2707 Yard 1.54mi shot!

Whats up Guys, I wanted to share this little video I made shooting the Savage 110BA 338 Lapua at a distance of 2707 yards. I was using 300gr Berger bullets traveling at 2740 FPS. This shot required about 35 mils of hold over, with the nightforce NXS I was able to dial 27.5 mils, back the magnification off to 13X and use the bottom of the 5 mil reticle. With a flight time of just over 5 seconds it comes in pounding with 740ft-lbs of energy at 1.54mi away. Let me know if you enjoyed the video, thanks!

Very cool. I bet it's a bit of an art getting on target at that distance.

Damn dude that's impressive, I am looking at getting a 308 for some long range play but nothing that far. I love southern Oregon but having an open area to shoot farther than 600 yards is hard to come by, honestly that is the only thing keeping me away from the bigger calibers.

I agree with you there, it's hard to justify a 338 lapua purchase if you can't stretch its legs to at least 1000 yards. With the .308 it will still get you plenty far most likely past 1000 yards if you wanted to.

Wonder if that could be done with a 22 at 45 degree angle.

Very cool.

Dumb question, but is the audio recording from both ends? Otherwise, wouldn't you here the ding before the bang?

Not only did you hit it... You bounced a bullet into the target. That was awesome.

.308 Winchester is a great cartridge and under the right conditions, a 168 gr can probably make 1000 yards - just barely. It will drop below supersonic at just a bit over 1000 yards. All depending on environmental factors, of course.

If you're happy at 800 yards, .308 is probably the way to go for a lot of reasons.

A more reasonable cartridge for 1000 yards might be a 7mm Mag or a .300 Win Mag. Given an adequate muzzle brake, these might be fairly pleasant to shoot. I know that my .308 with a Darrel Holland brake is an absolute joy to shoot.

http://www.hollandguns.com/

Watch the discussion on caliber selection here:

If you're thinking that a muzzle brake may somehow upset the bullet trajectory, forget about it. My 20" Rem 700 .308 will shoot as tight as a 0.2"W x 0.05"H group at 100 yards! The reason the group is wider than high is due to the wind. It is much more likely that I shoot a little less than 1/2 MOA. With the muzzle brake! And a box-stock gun...

After watching the video, I think I know which rifle is next on my 'gotta have it' list!

Audio is from both sides, not sure I get the question. you should hear the ding from the target then a couple seconds later you hear the pop from the rifle.
