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.
