    am not a bragger, but a few years ago i made the lotngest shot on a elk. I do my own hand loads, and i practice at least a 1000 rounds long range before hunting season. i ranged this elk at 1103 yards, had a dead rest and all the time i needed. shooting my 7mm mag my hold over about 5 ft i fired one shot and hit the elk. It took about ten steps and dropped, i would not recommend this at all unless you are very familiar with your equipment

    100 yards... I live in Florida, what can I say. Shots do not exceed that very much down here.

    I popped a squirrel off the fence in my back yard from about 25 yards with my pellet gun. I'd love to try some real hunting.

    Clay about the .45 ACP shot, my neighbor can duplicate it on a more or less routine basis. He's much better than me with the handgun and I once thought I was a pretty fair hand. If he ever stays home long enough I intend to make a video of him shooting long range and aerial shooting with a handgun so you guys won't think I'm lying. Oh yeah he is also the fellow who shoots trap with a Beretta 390 using only one arm. He usually breaks 20 singlehandly and it really makes the hard core trapshooters angry which is exactly why he does it.
    I've dumped deer over 500 yards with one shot several times and elk at better than 700. I don't recommend this for everyone but I have the right rifle, scope, and ammo with which along with my rangefinder and windmeter I use a lot year round. My kid can hit them further than me. Dear in mind this is in Wyoming where we can see for miles, have time to set up for the shot, and know what we are doing. I usually don't even mention this sort of thing because some hunters simply do not understand it, no offense to anyone intended.

    I remember when I was 14 and on a small hill overlooking a flat area just east of Tucson Az. There was a 50 gallon drum about a ½ mile out in the middle of it. I looked at my friend and he said give it a try. Colt 1911A1 45ACP 230 grain FMJ. I aimed at the drum and elevated to front sight to a point I couldn’t see the drum and squeezed it off. BOOM! 1,2,3,4 thud!!! I hit the darn thing, honest to god I did!!! You think I can do it again? Got a case of ammo!! LOL!!!

    We were at Capitan New Mexico out on the range late Saturday packing up to go home and a jackrabbit made a fatal mistake of jumping up on the burn while we were still at the 1000 yard line. Nobody was down range. M1A, 172 grain 7.62NATO M118 round, open sights at 32 clicks and 7 clicks left equals’ one big furry poof!
