This video was uploaded to YouTube last year by 1Grizzman and is starting to catch some attention. It’s a pretty cool demonstration of how the right long-range gear mixed with the proper know-how can produce impressive results.
According to the video, the shot was made from 2,530 yards, or about 1.43 miles.
This from the video description: “I went out early in the morning to beat the mirage, luckily there was very little wind around 3-4 mph coming from the left, I dialed 2.6 mils Left. I had to dialed the maximum elevation my scope (Nightforce NXS 5.5-22×56 MIL/MIL) had at 27.4 mils then held over 2.5 mils on the reticle to get me to 29.9 mils. The 300 gr Berger bullets … start to go subsonic at 2400 yards, so I figured some weird stuff might happen. My first shot was pretty even height wise but was way off to the right, the first 3 shots were sighters to get me on target and then on my 9th shot I hit the target, then had one more hit on my 12th shot. So total of 2 out of 12 shots hit at 2530 yards.”
