    ya can't bull**** a bull****ER...

    700 yards???? That's approximately a half mile!!! Snipers??? Rifle bolted down and anchored in conrete??? Dead calm day when even a feather falls straight down??? Rangefinder off a LITTLE??? I haven't seen the vid, but you can bet I am going to get my hands on it soon. Hats off to fellas making "confident" shots at that range! I couldn't pull the trigger feeling "good" about my placement. I am not questioning the video, I'm just saying...700 yards???

    Another great topic to write a book about...I think I will try to market it in the "personal fitness and health" section. Write about the exercise you'd get at the range. Just think...every 3 shots, you walk a half mile just to change your target!!! Then you walk another half mile just to take another 3 shots!!! Now let's do it all over again!! Come to think of it...this could also be found in the "personal finance" section too. I'd be willing to bet that after not too many of those mile long trips, you'd be saving on shells!!!!!

      I can hook you up with a couple of specialty pistol forums where guys are making the same type & distance shots with single shot handguns. Under 3" groups on target at that range. Amazing. BUT, they are using bipods, handheld weather stations, rangefinders, & small handheld computers that figure the wind drift & drop so they can dial the correct # of clicks into the scope or using graduated reticles rather than doing "Kentucky windage".
      Pretty amazing.

            Caliber

            If you look at the catriges on the stock of the rifle when they are at the range it looks to me like it is the 30-378 Weatherby.

              Too far for me

              There is a 1000 yd public shooting range where I am from in Missoula MT. I read an online article a while back about shooting/testing the 325wsm at 700yds with good results. It turns out they were at that range. Not for me, that's too far. Intersting though that guys can make those long shots with any gun or caliber.

                hey Snyd, how long have you been up here?
                We left Kenai & movet to Hamilton MT. for 5 yrs but came back here 4 yrs ago. I do miss the elk hunting down there!

                    The 7mm/404 would be similar to the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum.

                      Hey Vance,
                      I moved to Fairbanks from Missoula in 1992. I actually was living in Lolo when I moved up here. My folks still live in Missoula. Worked at Bitterroot Motors for 8 or 9 years. Boy, that Bitterrrot Valley is really grown now. I miss the elk and whitetail hunting but love hunting in Alaska.

                        Dan Lilja from Lilja Barrels used to hunt Elk at Long Range. No shots were taken under 800 yards. It's all in the equipment and the amount of practice one does. Dan used the 338'378 WBY for his shooting. WWII range finders, shooting bench were all taken out in the field for this shooting. Boyd Heaton from PA. does a lot of long range shooting for whitetails in PA. I have a friend in VA that is a long range varmint shooter. Practice and equipment make it all possible.


                        Of course somebody here accused me of being unethical for shooting Caribou at a measley 467 yards. But I have the equipment and do the practice needed for those shots.

                          I saw a ram get killed at well over 700 yards and 45 degrees uphill, this past year. Talk about a miracle.
                          300 SAUM was the caliber.

                            Hmmm. If it was ranged at 700 yds actual distance and the shot was uphill at 45 degrees the bullet trajectory would have "thought" the yardage was less. If you were able to take the shooter and the ram and stick them in thier postions and flatten the terrain between them, the yardage would be less than 700 yds. Either way though, sounds like it was a miracle shot.

                              The guy in this post is Kirby Allen one of the best long range shoots and gunsmiths in North America. Check out his rifle Black Sunshine.
