  • How old when you first broke 1000 yds?



  • #51
    I was 16 at Thunder Valley precision my first time (20 now and currently deployed, waiting to get back home). I was shooting my savage .223 which is now my 6.5CM. Got a hit at the mile target there once with that rifle, maybe twice.

      66 in the desert a few weeks ago. 1275 yards at 14" steel plate. Awesome experience. 1 mile will be my next milestone!

        I was 51, we were leap frogging IPSC's down a road, light drizzle, absolutely no wind, my 900 & 1k were 1st round hits, I'd shot to 800 before. By my hits at 9&1K, I could have hit a half moa size plate, will never forget it, but neither will my checkbook
        I've never shot in air that dense since, rain yes, but hearing the bullet in flight all the way to the target was awesome. First taste of bullet trace on every shot also. Debunked theories on spin drift with 6.5 bullets, and corioli-anal effect that day also.
        Within a year I'd made the journey to 2100 yards, have toned it down since and concentrate more on making every shot count, but that's a whole new chapter.

                                          34 years old. We'll see how long it takes to get to 2000Y? Maybe this summer?

                                            I was probably 24yo when I set up and did a 10 round group at a 1000y with a Tikka model 55 in 308 win. Group was about 24". That's when I decided to build my 308 Baer.

                                                42 for me. Hit 1400 with a 308. I understand now first hand how a 175gr 308 struggles past 1000.
