So I joined this group, club, organization to get some pointers on reaching out to 1000 yards. However the verbal beatings some people have taken here makes me apprehensive to ask any questions or post any responses in threads. I guess I'll just stick to reading and hope someone asks the question I wanted to ask eventually.🥷

I'm a relatively new member here. I actually have read this site for quite a while but registered just a few months ago. As others have said, simply searching the site can get you answers to a lot of questions.

I recently had a question regarding if I should order a 20 MOA scope base for a new scope. My approach was to do my own research, on this site and other internet searches, and come to my own conclusions. Then I created a post here asking for others to check my math/thinking. As a noob/nobody here, I was actually very impressed with the helpful responses that I received. But IMO part of that was that I remained open to, and thankful for, the suggestions I received and didn't set out on an Internet ego-trip trying to tell everyone offering their thoughts why they were wrong. I'm a pretty bright guy I also but try to be wise enough to know that when somebody with a ton more experience on a topic tells me I should look at something a bit differently, my default position should be that I'm probably the one that needs to adjust my thinking. There's plenty of time to step back, re-assess and then return and respectively challenge aspects of a discussion if necessary. But IMO it's just common courtesy to carefully consider the advice that other posters take the time to offer.

it completely baffles me how so many people can become so butthurt over the slightest shit on the interweb, first off if your confused about something try to physically figure it the f out, if that doesn't work try searching and reading about it... if you still can't resolve your issue take a day to think about whether or not to ask the question here... then if you think its appropriate to start a thread take a few more days figuring out how to word it so you don't sound like a moron.. after that if you haven't already forgot about the problem (in which case you should immediately slap yourself in the face for even considering wasting our time with something so insignificant in the first place) write the post and maybe if it really interests someone on here you will receive an intelligent response....

jk. or am i.... 😂

none of your business
This thread reminds me of when I hit a 7" plate at 300Y with my 30 caliber pcp air rifle using .047BC pellets. Out of about 15 shots in 4-7 mph winds with a 3-4 mil holdoff I hit it 3 times. Does that fall within the definition of repeatable? Not too me. All I know is I was happy to have hit it.

I'd like to take a few pops with someone's ELR rig at the distance in the OP's video, even though it's a pretty big target! Worth a try anyway. He definitely gets an atta boy.

I'm with the crowd that is not about to spend $$$$ to travel, etc, to risk not advancing past the first leg in a ELR match. You'd have to be super into ELR and/or have plenty of expendable income I guess. Maybe the people that put on these matches are trying to limit the amount of entrants and that way certainly works.

12 years ago I remember hitting a 4' plate at 2500Y quite often with my 375CT and thinking that was a long way off and now look what ELR shooters do, crazy!

People go to matches to have fun and it seems to me that a higher hit ratio match would be the most fun, it is for me that's for sure. If you put out moa sized targets and it gets windy that match is going to suck!
But I can see that past a certain distance envelope the targets would get too big to be practical if you want to hit any of them often. The trick is balancing distance with target size in a match setting, not too small, not too big.

As far as ELR matches go I think they should have a qualifier match the day before the real match with 338 cal on down using under 100 grains of powder, with a lower entry fee and medium cost prizes. Also another division for the big guns 338 cal and above and over 100 grains of powder. All these guys get to engage all the targets at reasonable distances at least 5 times and have the targets reasonably sized to hit often for the top shooters.
Following day take the top however many shooters that finished high in each division and have them battle for the win. The victors getting the higher cost prizes.
If it works out for a 3rd day, or after the main match on day 2, set out some bigger barn door targets farther away to be engaged in a side shoot for those with the desire to do so.
Hopefully that will satisfy most of the shooters????

Can't find any evidence of you being attacked in the last week. Makes me think you're the troll.

Found a now locked thread from the end of January where you probably should've been banned for thread crapping in the PX. Theis wasn't in that thread. Not a good idea to continually attack Commercial Supporters. So far the second one you have attacked.



New and up and coming.
*checks join date*
I call bullshit. Or you hacked somebody else's account.

Evidence I've seen you're either a hacker or a troll.

In case you didn't realize it @THEIS and fcs are two different people. And you attacked fcs first.
You know the funny thing is.....the mod said he was actually going to call out the other guys and had no problem with me. You just valided everything I said. Not here to educate or help just here to spam and shit on/in threads. I didn't direct anything towards you and here you are SD for thesis

    I probably wouldn't even be able to see the target at that range even with a 25 X magnification scope so well done and maybe we do need a governing body to recognise this type of achievement

    If you can see a 7” square at 400, you can see that target at that distance

    Now you're just repeating what I said.

    Noticed you are in Colorado. Any chance you're on the Western Slope?

    No sir, I live N of Denver at the moment.

    Just yanking your chain on attitude. With ELR, I've had a blast learning, stretching legs, buying toys. I'm naïve enough to think I could, Wanted-like, curve a 357 magnum around a tree and clip a fly's wings at a mile. How hard can it be?

    Hi,

    YEP the hit to move on sucks if you do not hit, no doubt about that. @Diver160651 outline is way better for sure.
    @Diver160651 you want to put that style match on in August or September? I will sponsor it and pay all range fees, ROs, etc etc
    We'll this would not be the first time someone has suggested this. While we have the spots already vetted on BLM capable to do this, the last thing I'd want to do is be responsible for a crowd of unknown entities. At least at our private club where we run the Team UKD, PRS and monthlies, the club is indemnified, yet not big enough to shoot unlimited distance.

    BTW here is one of my ELR spots. We have two ranges set up at 90-degree angles, you can see guys walking from the range to the right that is out of frame. Most of the guys are on the Hide. We'll get guys camping out for the weekend and shooting. That said it is just a fun shoot, yet we have more guys than some ELR "matches" lol.

    PS the worst are the ELR matches that say something like "We had 7 guns on the line today", yet that usually means fewer shooters like 4 people. When people want to know why some of us seem to call the BS flag on a lot of the ELR chest-pounding, this is why. More often than not they are selling something that is not 100% on the level, just to make things seem bigger than they are.

    There won’t be the 3593 or 41 target next month. This targets are on a neighbors pasture and the cows are in there starting early April.
    Damit, WTH!!!!!!! . Well luckly we have a match going to 3900 yards soon here in Tx only one hour from my home , that is gonna be a hoot!!!! The beast is ready, well at least if it is not Kansas windy. I am totally pumped for that one.

    Those targets are on a neighbors field and the cattle are usually let out on that one early April. It usually ends at 2913 for most of the rest of the season. Don’t let that fool your the hit percentage at 2913 isn’t really that high. I was only able to get 2 impacts on it once last season.

    Lots of good points made in this thread.

    On my range, 2 MOA targets are used for learning DOPE on a rifle. 1 MOA targets are for testing equipment and shooters. A TYL at the end of the range gets down to 1/2 MOA. But 1/2 MOA at 800 yards is not nearly the same as 1/2 MOA at 3600 yards. The increased yardage adds in more wind directions, and terrain features.

    Evidently there are going to be disagreements on target sizes for ELR. It would probably be helpful if some type of voting took place to finally come up with some standards maybe most folks could agree with.

    I am amazed at the distances in ELR shooting.
    Every year, it just stretches out further.
    Just give it a go and have fun.
    Smacking the piss out of ferals at distance is fun.

    I hit a 10” X 10” plate at 4500 yards the other day....no biggie as the winds were a mere 10-15 with a few gusts here and there. Wish someone else was there to see it. Managed to hit 2/3 with my tactical operations sniper kit,

    Roulette. I hope everyone understands this guy (and all the rest of these) just won a round of roulette.

    Obviously it takes some significant level of skill and knowledge to even get into the ballpark of the target at that distance, but the target is probably 1/3 to 1/4 the height of elevation spread just from MV, being generous. Never mind wind, aerodynamic jump, drag variability, etc...

    It's the same thing as 1000yd bench rest world record groups. Impressive, sure... in the same way winning the lottery is. Throw enough groups at paper at 1000yd with tuned out systems, and eventually you're going to throw some .1 MOA 5 shotters and .25-.35 MOA 10 shotters down range.

    Anyway, I still maintain some poor schmuck has probably been hit by a deck gun or rail gun directly at 20-25 miles so what's 3000-6000yd? ;)
    Last I heard, Scharnhorst held the record... 24km /15 miles according to Guinness, on HMS Warspite, 08 June 1940.

    Though, I wouldn't be surprised to hear our rail gun testing had bettered that considerably, just don't have a number for it.

    At the moment I can't even get my FAC approved because of lockdown waiting for the police to put on masks and gloves and do my home security check. We have all the fun in the UK.
