    My fartherest deer was a spike at 430 yards. I reload my 240 Weatherby also. I use to shoot a lot of groundhogs, my best one was a little over 800 yards. It took me 13 shots to get him, laying on a picnic table in the hot sun.

    SLF300wby it is a store, and they allso have a catalog & web site.( www.wideners.com) . They pretty much have it all. I started reloading about 30+ years ago but don't shot much at all any more. The last Wideners catalog I recived was in 2006.

    Hawgman that is some nice range shots there but you better watch the repetetive shooting there. The 240 Weatherby Magnum barrels are known not to last to well.

    Default Way out there!

    Thats a great shot. I have done alot of long range shooting,up to 1000yrds. The farthest I have ever shot anything was a doe at 523yrds with a 300 WBY MAG. I do not recomend anyone shooting game at this distance. I shoot alot and when I set a rifle up to shoot effectively at these distances, I shoot it at 100yrds,200yrds,300yrds,400yrds,450,500,550,600.No t many places around here to shoot much farther than 400, but if the occasion arises, with a very steady rest I can pull it off, but only if I know the true distance to the game.

    Default Long Range

    One more thang, I anyone is thinking of shooting game out at long distances. The first thing you need is a rifle cartridge that is effective at those ranges (300mag's,7mm mag's,Weatherby mag's,.264win.mag,Winchester Short Mag's, and especially the Remington Ultra Mag's. Also th rifle has to shoot a minimum of a 1inch group at 100yrds. Just for example of long range trajectory.My 300 Weatherby sighted in at 1inch high at 100yrds, With a 165 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip, velocity at 3350fps at 5ft from the muzzle, drops about 14 inches at 400yrds, 30 inch at 500, 50 inches at 600, 118inches at 800 and about 225inches at 1000yrds, thats 18 ft 9inches!. So when the guy at work says he killed a deer at 600 yrds with a 30-06, either it was luck or only 350 yrds. Not many people can guess any where close to the correct yardage out past 300. You must have a very good range finder!!! I dont know everything about shooting and rifles.But I sure do love to play with them and learn how certain loads work.

    SLF300 is talking about a five shot group at 100 yards. And is right about what he is saying. You can google 1000 yard shooting or 100 or 200 so on so on. This way you can see what the pros are shooting at what distances. I personaly don't own a gun that won't shot less than a inch group at 100 yards, other than maybe my 22 long rifle. But I come from a long line of fine shooting
