Did not mean to open a can of worms, nor did I intend to duplicate and previous posted topics, I was just surfing and found something I thought was interesting and wanted to share.
I have been fascinated by some shooters skills at long range, and fully understand the difference, between hunting and shooting, 1000 Yard Bench matches are not about Hunting, it is about Shooting.
Hunting is a 15 Yard kill with a bow and the average gun kill is only of whitetail deer is but 25 yards.
My personal best shot was 264 Yards Standing offhand with a Win. .270, Rem. Model 6 Pump, fitted with a 3x9x40 Tasco World class scope yielding an 11 point Whitetail buck, my proudest kill was at 12 yards with a 50 Ca. Black powder Rifle cap lock in which I built yielding a 6 point buck First kill of a Deer, funniest kill Rem. Mt. Rifle Win. .270 35 Yards, head shot that was not intended, the deer stumbled, my buddy didn't know I was going to shoot and bumped into me, from behind causing me to fire the rifle, all with in a second or two, nice 8 point typical. Bullet went through the ear of the deer and took a chunk of Brain pan, Really did not know I had hit him but went in the direction to see where he had gone when found him laying on the ground dead.
If the Moderator wants to remove the Scope Post that is fine with me.
