2707 Yards 154mi Shot Savage 110BA 338 Lapua - YouTube



Published on Oct 27, 2013

I attempt to shoot a steel torso target at a distance of 2707 yards 1.54mi was the GPS reading. Corporal Craig Harrison is in the record books for the longest confirmed kill at 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. It took me 21 shots to get my first hit on the target, this was definitely one of the toughest shots to make.

Rifle-----Savage 110 BA 338 Lapua
Scope--Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 MIL/MIL
Bullet---Berger 300gr OTM

So this gun would have no problem with a six year old even all the way from the back of the classroom?

overall, i'm not impressed except that it was done with open sights.

Didn't the first shot miss? In the real world, that target would not just stand there for the rifleman to shoot his balls off.

Umm. . . yeah, actually the target probably would. There's really no way to tell that somebody fired at you from a mile and a half away unless he hits you.

I was thinking more in the lines of a Dictator like Joseph Kony, this is an amazing firearm.

But if you want to go an shoot up classrooms.. ??

There have been educational videos about how a bullet is percieved from a long distance shot. Even elk will stand a bit shocked when the bullet hits the ground but once the sound catches up to them, they consistantly startle if the bullet hit close enough for them to notice. Humans are different, some will jump before the sound, others are too dumb even after multiple shots.
