Shucks, I've knocked squirrels out of trees at ranges longer than that with my .22! (in my dreams.) That .338 is one heck of a round, but I can't imagine hitting anything at that range. Good eyes for sure. I thought I was doing good on rockchucks at 400 yds with a .223.

according to some ballistic tables I saw, the bullet drop alone was a bit over 400 feet, and the flight time was 6 seconds or so.
That is incredible, I sure wish I could shoot like that. And of course I need the gun and optics capable of that shot as well.

Yeah the optics alone probably cost more than all my firearms combined, plus one of my cars.
Training and practice pays off!
