One Two Three by Robert Farago | Feb 05, 2011 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments JOE MATAFOME says: February 5, 2011 at 18:03 Please explain what I’m looking at, I don’t understand clearly what is written on the target. Reply John Fritz says: February 5, 2011 at 18:05 I’ve been sitting here for about a half an hour hoping someone would ask that question. ‘Cause I sure don’t understand what I’m looking at either. Reply porschespeed says: February 5, 2011 at 18:22 From the top best as I can decipher: 2 Rnds 950 FPS Black Talon 6 Rnds Black Hills 230 FMJ #22 Wight Gray(?????) The larger question, what does any of that mean. Who, what distance, elevation, temp, baro, humidity, rest, and on, and on… Reply KW says: February 5, 2011 at 18:29 I’m guessing it’s an 8 rnd mag loaded with two different types of ammo, at 400 yrds, in a hurricane, weak hand only. Reply IndyEric says: February 6, 2011 at 07:04 Outstanding. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: February 5, 2011 at 18:31 I think KW figured it out. LMAO Reply Robert Farago says: February 5, 2011 at 18:41 It’s a tease. Besides, if I told you, Karl would have to kill me. And you. Reply porschespeed says: February 5, 2011 at 18:48 As long as he’s 400 yards away, I’ll stand still while he lobs the first 2 rounds in. Reply Vigilantis says: February 5, 2011 at 18:59 So long as he’s restricted to attempting it from 400 yards, we’ll be fine. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: February 5, 2011 at 18:46 You’re a silly man RF, I don’t even want to guess how much time I spent trying to figure this out. You got us all real good. LMAO (P.S. I want to see the real test, hopefully sometime soon. Reply Robert Farago says: February 5, 2011 at 19:15 It’s all very funny until Karl plucks your eye out and eats it. Reply Chris Dumm says: February 5, 2011 at 19:28 Whassa big deal? My 1911 can do this. From a Ransom Rest. At two yards. (Okay, one yard.) Reply Chris Dumm says: February 6, 2011 at 03:14 Actually, I used to be able to hit a manhole cover at 100 yards with about 4 or 5 shots out of 7. I can’t imagine the real-life holdover for a .45 ACP at 400 yards, but I’ll bet somebody could look it up in a ballistics table. If handgun ballistics tables actually go that far out. Reply Caleb says: February 7, 2011 at 14:22 I did the math actually, bullet drop on a .45 ACP at 400 yards is something like 40 feet of drop. Plus if there’s a 10mph cross-wind it’s another 4-5 feet of lateral drift. Reply Travis says: February 5, 2011 at 21:02 I’m gonna just guess that we are looking at a 100 yard target. And then guess that the 6 shot group is about 2.5 inches. Extrapolating that to 4oo yards, that makes 10 inches? I guess it is theoretically possible if you can figure out how high to hold. If they can make it happen I will be totally impressed. Maybe all the patronizing “Sharp End of the Stick” talk will be backed up by equally patronizing “Sharp End of the Stick” walk. Reply Pete says: February 6, 2011 at 03:08 I can make soda cans dance consistently from 50 yards with my custom P-13. I can’t imagine hitting a target with any 1911 at 400 yards. Reply Bob H says: February 7, 2011 at 18:43 I don’t need no stinkin’ custom gun to do that! Just a roll of twine and some sticks… Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
