Long Range Shooting

The popularity of last month’s blog on getting started in 3-gun competition has inspired us to explore long-range precision shooting this month.  Bullets have had the capacity of hitting targets at long distances for several decades, however the standards have increased drastically.  For example, if one could hit an apple at 100 yards with a Pennsylvania long rifle in the 1700’s, he was considered to be a sharpshooter.  Today the current world record for a 10-shot group at 1,000 yards measures 2.687 inches across.  The distances that constitute “long-range precision shooting” are debatable to some, but for the purposes of this blog we will say its between 1,000-2,000 yards.  Beyond 2,000 yards would be considered ‘extreme long-range shooting’ and with equipment costs upwards of $15,000, the barrier to entry is quite high.
