    Nicely done, that’s quite a rig! 200 is about as “long range” as I get these days.

    I want to get into it and that was my initial plan when I got my FAL but lately I've been focusing on defense shooting.

    My buddy has a 250 target in his backyard and sometimes we shoot 550 yards when the corn comes off.

    The best gun to date on the 550 yard range is a 7mmSTW. It’s been a long time but if I recall, it held a group of 3 under 10 inches. And it was shot by a man that knew little about shooting....he thought ALL 7mms were 7mm Remington Magnums and shot several 7mm Rem mag cartridges thru that gun....he became alarmed when the “cases looked all jagged”.....

    'Ever wonder why the OP rarely if ever responds in the threads he creates here at GlockTalk? Because he's not the least bit interested in anyone's replies...he's just offering clickbait here to increase the views of his crappy YouTube videos.

    I had one of my AR's go "off" some years ago while fiddling with the safety. I was holding it at around a 45 degree angle so that 55 gr bullet reached max range. Not sure how far that would be with the 5.56x45 cartridge.
    Never leave a loaded mag in the rifle. I sweated bullets for days on that one. Major brain fart on my part.

    I don't know that 500 yards counts as "long range" (it isn't even full service rifle range in competition), but I got my rifle Excellence in Competition badge last year in a combat conditions EIC match that went out to 500 yards, using randomly drawn, off the rack M16A2's with iron sights. In addition to the shooting at man-sized silhouette targets from 25 to 500 yards, you had to do it while wearing your helmet, FLC, etc. and you started at each yard line by running up a hill to the firing point, then firing prone unsupported with a time limit.
