    Box to 1000m



    So gist of it is, take the scope off your rifle, take a brand new scope out of the box, install it, and be the first to hit 1000m.

    So the rules are that you have to mount the scope and take at least one shot at 100m. Then you have 9 more shots to get out to 1000m. If you need more than your total 10 shots, you must wait 2 minutes to receive another round.

    Also whatever gear you bring with you (such as tools to mount the scope, shooting rests, optics, etc) must be brought to each stage.

    First to hit the 1000m wins the scope.

    One thing I learned is, just go out and do it. My dad had never shot over 200 yards before we went out and did a 700 yard shoot. He brought his hunting rifle and was doing fairly well.

    The key to learning anything is to actually do it. Then if you want to be good at 500 yds, shoot regularly out to 700yds, 800yds or even further.

    The furthest shot I ever attempted (unsuccessfully) was 2000yds with a hot rodded 243 Win. The furthest shot I ever made successfully was ca. 1500yds with the same rifle. Simply getting bullets out to that range and even near the target makes shooting at shorter distances much easier and you will approach shorter distances with much more confidence. Push yourself and your rifle to the very limits and you will learn what you and the rifle are capable of. I laugh at people who think they need a fricken cannon to get out to distance.

    I have to say, shooting at 700 yards and even having the wind kick the piss out of you, makes shooting at 100 yards really boring

    Having our local range only go out to 200 yards is quite a bore now. The only reason I even have a membership is due to my restricted firearms.

    A brand new scope out of the box requires bore sighting and then sighting in. After that it's about reading the wind and knowing the ballistics of the cartridge. Most typical hunting cartridges drop like bricks between 300 and 400 as well.
    "...2000yds with a hot rodded 243 Win..." Hold over will be in multiple meters. A 115 DTAC(heaviest bullet you can get) with an MV of 3120 FPS, drops 232.3″(19.4 feet. 5.8 meters.) at 1,000. And that's without any wind.
