Question of the Day: Have You Ever Shot 1000 Yards? Well? by Robert Farago | May 08, 2011 | 15 comments facebook twitter linkedin email [HTML1] comments Ralph says: May 8, 2011 at 11:40 I have shot a thousand yards. Unfortunately, the target was set at 100 yards and my shot was juuuust a bit high. Reply Benjamin T. Shotzberger says: May 8, 2011 at 12:06 Give me two weeks to answer that question 🙂 .. Foghorn – Let’s do this! Reply Nick Leghorn says: May 10, 2011 at 13:59 I’ll be on the line with the 50 this coming weekend, but unfortunately June 4/5 is the first time Range 4 is open for recreational shooting again. We’ll get you to stretch your legs. Don’t worry 😉 Reply Chris Dumm says: May 8, 2011 at 13:08 I’ve shot well at 300 yards, and it certainly didn’t hurt that Tri-County Gun Club has a nicely sheltered 300 yard range. Their 100 yard range is very exposed, and the wind blows right across the shooting lanes. For our upcoming Accuracy International shoot, we’ll have to go there on their 600-yard day. Reply CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says: May 8, 2011 at 14:03 1500 yards, M60 machine gun, the arc technique-oh yeah! Reply Tony says: May 8, 2011 at 14:05 Nope, only to 300 meters. There’s not a range close by with anything longer to shoot. Reply Rabbi says: May 8, 2011 at 16:19 Nice shootin! My very first experience (about 5 years ago) with the Barrett was at a class where we went from 200 to 1000 yds. I will be in NM next week at a 3 day, 1000-yard class shooting a Steyr SSG08 (308). Can’t wait! Reply Roy Hill says: May 8, 2011 at 17:13 Yes. I have taken both Basic Precision Rifle and Advanced Phase I here. http://www.badlandstactical.net/advsniper.htm Great folks, great classes. Very competitive prices, too. These gentlemen know their stuff, have the credentials and experience, and are actual, real teachers. I hit several targets at 1000 yards on the known-distance range in both the classes, and milled and hit targets on the unknown-distance range out to 820 yards in Advanced Phase I. Badlands Tactical is absolutely worth checking out. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: May 8, 2011 at 18:12 I’ll stick to 75 feet because I don’t see very well and anything beyond that distance is pretty tough. Reply Sean says: May 8, 2011 at 18:40 Yes. But I don’t know where the bullet went. (My local range doesn’t go farther than 400) Reply Texas Deputy says: May 8, 2011 at 18:50 Yes – 1968 at Ft. Benning with the Advanced Marksmanship Training Unit. I was using my then newly re-built National Match M1 Garand with National Match .30-06 ammo. The (late) Col. William Brophy, later of Marlin Firearms fame, was my host. We actively traded collectable firearms prior to GCA68, including my trading him a mint condition M1922 .22lr Springfield with a low 2 digit serial number for a crud load of goodies. After he passed away I was notified that my former M1922 was on display in a museum where he donated much of his collection. He claimed to have one of the largest private Springfield collections. Reply John Fritz says: May 8, 2011 at 19:35 1000 yards? I wish. Hell, when I’m hitting target centers at 50 yards with my P220 Sport I think I’m Todd Jarett. I don’t have the natural talent or the resources available to me to get my shooting to the next level. Reply Magoo says: May 8, 2011 at 19:47 I’ve been doing some Class F TR as time allows. The rules and format are almost tailor-made for me since my eyes are getting old and I am a picker anyway. Ammo is also critical, which could give me an edge — or so I like to think. If I can ever catch up with work I would love to do more matches. Reply Bob H says: May 8, 2011 at 22:35 With a .308 from the deck of a cutter… and I hit what I was shooting at! (Many, Many years ago.) These days I feel lucky when my wife doesn’t outshoot me at 15 yards. Reply Mike says: May 9, 2011 at 02:56 Yeah, every month. Local club has monthly long range matches. Classic NRA prone as well as F-Class. I shoot F-Class Open; classified Expert. My mid-range classification is actually lower (sharpshooter), for some reason I always do better at 1000 than at 600.
