Reply 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 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 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 Outstanding. Reply I think KW figured it out. LMAO Reply It’s a tease. Besides, if I told you, Karl would have to kill me. And you. Reply As long as he’s 400 yards away, I’ll stand still while he lobs the first 2 rounds in. Reply So long as he’s restricted to attempting it from 400 yards, we’ll be fine. Reply 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 It’s all very funny until Karl plucks your eye out and eats it. Reply Whassa big deal? My 1911 can do this. From a Ransom Rest. At two yards. (Okay, one yard.) Reply 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 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 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 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 I don’t need no stinkin’ custom gun to do that! Just a roll of twine and some sticks… Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
