    We shoot for a 6" flapper in an IPSC size target at 640 and 700 yards all the time. With a well doped 77 gr OTM, it's not THAT difficult.

    Pistol Pete is skeptical. Oh boy, I assure you he smacked that pig at 700, and I assure you there are most people here Not Skeptical. I missed that little pearl.

    No, but keep practicing and maybe one day...

    I can hit a 1 moa target at 650 at the range I go to, but not with regularity. Wind is the challenge for me and something I need to improve on. The 2 moa target is a much simpler affair.

    Sigh. While the shot on the pig was not witnessed by anyone...

    Nailing a 2" gong at 625y (in wind) with decent repeatability was witnessed by two folks, and caught on video, and one of those guys is an M4C regular.



    This thread has been around for over a year:

    And yet, unsurprisingly, I'm still called out with boring regularity as if I'm making shit up. (http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread....kac-on-the-way)

    That is damn fine shooting. 600 really starts test the ability of the shooter and equipment and .223 is not ideal. Takes a real shooter to accomplish that reliably. Well done, Euro.

    AHHH SEEENT IT!!!

    Seriously, Euro shoots like a man possessed by Apollo himself.

    Also, we drove up to the high plain that he took the pig on. It's a rolling shelf that goes on for miles, and even in the half light of dusk or in the grainy image of a PVS-14, you can get a sense of the openness.

    Placement is king. Internal ballistics matter a bunch when defeating barriers or achieving penetration in difficult targets like a rhinoceros... But even then, placement placement placement.
