In this video I explore the true definition of Long Range Shooting.
If you ask shooters what they consider to be long range shooting you will get a mixed bag of answers.
Some will base it of their skill level, others will base it on the distances used in known distance shooting competitions such as F Class or Benchrest, and others will base it on something else entirely.
In my opinion, we should use the rifle/ammunition’s supersonic capability to establish “long range” for that rifle ammunition combination.
That way, it becomes scalable to the rifle/ammunition combination.
For instance, for a .308 900y is near the end of the supersonic zone whereas a .375 Cheytac or a 338 Lapua Mag is still well and truly supersonic at this distance and so a 900y shot with such a rifle isn’t really a “true” long range shot.
It’s a long way…but it is well within the capability of that rifle whereas with the .308 you are pushing it.
Yes…we can shoot further i.e. into (and beyond) transonic but I believe this constitutes extreme/extended long range shooting.
This is just my opinion.
I would love to get your opinion on this so leave a comment below.
