1080 Yards


Recommended Posts

Not bad at all for a round having  trajectory like a rainbow, a fairly short barrel, iron sights, and shooting offhand....with a wind blowing.  And not a single obvious feature that I don't have on my 1886 Browning....'cept a pistol grip....maybe.  Wasn't even using a sling.

 

Not a man to be messed with.

I wish I had his eyesight.  I'm not sure I could see a 24 x 24 white square at 1080 yards with my eyesight.

Swedish Mauser at 2500 yards with 20-25 mph winds.  Note to self, never, ever piss that man off!

Military sights with the rear a notch about an eighth of an inch wide and a sixteenth of an inch deep and a front blade that is about a sixty fourth of an inch wide at the top.

Nice shooting. If that was a man standing up there he’d be a hurting’ puppy. 
I truly doubt I could see that target. 24”x24” Target at 1080 yards would be hard for me, I’m sure.

It is possible that a little bit of luck was thrown in with a bucketful of skill.

 

Luck is when training and experience meet opportunity.

I guess that is one reason 45-70 cartridges are so expensive, right now. 

They are more popular than they have ever been, and rightfully so. 

I have two rifles that shoot the 45-70. I need more. :D

You need to come up to the Quigley match up here. Targets from 350 to 805 yds.

Let alone aim at it. The front sight would probably cover a pickup with a camper shell at that range.
