    I shot a coyote with my 240 Weatherby at...I can't remember the distance because it gets longer every time I tell the story:-D). Actually it was between 350 and 400 yards. I have puched paper at 1,000 yards with a .308 Win.

    I once hit a spike elk at 350 yards downhill with 30-06. By the time I had finally killed it and got it out of the hell hole it wandered into, I was sorry I ever took that hair-brained shot!

    200 yards at our local range is the longest distance we have. I would say 150 yards was the longest shot I have taken at a deer. I used a .308, and he went about 50 yards and expired.

    Farthest successful shot was this year - ranged at 259 yards - with my Remington 710 in 30-06 topped with the Bushnell 3-9x that came with it. She dropped in her tracks. It was almost a windless day and I was shooting across wide open terrain from a ground blind. After reading the above posts I would call that an amateur distance. Say what you will about my Remington 710 being cheap, etc... it shoots very well!

    My favorite longish shot was 230 yards with my marlin 336c lever action 30/30 on a fat little doe. I was about 20 and was pretty proud of that shot, free hand standing too.

    We were required to qualify at 200, 300 and 500 yards with the M1 Garand and M14 rifles and I enjoyed that experience, but I've rarely taken a shot as a hunter or varminter at greater than 300 yards, simply because the ranches and properties where I hunt have fences or boundaries (and my lights are dimming at this point in life!).

    I've shot paper out to 400 yards.
    Game?
    My longest shot was on a white tail buck at about 200 yards, oddly, with a Marlin 336 RC in .30-30 Win. I've hunted with a .270 Win since '73, longest shot with it has been about 150/175 yards.
    The Marlin was topped with a Lyman 4x.

    I once shot a woodchuck at 330 yards with a heavy-barreled .22-250 using a Unertl 12X scope.

    I shoot at ranges out to 1000 yards quite often with my custom .300 Dakota. I shoot prairie dogs at that range and so far the best five shot group I've gotten while practicing at 1000 is 3.5 inches with Berger 210g bullets. Hitting a four inch target at that range is getting much easier as I practice (as long as I know the actual distance to the target and wind so I can set my scope correctly).

    Getting an accurate distance read on p-dogs has been a problem for me but I just got a new range finder and I think that will really help. At ranges of 600-1000 yards, the bullets are dropping so fast, you really need a very accurate distance measurement or you don't have a chance.

    I shoot out to 600 yards regularly with my Rem 700 Sendero in 25-06. I shoot p-dogs with that out to about 600 yards. I have just recently started shooting longer range hunting shots and took an antelope at 500 yards with that rifle in 2011 (didn't win a tag last year). That was a pretty easy shot since I had been shooting lots of p-dogs at that range and beyond the days prior to my hunt. An antelope looks really big at that range compared to a p-dog.

    My shooting range has steel gongs at each interval out to 500 meters (542 yards) and I get lots of practice running through them quickly with several of my rifles. One of my most accurate is my .223 Bushmaster Varminter. It takes less than a minute to put a nice group in each of them. That is great practice for everyday coyote and fox shooting.
