sparks off the targets told us we were hitting but the 120mms were the main show.

    Longest shot without a mounted weapon would be 650 yrds with M16A2 and iron sights. Hit 6/10 on a B-mod target.

    With a pistol shot to 75 yrds and hit... sometimes.

    250 yds. w/ the M-16 rifle (standing/kneeling/sitting/prone positions) during the Navy rifle qualification course at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown while part of the Naval Security Force back in 2000. My grade skill was an Expert. And that was my first M-16 shoot too in my entire Navy career.

    Actual aimed fire and rounds on target with pistol one hundred yards off a rest. With rifle (known distance) 600 yards. A few estimated at longer range but not measured for distance or anything resembling a group size.

    Here's some West Texas and southwest Texas country.

    It occurred to me that I have a photograph of the exact place were I made the longest deer shot of my hunting career using a 7X75. This photo was taken about 8 years later though. The buck was standing in the flat to the right of the two oil tanks and very near the right edge of the photo. The photo flattens the terrain and what is not perceived by looking at it is the shear drop just in front of the prickly pearl.



    I'm only being silly here shooting at our target rock, Achmet at 330 yards according to my brother-in-law's rangefinder. A Smith & Wesson Model 10 .38 Special feels pretty weenie in this "No Place For Old Men" country south of Sanderson, Texas. There are two rocks on top of a rock face with a large splash of chalk white on it from bullet impacts. I'm attempting to hit the one on the right. The rock is 5 feet high and about 2 feet wide. Don't remember ever hitting it with this particular cylinder-full.

    Standard XTC Service Rifle competition is 200, 300 and 600 yards and the national champions (Military or civilian) all use the M-16/AR-15 and have for years. There is also XTC to 1,000 yards, again in Service RIFLE CLASS the M-16/AR-15 has won the title many times.

    I've got to check that place out! Didn't know there were any ranges in Ohio of that distance. Looks pretty cool! The longest shots I have made with a rifle were in the Army--500 yards with an M1 and with an M14. Back in the early 60s. Longest shots with a pistol were at IHMSA matches, 200 meters IHMSA rams and also smaller "shoot off" targets of chickens, pigs and turkeys, to break ties. Those were with a Remington XP in 7BR, a TC Contender in 7TCU, and a S&W Model 29 .44 mag with an 8 3/8" barrel. All those were handloads. All were with iron sights. That was back in the late mid and late 80s, early 90s when the eyes were much younger.
